Vet-Recommended Essential Care Supplies for Finches

Last Updated on June 3, 2024 by Ali Shahid

To properly care for finches, pet owners should have the following essential supplies on hand: an appropriately sized habitat (at least 24″ L x 14″ W x 18″ H for a pair of finches), high-quality finch food, millet spray, cuttlebone, cuttlebone/millet holder, treats, habitat paper or other paper-based litter, food and water dishes, a variety of perches and toys, a birdbath, nail clippers and styptic powder, and grooming supplies. 

Finches also require full-spectrum UV light for 10-12 hours each day to supplement their exposure to natural sunlight. With the right environment and diet, finches can thrive as pets and provide their owners with endless entertainment and joy. As a veterinarian, I would recommend the following essential care supplies:

  1. Food: Kaytee Wild Bird Finch Food Blend
  2. Food and Water Bowls: MotBach 2 Pack Stainless Steel Bird Feeding Dish
  3. Cage: Yaheetech Bird Cage 64-inch for Small, and Medium Size Parrots
  4. Cage Cleaner: Oxyfresh Premium Crate & Cage Cleaner
  5. Perches: LIMIO 6PCS Bird Perch 2 Grape Stick
  6. Travel Cage: Prevue Pet Products Travel Carrier for Birds
  7. Bird Bath Spray: UnRuffledRx Aloe Vera Bird Bath Spray
  8. Toys: Bird Toys Bird Shredding Foraging Toys
  9. Treats:  Nemeth Farms Worlds Freshest Sun-Dried Spray Millet
