I do love these Gava Rice Finches for their many colors ... I owned a few many many years ago.

The only thing bad about them is their toe nails grow so fast and insanely LONG very very quickly ... you have to have a good hands on relationship with them in order to trim their nails every 3 weeks or so. If you don't they get really stressed out and will die sitting in your hands when you try to cut their nails.

They are a bit flighty and don't train well with new owners unless they are hand raised by a breeder from the day they were hatched, they have to have that daily hands on interaction. Sadly ... back in the 80's breeders just bred birds for people so they could make money. They didn't think people would want a hands on relationship with these stunning little birds.

I hate to think of the many birds who died in their new owners hands or even in the avian/vets hands while getting their toe nails trimmed years back.
