How to tell gouldian finches male or female

What are the physical characteristics and differences to how to tell gouldian finches male from a female?

Easiest to do if both males and females are housed together. The colors of the feathers on the males is far more vivid and clear than the colors on the females, most clearly seen to be different for males and females is the purple breast. It just takes a little practice. Other species of finches are much more difficult to tell the sexes. Hope this helps.
