    Sex of Society Finches?

    Is there an easy way to tell the sex of society finches? I've read males and females look the same and the only way to tell is their singing....but it seems like both of mine "sing"...so would that mean they are male? Just curious?

    Yup, society finches aren't sexually dimorphic, so you have to watch behaviour. Males will sing/dance to impress females, and the females are a bit more quiet and reserved.

    I seen one of them "dancing" on the perch today singing, so I'll have to watch them closer to see if I can tell. No eggs yet in their cage though! haha
