Description

Description: The Forbes Parrotfinch, (Erythrura tricolor) is one of the smallest members of the Genus Erythrura.  This species is fairly simple to keep and will amaze you with it's beautiful blue plumage and vivacious personality. These Indonesian finches are known by a variety of names, such as Tri-Colored Parrotfinch, Sunda Parrotfinches, Tanimbar Parrotfinches, Timor Parrotfinches, Blue-breasted Parrotfinches or Three-colored Parrot Finches. Forbes Parrot Finches for sale are one of the most popular parrot finches available! This breed is vivacious, very energetic, and always on the move. They are also very gentle, which makes them an ideal choice for a mixed, large and well-planted aviary with winter shelters (in colder climates). If kept indoors, an attractive flight cage with natural branches and some various plants would be ideal.

Geography: These aviary gems are usually found in subtropical or tropical dry forests, along the forest edge, in grasslands, dry savannas, and bamboo thickets, as well as nearby farmlands of Indonesia and East Timor.

Song / Call:  Click to hear the Forbes Parrotfinch

Size / Weight: About 4 inches or 10 cm in length, including their tail.They weigh from 0.28 - 0.32 oz (8 - 9 grams).

Sexing: The gender of the Forbes (Tri-color) Parrotfinch is easily determined as the females are much paler in plumaged compared to the male. 

Temperament: Forbes Parrotfinches have a very friendly and inquisitive personality, and grow quite confiding with their caretakers, greeting them enthusiastically at the aviary door as they come in to tend to the flock. Forbes Parrotfinches love water. One can frequently see them jump in and out of their bathing dishes. Bathing will take place a couple of times a day, summer or winter - and are an important part of their daily grooming.

Breeding:  They are generally active, hardy and easy to breed, and are compatible with many other finch species. Even though, they may nest year round, provided conditions are favorable for raising young - best results are usually obtained from Spring to Autumn. The pair bonding of the adult Forbes Parrotfinch is very strong, and in the aviary they are seldom seen apart. However, should either one die, a new partner should be introduced as soon as possible. Pet Parrotfinches readily accept a wide range of nesting accommodation, from a standard "gouldian" or "budgerigar" nesting boxes, open wooden nest boxes to wicker or cane elongated tubes.

Diet: Euro Goldfinch SeedAustralian Blend GoldenfeastDried Egg FoodMineral GritOatssoaked / sprouted seeds, seeding grasses, various greens and live food - especially during the breeding season. They readily accept fresh fruits / veggies often, and greens such as parsley and dandelions.

Great Little Songsters

These are great little birds with beautiful chirping songs. My pair has already had a family of four healthy youngsters. They are in a big flight cage and seem to be loving life.
