    I know how to sex them by looking at the beak and in some
    colors the colors of the feathers, but what about a normal
    colored java. i went to Jones and Co. pets (petstore) and
    they have java finches in a cage together, i know there
    must be just one male there!!! I have 2 females, i need a
    male, my females being paired together lay too many
    eggs... How do you sex javas by just looking at them, do
    they sing a lot like zebra or society finches so i wont
    have to wait a long time to find a potentail mate for my
    females. I have patience so should i just sit on the floor
    watching the stores birds hoping one will sing, if that is
    what i have to do i will! But is there a way i can just
    look at them and tell, like from a few feet away. Like is
    the male bigger or does one of the sexes always have its
    tailed raised high ( my male society finches do that!)
    Well in help on this matter is appretiated, thanks!
