Size: 4"

Life Span: 4 years

Sexing: Mono-morphic (visually hard to determine sex)

Temperament: Rosy-rumped Waxbills do best in a large planted aviary with mixed species

Breeding: Rosy-rumped Waxbills are considered harder to breed than the more common Red-ear and St. Helena Waxbills. A large planted same species aviary with low bushes and shrubs will help trigger a breeding response. A globe shaped nest made of grasses or moss works best. Rosey-rumps normally build their nest in low bushes, so place handmade nest in low concealed spots with in the bush and a few up higher.

DNA Testing

If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info.
