Finches can make wonderful little pets and this book by Nikki Moustaki provides a lot of information on helping you pick and care for a pet finch.
Choosing a pet of any kind for your family takes thought and planning, and the author explains what you should think about before bringing a finch (or finches) into your home. One of the considerations is to ask yourself if you will be able to provide a good home for one or more of these birds.
Although there are more than a thousand different finch species, not all are available as pets and Nikki gives a small sample of some of the more commonly kept finches, with information on these particular birds.
The author gives examples of places to find and purchase finches and provides things you should look for and and things to ask and also provides both good and not so good reasons to make the purchase at each place.
You will, of course, need a cage for your bird(s) and you can find information on what you should look for in a cage and supplies to keep your finches happy and safe.
This book provides good basic information and is written in an easy to understand
manner. The chapters are easy to follow and topics are divided into helpful tips, reminders, warnings and technical stuff. If you are thinking of adding a finch to your home, you will find a lot of great information in the book.
