Recommendations include a good finch mix, an excellent source of protein which includes eggfood and live food such as mealworms. A few good sources of calcium, and greens vegetables. Some recommend skipping the greens because they lack in protein, in favor of using a vitamin/mineral supplement. Water should be available 24 hours. You can put vitamins in the water or the egg food. Vitamins should not be used in place of a balanced diet, but instead as a supplement to a balanced diet. Millet on the spray is a favorite treat of finches, but make sure they should not be given too much. Some people prefer to add soaked or sprouted seed; others refrain from it because the soaked seed is susceptible to bacteria growth.
