Society (Bengalese) Finch

Guest Author - Mavis Metcalf

Society Finches are different than other types of birds because they do not have their origin in the wild. It is thought that they were obtained by crossing various types of finches, which may include the Spice Finch, that is part of the Munia and/or Mannikin family. Often, when crossbreeding different species, the offspring are mules or infertile, but with the Society Finch, this is not the case.


This is a picture of a pair of Society Finch that my daugher owns. They have since provided us with some adorable baby finches. Please see the article Baby Society Finches - Watch Them Grow to see the babies as they grow from egg to grown up.

The Society Finch has turned out to be an exceptionally good find in that they are very social birds, they breed easily, they get along well with other birds and they will even raise other birdsí babies. They have a very pleasant song and are quite active in a cage or flight.

They are an ideal bird in both cage and flight Ė content to hop back & forth between perches or fly from one end to the other.

Two Society Finches, whether there is one of each sex or both the same sexes, will sit on and hatch eggs from other finches. They are often used by breeders of Gouldian Finches if they have a pair that does not raise their young, because the Society Finches will feed and look after the babies

I would be very surprised if you donít find these birds to be a delightful addition to your home. You couldnít ask for a more easy going little finch.

Take the Canary & Finch Quiz to see how much you know about these birds.

Here is an e-book Iíve written that is devoted to Zebra and Society Finches
