These are one of my favorite finches, the other being the Cutthroat finch. These guys are seemingly more active than a lot of other breeds ive worked with and are much more curious and responsive to human interaction. Still, not easily handled! Beautiful cheeping noises, and relatively easy to care for. Make great companions and I enjoy keeping finches in my house in various rooms. Make sure you give them plenty of sprouted seeds! These are a VERY friendly species and get along with other birds, just please make sure not to put them with birds that may have aggression to other birds!
