    Just a quick question (I am a hedgehog fan and feeder!). Any ideas how to help finches with the symptoms of fat finch disease? I’ve seen it before, but would like to know how to help the one in my garden. Apparently it can be cleared up within 2 days if a caged bird. I know about clean feeding stations etc, but the local Wildlife Centre just suggested capturing it and taking it in…impossible and with all the stress. Any suggestions please.


    Sorry, Kassie, I hadn’t even heard of fat finch disease so am no help at all.

    I hope your finch recovered well – it’s lovely of you to try to help :o)
