male or female ?
I just bought a gouldian finch but I don't know if it's a male. I never have had a white breasted one before so I can't tell. I have not had any for 20 years so I've forgotten a lot. Thank you, Kathy
If you go back to my website and scroll down to photos, you will see only males. The males have a pure, vivid head color, no black feathers mixed in, and the color area is larger than it is on the females. Next look at the abdomen. Males have rich golden tummys. Females will have more of a faded yellow look to their tummys and the area of their head color will be smaller and not as bright. There are usually more black feathers mixed in also with the head colors.
Hope this helps, Jeanie
