Studies have shown that having a pet adds years to your life. Finches as pets do this and so much more. Finches are the smallest of the pet birds available today. They are also the most enjoyable birds to have around the house. These birds pack a lot of personality into very small bodies. While they tend to be tiny and delicate, you would never know that if you heard them before you saw them. You may not want finches as pets if you are the type of person who prefers a quiet or near silent house. Finches can be many things, but their bright and chipper chirps prevent them from being quiet. Some people find their noise annoying, but the majority of people hear the joy in that sound. If the thought of happy birds chirping at you every morning does not turn you off the thought of finches as pets, then you are well on your way to finding a new household friend. With their diminutive size, these birds work well in small houses or apartments. Unlike their larger cousins, they do just fine in a smaller cage. With their tiny size, they can get their flying time in while still inside their cage. These two factors alone make these birds ideal apartment pets. Now this is not to say that they do not need a certain size cage. Like any species of pet bird, finches need a cage large enough to spread their wings and fly. The best rule of thumb is to purchase a cage that is two to three times wider than the wingspan of the bird. This gives them plenty of room to fly, climb, and play without taking up half of your living space. Their convenient size is probably the biggest reason why people love finches as pets. When you consider bring this kind of bird into your house, there a few things that must be taken into consideration. You already understand about their perky little chirping, and know that they do not need much space, but there is still more to learn. The next thing you must think about when considering finches as pets is that they are not solitary birds. Most birds are flocking birds. Very few birds like to be alone, but some birds can be alone longer than others can. Finches are not one of these birds. They prefer to have people around all the time if possible. When this is not possible, they can benefit almost as much by having other feathered friends to keep them company. If you are not a person who stays at home all day, or that can give your bird hours of attention, it is better for both of you that you get two or more finches. When it comes to having finches as pets, remember a few key things. First, they are vocal little birds. They love the sound of their own voice, especially in the mornings. Second, they like company. The more the merrier when it comes to these friendly birds. Thankfully taking care of two finches is no harder than taking care of one. Finally, like any pet, they will benefit from your attention. Most finches enjoy human contact.
