Description

Description

Description: The Red-faced Parrotfinch (Erythrura psittacae) also known as the Red-throated Parrotfinch, is a beautiful and vivacious aviary bird from the remote island of New Caledonia. They are always exploring their environment and, because of their high activity level, they are happiest when housed in aviaries. If kept in cages, they should have at least 3 feet of horizontal flying space.

Geography: New Caledonia 

Song / CallClick to hear the Red-faced Parrotfinch 

Size / Weight: 4.5"

Sexing: Monomorphic (visually difficult to sex). However, DNA testing is available to ensure desired gender.

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: Red-faced Parrotfinches have a natural inquisitive nature, and seem to have the happy knack of recognizing the breeder immediately and greeting them at the aviary door. They are totally vivacious, energetic, and always on the move, be it on the ground or on the wing. They have a gentle nature, a characteristic that makes them an ideal choice, for a mixed aviary and an ideal choice for a new breeder. Water plays an enormous part in the life of a Red-faced Parrotfinch, quite apart from sustaining its life; they love jumping in and out of it. Bathing will take place a couple of times a day throughout the entire year. 

Breeding: It seems appropriate to give this very active and curious bird as much space as possible. This isn't exactly a colony bird but nor are they overly aggressive towards each other in a large, well planted aviary, even when breeding. In captivity, Red-faced Parrotfinches seem happy to accept any form of nesting accommodation, from a standard gouldian or budgie nesting box, to a wicker or Elongated Tube Box 

Lifespan: 7 years

Diet:  Goldfinch Seed Mix, Australian Blend GoldenfeastDried Egg FoodMineral Grit, Greens and some fruits

Beautiful, healthy birds!

I received my Red-faced parrot finch birds a few days ago. They are healthy and active. They seem to be adapting well to their new home. Within just a few hours they were singing! They arrived with extra electrolytes to add to their water, which of course, they took a bath in right away. I am very happy with the quality of the birds! I will admit to being more than a little nervous about buying online. Now, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Finch Farm. The birds are wonderful and the people I corresponded with are knowledgeable and caring. Please note that the arrival date generated by USPS is based on when the label was made, not when the birds were actually shipped, so I inadvertently spent an extra day waiting for them. They arrived early the next morning.

Red faced Parrot Finches

Birds are beautiful with an unexpectedly lovely song and fitting in well with a mix of other birds in my large outdoor aviary near Seattle.
