Known as The Good Luck Bird, the Java Rice Finch originates from Asia, but has since been introduced into many locations. In captivity, it is gregarious and long-lived. They are calm but intimidating due to their stature, they are approximately 5-6″ from beak to tip of tail, making them suitable with the more assertive finches. They were considered pests to the rice fields, hence their name. DNA testing is available to ensure gender if desired.
