    I am Extremely interested in owning and possibly breeding a pair. I have done this in the past when they weren't so difficult to acquire. At the time, they were highly therapeutic for me during a very difficult time.
    My only intent is to find the joy and healing that I was gifted enough to be given without realizing it at the time. That's all.
    Wheather I'm worthy or not, I really can't be sure.
    howervever,I do know how I felt having these tiny magical creatures in my life! They were AMAZINIG!

Hi, I'm looking for a pair of Strawberry finches because of their beautiful song. When I was younger you could set a trap and catch them easily because there where so many here in Puerto Rico. Now I think they are extinct and I cant find them here in PR anymore. If somebody reads this please let me know if you can help me find a good pair for reproduction. Thanks

ananya roy - 2012-12-21
i have a pair of strawberry finches housed together with a pair of chestnut munias. the munias were very friendly towards the strawberry finches. the munias use a nestbox in which both of them stay for most of the time, in fact, they rarely come out unless they are hungry or thirsty. the red munias (we call strawberry finches 'red munia' in india) never showed any interest in nest box so i did not give them any. recently, the male red munia is changing its plumage into darker red color and is singing beautifully to his mate. the female also responds to his call and dances. i have noticed that the female's beak is turning blackish.(it was pale orange before). now they are shredding paper and cotton and are trying to carry them into the nest box which the munias reside in and they are being chased away. are these signs indicating that the strawberry finches might want to breed? should i give them a nest box or separate them from the chestnut munias? please help! thanks
