Product Information

Finch Soft Food is a high-protein supplement for finches and soft bills. Feed to breeding birds, as a substitute for live food, or to improve a seed-based diet.

In the wild, finches feed mainly on green seeding grasses. Many species also supplement their diet with live food such as insects and larvae. Their natural diet generally provides superior protein and nutrient levels compared to the dry seed mixes fed in captivity. Commercial finch seed lacks a range of essential nutrients, such as amino acids, vitamins & minerals which are particularly required for breeding or moulting birds.

  • Excellent Nutrition: Highly digestible protein with a balance of amino acids for muscle and feather condition.
  • Improved Breeding Condition: Vitamins, minerals and omega 3 & 6 to enhance egg production and chick health.
  • Ideal Live Food Substitute: Easy and nutritious replacement to feeding live food.

Feeding Guidelines

Feed as a moist crumble, or mixed with finely diced vegetables, soaked seed or other moist foods. Prepare food fresh each day to avoid microbial contamination. Birds that consume live food may be enticed to eat Finch Soft Food by mixing in small insects with the prepared food (e.g. chopped mealworms, fly pupae or termites).


To feed as a moist crumble:

Mix 10g (1 scoop) of powder with approx. 3mL (½ tsp) of water

Slowly add water to the powder while mixing with a fork to form a moist, crumbly mix.


To feed with soaked seed or vegetables:

Mix 10g (1 scoop) of powder with 20g (2 scoops) diced veg or soaked seed

Other foods such as finely chopped greens, fruit, mashed hard-boiled egg or sprouted seed can be used, depending on bird preference. Add a little extra water to moisten the mix if necessary.


Feeding Guide


Other Birds

Finch Soft Food can also be used to boost the protein and nutrient levels in the diet of other breeding birds including parrots, lorikeets & cockatoos. Feed as a moist crumble at the rate of 10-15g per day or as veg mix at the rate of 20-30g per day.
