The Zebra Finch is a type of exotic bird, quite small and one that in recent times is becoming a common companion animal. It is characterized by its intense red beak that contrasts with its gray plumage with spots of other colors. Being a bird from other countries, it is not always known the care that these birds need to live comfortably and without problems. If you also have one at home as a pet, here we tell you how to care for a Zebra Finch.

Steps to follow:

1. The first thing to keep in mind is that Zebra Finches are gregarious birds and, at the very least, they need a companion of their kind to feel happy. In this way, when acquiring our pet, it will not be enough with one copy but at least a couple of them.

2. As for food, the mixture is the basis of their food and, the most common, is to give them a parakeet mixture. Some experts recommend adding more birdseed to this type of mixture, in order to complete the diet of Zebra Finches and get them to eat more and better.

3. The first days that we have these little birds at home, Zebra Finches will need a lot of tranquility to be able to recognize their new habitat. To get used to people and to trust them, you need to speak softly to them, whistle a bit, and approach them with slow movements.

4. We must also provide a suitable cage so that our pets can flutter and live comfortably. Especially when there are more than 2 specimens, we will have to choose a cage large enough for all Zebra Finches.  Here are tips on how to choose the right cage.

5. Also, these little birds love to splash in the water. So we must place a container where they can bathe and change the water daily, since -although they have another trough- they will also drink from there.

6. In the same way, it will also be necessary to carry out a correct and frequent cleaning of the cage of our small pets. We show you here how to clean the bird cage.
