where can i buy a finch bird

So Im entertaining the idea of getting a small group of society finches. I hear theyre easy for people who dont have tons of time for interaction and are pretty good apartment birds. I think theyre the cutest little things and would love to bring home a small group (after some more research of course).

My best friend stressed that I should adopt but I cannot find a rescue in the Portland, OR area that is carrying non-parrot birds. I know theres some bird shops (other than petco and petsmart) around but should I wait to adopt? I worry that Ill have to adopt multiple single birds and have to introduce them. I was hoping for six to eight (have the space for the cage thankfully!) and that seems like a very long process. While Id be happy to do it, I just worry for the birds.

So question boils down to: would it be a bad idea to buy a couple of finches from our local petsmart/petco or do I go to a local bird shop? Or do I just wait around for adoptions to pop up?

We appreciate you allowing us to assist you in getting your aviary a new feather buddy. Just a few things to let you know about. We only ship out healthy birds because we are extremely proud of the condition and care of our birds. Before each bird departs for its journey, we inspect it. Since it takes 24 to 48 hours for them to get from our local USPS office to yours, we only ship Monday through Wednesday and keep an eye on the weather in both locations because we want them to get to their new homes safely. We find that this is less stressful for them when you can go pick it up after your local USPS office notifies you when it arrives. Make sure there is plenty of water available when they get there so they can refuel after their journey. We must be notified within 48 hours of the arrival of your new feathered friend if for some reason it does not arrive safely. In the event of an emergency, we will require images of the ill or deceased After 48 hours, your new feathered friend is no longer in our care, so we cannot be held accountable if anything happens to them. For this reason, it’s critical that you notify us of any problems as soon as they arise. Please email us at nybssales@nybird. com or call 1-800-772-2473 with these concerns.

My closest friend insisted that I adopt, but I can’t seem to locate a rescue in the Portland, Oregon area that takes in birds that aren’t parrots. I’m worried that I’ll have to adopt several single birds and introduce them to other people, so should I wait to adopt? I know there are bird shops nearby besides Petco and PetSmart. Thankfully, I have room for the cage, so I was hoping for six to eight, but it seems like a lengthy process. Though I would be delighted to do it, my concern is for the birds.

Therefore, I’m considering acquiring a few society finches. I’ve heard they’re simple for folks who are decent apartment birds and don’t have a lot of time for socializing. I would love to bring home a small group of these because I think they are the cutest little things—after doing some additional research, of course.

The main question then becomes: should I visit a local bird shop, buy a couple of finches from our local petsmart/petco, or just wait for adoptions to become available?
