I have a pet sparrow, due to it being raised from 7 days old and not wanting to leave. Can I put another bird in the large cage for company? If yes, any suggestions as to what bird?

I'm building an aviary in my spare room that's going to be 6ft x 6ft x 3ft. I'm thinking about putting 5 pairs of finches in it and was wandering if I could mix zebra finches with plum headed and chestnut breasted munias or gouldians? Any advice appreciated, thanks.

Hiya, got a question ! I have a single female bourke parakeet, she has a huge cage (and is getting a even bigger upgrade soon) would it be possible to give her a friend like a single bengalese finch? And if so male or female ? Thanks !

I've kept a single female Zebra finch. She bonded to me and would fly to greet me when I came home. She always wanted to sit on my shoulder and cuddle up to my neck. She would also answer me when I talked to her. She laid the cutest little eggs. I paid her a lot of attention and she lived happily with me for 6 years.

Hi, I'm new to finches and was wondering if I could keep a male and female canary with two society finches. The cage is 37" wide. Can I introduce them all at The same time? Thanks, Amt

The soil floor seems a good idea,but it could do with a wire-netting or twilweld base under it ,or RATS will eventually dig through and take your birds. Ive lost Peach faced lovebirds to rats in a similar setup.In the UK your seldom more than 20 feet from a rat!

I have recently began keeping budgies and now zebra finches. I have an outside aviary that began it's life as a tomato cage. It's 6ft tall by 20 feet or so. The bottom of the cage is soil about 20 inches deep and after they joyfully ate down my tomato plants, I've replaced them with different plants and small trees i thought they may enjoy. The unintentional beauty of this cage is the soil. The seeds fall and make sprouts. They love fresh greens. The dirt and rain ( only half is covered) filter and clean the cage. The birds fertilize thier own food. They love to eat insects and be on the ground. It also allows you to grow greenery up the sides. The soil bottom was a happy accident but I feel like it's really healthy for them and allows a more natural experience. Self cleaning makes the whole thing more enjoyable too. There is also zero smell. I've had them escape and come back so I guess they like it.
