Finch Chicks Death


My finch chicks die between 10 and 20 days old. All of them are very healthy at first, then gradually begin to weaken and then die. I foster my Gauldian, Shaftail and Owl finch Chicks under Bengalease.
What would be the reason? Plz Guide me.


Answer:

Hi,

The foster parents may not be feeding the chicks after a certain point. Maybe because they look different? Or there could be some type of illness. You could take them to a Vet to try to determine if they are healthy. It’s really a guess without having a vet check them.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
