Description

Description

Description: The pied society finch (North America) or Bengalese finch (elsewhere), Lonchura striata domestica or L. domestica, is a popular cage bird not found in the wild.  Although their history is not clear, the Society Finch was developed through selective breeding of other finches, and its ancestry included the White-rump (or White-rumped) Mannikin Lonchura finches.  Because the Society Finch is so tolerant of others, they do well housed with other species and are often used as foster parents for other finch species. (Before using as foster birds, it is advised to test and ensure your society birds are clean and do are not carriers for any diseases that could be problematic for other finch birds.)  These birds like to be close together and tend to all roost in one nest if kept in a group. In an aviary they lay eggs and crowd into a single nest, interfering with incubation (which is performed by the female and lasts 14 days) or damaging the eggs. Thus they breed better if kept as single pairs in individual breeding boxes.

Geography: Asia

Song: The Bengalese song tends to be a squeaky warble or rattle of notes. Songs vary among individual males and may sound more like the song of the male who raised them (even if fostered by a different species).

Size / Weight: 5" / 11 gm

Live Span: 7 to 8 years

Sexing: Pied Euro Society finches are unable to be sexed visually. 

DNA Testing 

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.

Temperament: The Pied Society Finch is one of the most peaceful of finches. It is gregarious, calm and social with others of their own species as well as other finch species. They are rarely aggressive and will be the first to back down if confronted by another, more aggressive finch.

Breeding:  Pied Society finches are easy to breed.

Amazing Song!

I love these little birds! Being a first time finch owner, I was hesitant to buy any live animals online but was quickly persuaded otherwise when my pair of finches came quickly through the mail and we're happily singing on the way home from the post office! The male and female pair are adorable and so friendly to my other pair of orange cheeked waxbills, who are much more wild and crazy. So far I've had them almost a week and they're doing wonderfully. Thank you Finch Farm for the amazing little creatures! Simply a joy to own!
