I AM loved by emmil I AM loved by emmil
I know I am loved... when hundreds of my kinds in the wild are trapped with net in the rice field. Every 10 to 20 birds are sold for 1 USD to a bird seller who later colors them and sells them in a cookie sized cage for human kids' play things. They will starve to death and end up in a garbage bin 3 days later. This photo:… is the cruelest reality that happens to wild finches in Indonesia.

somehow as I read the description, the sarcastic way you present it makes me feel like its meant to make the viewer[which most likely hasen't done any of this] feel guilty.

Did you just read the words on the photo?
Didn't you read what I wrote on the artist comment too and check the link I put there?

Yeah, I was talking about the life of Pipi's species in my country.

Yea.I was just saying how sarcastically you pitched it.Just made me think your where trying a guilt trip there.

I don't mind save the polar bear acts and so on even if I find some of them to be kinda redundant ,but I can't say I feel any sympathy to a cause where they try guilt tripping you into joining up and all.

On a happier note I was thinking of buying this society finch.
There's a beautiful white one I saw there thought I'd be happy with any color really.
I treat my pets well so in the interest of continuing to do so what would you recommend?
Is there certain foods he or she shouldn't eat?

I plan on getting an expansive cage but should I let it out once n a while?

How social are they? Should I buy two to keep each other company?

Just give it a balanced diet consist of seeds, veggie, fruits, eggshell/cuttlebone, fresh water daily and eggfood weekly.
I think all birds which are hand raised will be social; problem is no one sells a hand raised finch. Pipi is a rescue.
They will bond to each other if you buy two and they won't need you; it's a general fact for all bird species.
You can't let a bird out of cage if it won't step up on your finger. You'll end up freaking it out when u catch it to get it back to the cage later.
But the most important thing is if it's alone, make sure you can keep it company 6 hours a day at least. Else, it's best to buy two. :)

eggshell/cuttlebone . What is that?Do you mean to feed it actual eggshells or is this some sort of bird food brand?

I have plenty of time to spend with it and the birds they're selling are pretty young so there's time to get it used to me.

So until it trusts me I shouldn't try letting it lose in the it.

fresh water wont be a problem.I buy spring water in bulk for my other pets.

I'd like to befriend it so I think I'll do one bird then.

Boiled egg shells.
If you like to eat boiled eggs, you can crush the egg shell and serve it on a dish or mix it with seeds.
Good for calcium supply. You can also buy cuttle bone and hang it in the cage. :)
