    They should be breed no earlier than two years old. Gouldian
    finches are known as bad parents and they are likely to
    abandon eggs and chicks. This is not to discourage you but to
    inform you. Also it is wise to have a pair of society finches
    on hand just incase trouble rises. Now it depends on the bird
    but from what i have read they need time to adjust to the food
    and may take their time to try knew foods. But just keep
    feeding them the yummy foods like greens and chopped carrots
    occassionally some chopped fruits and nuts and egg food. Also
    if you supply the nest with the material already inside they
    will like that and will kick out the stuff they do not need.
    They seem to prefer half opened nest box lined with fine
    grasses. My finches personally like green and white material
    and sometimes cotton, toilet paper and alfalfa and some others
    i can't think of. Well good luck!
