    Breeding Pair

Also, what type do u think would be the best to get?:
    Europen Goldfinch
    Long-Tail Grassfinch
    Owl Finch
    Gouldian
    Lavender waxbill
    Orange Cheek Waxbill

    Cordon Bleus
    African Red Head

    do you think i could hand raise a clutch of finches
    No. Hand raising is extrememly demanding and dangerous. It's only advised to do it if it's 100% neccessary.

    You can visually sex a lot of finches, is normally relies on the brightness of their colouration, colour of beak or completely different markings for each sex.

    A good beginners finch would be the zebra, they come in lots of different variations (as you have listed) and the other birds you've listed can be quite "fragile". Maybe a pair of weavers, or cordon bleus though.
