Potentially Aggressive Finches

Australian Finches: Beautiful (Zonaeginthus bellus) and Diamond Firetail cocks (Emblema quttata) become aggressive when breeding. These species in Nature breed in solitude rather than as a colony and may become over aggressive to their own kind when the space in the aviary is limited. No more than a single pair of each of these species should be held in an aviary. These species are also very selective of their choice of mate and unproductive single pairs in an aviary should be considered incompatible. Red-browed finch (Aegintha temporalis) is a sensitive bird until established then tends towards aggression with other species. Black throat finch (Poephila cincta). Certain but not all families of Poephila cincta are prone to aggressive behaviour. Crimson Finch (Neochmia phaeton). Neochmia phaeton is the most aggressive finch in this group and not suitable for an aviary with other species. Best to keep in a large aviary by themselves where they grow stronger and become hardy good breeders.

Foreign Finches: Potentially aggressive species include: Cuban Finch (Tiaris canora), Cut-throat Finch (Amadina fasciata), Rufous-backed Mannikin (Lonchura bicolor nigriceps), Black-hooded Yellow Siskin (Carduelis magellanica). Madagascar Weavers, Pintail Whydhars, Crimson finches, Golden Song Sparrow (Auripasser luteus), Rufous-backed Mannikin (Lonchura bicolor nigriceps), Black-hooded Yellow Siskin (Carduelis magellanica) are best house with their own species.
