Like their close cousins the Society Finches, Chestnut breasted mannikins or munias are peaceful little birds who can live happily with others. These are simple little finches who an live in a cage right up to a large flight but can cross breed with other mannikin speices and Societies, which may be desirable but if not, keep them separate. They make a typical quiet finch song and are easy to feed with no special requirements. If you want something a little more exotic than a Society pair but not costing a fortune or having special needs, then these are birds to consider.
