Estrildids are, in my opinion, the most beautiful finches on earth. They live in Africa, South East Asia, Oceania and Australia. In many countries it is prohibited to import birds. This is the case for most European countries. To keep them for the aviculture, it is necessary to breed them in captivity. Many species are already lost because breeding them is difficult.
In the past I have bred hundreds of birds of many different species, like: Granatina’s, Cordon bleus, Amandavas, Firefinches, Waxbills, Twinspots, Pytilias, Seedcrackers, and so on.
