Zebra Finches Depressed?
I have adopted 3 Zebra finches about a week a go. So I know they are still getting use to their surrounding. But I sit with them all day as I am in Home office, and watch their behaviors. They sit in their nest most days and only get up to fly to their food, and rarely some water. I understand that these are social birds and playful, but all they do is eat and sleep. They at least sleep through the whole night. But I have toys with bells, bath house, dust bath ground, and grass on the bottom of the cage for seeking and foraging. Plus fruit sticks at a treat and millet spray, which all of these things they dont touch. Only nest, a few perches, and daily bird seed. They also will not eat any fresh fruits and vegatables.
The birds are about 8 weeks old, so I understand this comes in time, but would like to know if I am doing something wrong. Or if they are showing signs of depression as I live in a very grey and rainy part of the world.
Thank you! Any advice is good!
