Hi ive been breeding star finches for yrs , the cock has a bright red / orange face and the hen has way less coloration of the face. Ive been breeding and selling pairs using this reasoning . I only just learnt the hens dont have colouring on the bottom jaw. Well my breeding efforts should improve now and for those people I may have sold a pr of cocks as a breeding pr I apologise, i guess its part of being human :roll:

That's unreal mate but some hens do show some head colour under the lower bill but no where near as much as cock birds do.
