Bicheno Finches their care and Breeding: by A.J. Mobbs (Author)
Bicheno Finches their care and Breeding: by A.J. Mobbs (Author) (9780958710220)
One of the main problems experienced by potential breeders of this small finch is the difficulty in sexing by visual means.  The author describes an almost infallible method of sexing, which will no doubt prove helpful to those who, in the past, have given up any attempt to breed the Bicheno because of their inability to identify correctly true pairs.
