Check out these cute and affordable little guys!
Feeding Bengalese is uncomplicated; they will happily live on a foreign finch seed mix and enjoy extras such as spray millet and egg food. Most birds will take greens such as cabbage, kale and spinach or nibble at apples or oranges. Access to grit is also important for the calcium element when breeding.
There are no clear differences between male and female birds apart from the male sings, while the female only makes a range of softer noises. When the male sings, he sits upright, making himself as tall as possible, flairs out his tail and sings with all his heart.
