Finches: Even though there are many different kind of finches, (Lady Gouldian, Stars, Shaft Tails, Owl Finches, and Society Finches) Zebra Finches, pretty and lively Australian birds have long been among the most popular. They have been bred in aviaries and kept in people’s homes for over 100 years. Zebra ﬁnches are social animals that need the presence of others of their kind at all times. Zebra Finches are ideal subjects for the hobbyist who wants to study animal behavior. Zebra Finches are always available at Bracken Bird Farm.
