These birds are around four months old, and came into the shop on November 9th, 2017. They are Foreign Finches – also known as ‘African Finches’. They should live between 5 – 10 years, although in the wild sometimes they only live for 2 years depending upon conditions. This is a male and female pair. It is important for children to learn to respect other forms of life, and how to take responsibility for the needs of other creatures. As these birds grow, we intend to transfer them to a bigger cage so they can fly around to a greater extent. Mai-An has dediced these birds are called ‘Snowflake’ and ‘Gravel’.
