    I'm not quite sure what it is you want to know. Your Gold Finches, Bull finches, Siskins and Green Finches are all british and are better kept and bred separately and not in a mixed community. Preferably in a planted aviary.

    Zebra finches & Bengalese do well in a mixed aviary and Gouldian finches don't like the cold.

    It all depends on how you want them classified. By difficulty, country of origin, sociabilty, colour, temperament or any other characteristic.
