Spring, Seeds, and the World’s Most Spoiled Birds
I have a pair of green singer finch. They are in a cage designed for breeding cockatiels or single parrots- in other words it’s gigantic for finch. They get live mealworms and the best organic birdseed, and warm water for bathing at least once a week. I even lined their nest with a knitted yak cozy:
The thing I struggle with is keeping their greens fresh. they enjoy them for approximately a microsecond after being picked. So I’m going to replace the floor of their cage with garden flats full of tasty greens and grasses.
I started the seeds over the weekend, and they just started to sprout.
I’m watching them grow hour by hour. I love Spring! I’m sure the birds will be happy when they get access to the flats, but I want to wait till there is enough growth to support them.
