Description

Description: The Orange Crowned Weaver (Euplectes orix and E. franciscanus) hails from Africa. Other common names are Red Bishop, Grenadier Weaver. Orange Bishop, Orange Bishop Weaver, Orange Weaver. In the wild, the Orange Weaver finch will make it's home in reed beds close to the surface of water. True to its name, male orange weavers construct complexly woven nests during breeding season. These birds, like most other finches, are social, and enjoy the company of other finches. Males are much more colorful than the females, however, after breeding season is over, the males plumage returns to that of the female. The transformation is amazing.

Geography:  Africa

Song/Call:  Click here for the song of the Orange Weaver

Size/Weight: 5.5" 

Sexing: Weavers are easily sexed if the male is in breeding plumage. If not, both genders are exactly alike.

DNA Testing  

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.

Temperament: If keeping these birds in a mixed collection, they may be housed with larger, more robust finches such as cut-throats, java sparrows, and other similarly sized weavers. Keep an eye on the birds when they come into nuptial plumage as they may become aggressive at this time. Separate overly aggressive birds from the flock to prevent fighting and injury.

Breeding: In the wild, Orange Weavers are social and enjoy the company of other finches but are aggressive while breeding. As a pet, they are noted to enjoy living along and enjoy bouncing from various perches in a cage setting.

Diet:  Classic Finch Seed, Australian Blend GoldenfeastMillet, Dried Egg Food, Mineral Grit, live food (mealworms), greens

Orange Crown Weaver (Red Bishop)

What a Stop the Show Star! For some reason I never had one in my 20 years of keeping more than 15 finches at a time. Going back for a mate!

Beautiful Birds

The Orange Crown Weaver was handsome. We ordered a male. We did have to pay for a DNA test to get a male, bu he was even prettier than the picture.
