We’ve had our finches, Calliope & Humphrey for several weeks now and they are fun, busy little birds.
Reasons why Calliope & Humphrey are awesome:
1. They like to nest together. We have these two thatched houses that we bought at Pet Smart because the “pet specialist” informed us that finches like to nest. For awhile, our finches didn’t seem too interested in the nests, but then we moved them for better access, and the other night they were both peeking out of the nest. They were adorable.
2. They like to groom each other. Our finches definitely have a morning routine. I come down and uncover their cage and they begin to chirp and bounce around the cage. After a few minutes of flying about, they settle on a perch and begin to clean each others feathers.
3. They love to play with hay. We have a hay ball, another suggestion from the “pet specialist” and the birds love to pull all the hay out of the ball and they carefully pick specific stalks and use it to pad their nests.
4. They eat together.
5. When they get tired, they sit very close to one another on a perch and snuggle. Love.
