African Red Headed Finch

Afrian Red Head Pair

Name: African Red Head (Amandina erythrocephala)

Origin: Africa

Habitat: Open desert grasslands, semi-arid and arid shrublands, arid savanna, croplands and farmyards.

Sexing: Easy. Males have the red colored head throughout their entire adult life.

Breeding: Moderate

Social: The Red-headed Finch may be bred as single pairs or colony of three or more pairs. They are large finches and may not mix well in smaller species unless housed in a very large aviary.

Housing: Aviary or Large flight only.

Diet: A basic dry seed mix, grit mix and clean fresh water at all times. Fresh greens are a plus and provide extra protein during the breeding season. I use Bevos Bug Mix.
