I have 8 of these birds with me and I'm totally satisfied with them because they bring me no trouble at all and add such a beauty to my garden.
In terms of appearance they come in vivid colors, sometimes I stare at them like 5, 6 hours enjoying the beauty. They are perfectly shaped little birds which will grow up to about 5 inches maximum.
They are really easy to be fed. What I do is put enough amount of grains sufficient for about two weeks and I don't have to bother for the whole time ! They love green leaves and vegetable apart from the grains. They also love something which helps them to sharpen their beaks.
They are also very interactive. When you go near the cage with some green leaves in your hand they know you have come with something tasty and they become really active and give this begging look, "Hey jessie, please give me those quickly " :D.
One problem I had with these birds is that sometimes they fight with each other over a nest !. I've put several nests inside the cage and seems like they have a problem about the ownership for those.
All in all I highly recommend these birds for you. They'll make you really happy with their beauty as well as the interactivity.
