Hi Crazy Cuban,
great birds are very active birds but mine seem to like been in colonies of 4 pair to 8 pair colonies breed easier in a colony in my opionion sexing is male has red over eyes and females before eyes and intesity of rumps hens seem to have less red on rump and also love planted avairies and livefood and very peaceful towards other finch species
cheers
