   Finches make lively virtually "hassle-free" little companions!

   Finches are very neat, they are also quiet and easy to care for. A perfect pet for people with limited space and time. Unlike a parrot, a finch does not require daily interactive attention.

   The keeping of finches is a worldwide hobby! These delightful little birds are found native throughout the world and there are hundreds of species. Finches are very attractive and active. They come in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and personalities. Some have been kept as pets for over 500 years!
