The bullfinch is divided into two types, large and small. The great Norwegian or Nordic word is often mentioned but this is a false name for the great originates from different races.
Therefore, the name attached domestica increasingly nowadays, because a true culture bird. The size is also easier to grow than the small and much more popular.
He is stronger than what the “ordinary” bullfinch, it measures about 17 cm. The gender difference is evident in the red color of the abdomen and chest in the male, the female is more pink-cream.
Bullfinches are seed-eaters themselves, but in winter they eat like all kinds of berries. During the breeding season they eat insects quite often, to meet the demand for animal protein requirements.
There are special blends of bullfinches on the market, all weed seeds are also suitable. Dandelion Buttons are like empty picked, they love those little seeds.
For European birds or hybrids thereof is a legal obligation with specific statutory rings. Non-ringed birds love is forbidden and punishable.
The obligatory ring size for the small bullfinch is 2.7 mm.
The requirement for the large bullfinch ring size is 3.0 mm.
Pyrrhula the pyrrhula pyrrhula is indeed the Northern bullfinch, but I think that few fans that this subspecies purity.
Often meant the commonly cultivated in northern bullfinch ‘large’ bullfinch this is a new plant variety of different subspecies.
Pyrrhula pyrrhula pyrrhula Northern bullfinch , Pyrrhula pyrrhula germanica German bullfinch and Pyrrhula pyrrhula cassini Cassini bullfinch.
So just as large or small bullfinch.
So the Pyrrhula pyrrhula domestica.
Color Mutations the bullfinch
Brown bullfinch:
In the brown bullfinch is the black color of the hood and turned into chocolate brown wing feathers. Especially a brown doll is a beautiful warm brown bird. For the brown man is the difference with the wild color less conspicuous but no less beautiful. The red on the chest remains unchanged. Brown inherits the gender factor.
Pastel bullfinch:
The thinning factor, as it were pastel colors. Because that dilution does not always strong, there is much variation in depth to pastel birds. The color depth can vary from dark to very light gray. By colliding pairs of pastel birds is called gray leaf or double pastel creation: a very light gray bird with pale wing feathers. The pastel factor inherits sex-linked and may hold any other color cultivated.
Brown pastel bullfinch:
Pastel Brown is a combination of brown and pastel. For me this is the best mutation. The doll is a beautiful pastel brown light brown light brown bird with a gray hood that still must be well defined. The man is even more beautiful with the red breast that sharply outlined against the light brown wings and light gray-blue back. Pastel Brown inherits sex-linked.
Topaz bullfinch:
Topaz is the new name for the color formerly called ino. The view from this color mutant resembles a pastel. The difference you see in the pastel color of the beak and legs in the dark pastel, but at the very light brown topaz. Also, the topaz eyes red.  Ten years ago, this mutation is fairly common, but nowadays you can find here or there is trouble with a breeder that this mutation is still in its possession. The topaz is a recessive inheritance.
Yellow bullfinch:
When the yellow man is the red of the chest changed to yellow. The yellow doll is only recognizable by the two tiny yellow feathers on the wing in the wild red-colored doll. In combination with the brown pastel factor is certainly an asset for those looking for color changes in the bullfinch. Especially the pastel man is a very nice change. Yellow is a recessive inheritance.
White and pied bullfinch:
These mutations is very nice. The red color on the chest of the man is more or less affected.
The white is a recessive inheritance.
