I caught a stray zebra finch today when she came to perch on my bird's cage. She may have been free a while because she's a strong flyer, but I'm under the impression that it's too cold here in Nor California for these birds to survive long in the wild. She's in a separate cage in the same room as mine but clearly wants to be with mine. She's basically calm, eating, and drinking water. I've got her cage partially covered until she gets used to us. I'm concerned about mites and other parasites she may have picked up while free; wondering how best to proceed - how much can a vet tell about her health by looking at her? They're pretty quick to recommend blood panels around here; do you suggest this? How long should I keep them separate? Anything else you'd recommend I do before trying them together? Thanks.
