Are Oxalates Bad for Finches?

Does this mean we should never feed spinach to our finches? I like to buy big bags of baby spinach leaves, and I usually have them around. So not feeding them to the birds means I have to go buy something different for them. Well, it turns out I don’t have to eliminate spinach from their diet, and neither do you.

When your Finch’s Neck is Twisted (Twirling Syndrome)

In the poultry world twirling is called wry neck; the bird seems to have its head upside-down. As you watch it try to move around, you notice the movements are jerky. He may not be able to pick up food easily. This bird is suffering from what we call twirling – so named because the bird turns in a mad spin trying to right himself. It’s the same thing as wry neck in chickens.
