General Finch Care

The National Finch And Softbill Society (NFSS) website - The NFSS is a great source of information. If you become a member, you will receive a newsletter every two months with informative articles and bird show/fair/seminar listings. Members who wish to breed can also purchase bands for their birds.

Finchworld - Contains information and links on many different finch species, care and housing, health information, and a state-indexed breeders list. But in my opinion, the most valuable asset of this site is its Finch Forum. I have the capability of offering a message board on this site, but declined because there already is a fine forum with a very knowledgeable and loyal following at Finchworld.

eFinch - Many sections of this site are not completed yet. However, the "Varieties" section contains some good information, including an extensive collection of photographs of the mouth markings of hatchlings of various finch species and mutations.

The Finch Self-Medication Website - Scientists have seen birds and animals use plants, soil, insects, fungi as 'medicines.' This website lists articles that explain findings on this remarkable ability.

Salem's Java Finch Pages - This is an excellent site focusing on the Java Rice Finch with tons of information and wonderful pictures. If you're not interested in Javas, don't let that dissuade you from visiting. Much of the information here applies to other finch species as well. This is a site you don't want to miss.

Feathered Flyer - A site covering all types of pet birds, with very good information and original articles on finches.

Lady Gouldian Finch - Site managed by a Gouldian finch breeder. Contains great information about care of Lady Gouldian finches.

My Gouldian Aviary - A site about an outdoor Gouldian aviary in Australia.

African Waxbills - A site dedicated primarily to African Waxbills, but with information about other species as well. Lots of neat pictures.

National Bird Designs, Inc. (Avi-Culture) - Sells the Avi-Culture brand probiotic that can be added to eggfood. I use this product three times a week in the eggfood to prevent Candida (yeast) infections, and to date, I haven't had any new incidences of Candida in my aviary.

Foys Pigeon Supplies - Pigeon Supply Store selling a variety of medications that can be useful in finches as well.

Jedds Pigeon Supplies - Pigeon Supply Store selling a variety of medications that can be useful in finches as well.

Message Boards

Finch Forum - One of the best places to turn when you need advice from people who have been there. No book or web page is going to provide you with everything you will want to know. Sometimes you just can't beat experience. Even if you don't have any questions, its a great place to lurk to see how others resolve their problems (someday their problems may be your problems too).

Avian Veterinarians

Niles Animal Hospital and Bird Medical Center - This is the website for the veterinary center that I use. I've listed their site because it contains some nice articles about bird care. Note: last I checked, it appeared that Niles AH has changed hosting services and is in the process of bringing their site back on line. I've left the link here in the hope that it will eventually come back up. If it does not, I will remove this link from this page.

Association of Avian Veterinarians - This site contains an avian vet locator for finding a vet near you.

Baby Bird Avian Directory - Follow their Directory Listings link to get to a directory of avian veterinarians. Note this site also contains directories of bird breeder, bird supply sources, bird-friendly pet stores, and pet rescues.
