Question
Hi my finches had baby's I just saw do I feed them anything different  along with their. Normal. Food?

Answer
I would go to ladygouldian.com and order something called "Miracle grow". This is a soft food that is high in nutrients but easily digested by little bodies. I would also remove all seeds and just have pellets in there. When a mother bird feeds finch babies seeds, they can sometimes get stuck in the digestive tract and kill the baby

Requirements of Questions: -CHECK MY WEBSITE WWW.FINCHFAQS.WEBS.COM BEFORE ANSWERS BEFORE ASKING ME -Must use proper grammar (typos I can understand but if you won't make an effort to type properly don't expect me to make an effort to answer your question) -Must include finch species if known and if bird is domestic or not (if you don't say, I will assume it's domestic) -Be as descriptive as possible -No asking about how your bird died If the above requirements are not met, I will dismiss your question (especially the dead bird one). I have no issue donating my time but will not waste it either. I have owned various species of Finches for over thirteen years now and have done everything from hand-feed babies to nurse sick adults back to health. I am most knowledgeable on how to treat Air Sac Mites, feather mites, finch breeding, and finch first aid.

Experience

I own finches, have read handbooks on how to care for them,and have researched the internet dry on finches.
