    Red brow firetail finches

    I feed around 30 of the feisty little buggers,took me a month of patience to get them to fly to my hand.

    haha how many do you want? As a young bloke we used to lift them as naked chicks out of the nests in the wild and feed them up,they make loyal and fantastic pets..and destructive baa-steads too, they chew the living ***** out of everything!
