My mother got a bunch of these birds when my stepfather wanted to start raising them last year. For tiny birds they can be a handful, as I learned from helping out with them from time to time. These birds can be a bit flighty so you need to have them in a good cage and be careful to keep it locked. There was a time when I was visiting my parents and someone left the door open for a second, and trying to catch the few that got out was an adventure to say the least.

I would advise anyone thinking of getting into these tiny birds to possibly gain some experience in handling them first and would not suggest for a beginner. If you wish to raise these birds it may be best to start with a couple and get a feel for them before adding to you flock.
