Male: The forehead, forecrown, face, throat, and breast are bright red. The body plumage is green. The rump and upper tail coverts including central tail feathers are red. The eyes are brown and the legs and feet are dark flesh color. This bird is monomorphic which makes sexing a challenge.
Female: The female's green/red plumage is duller and less luminous. She is slightly smaller than the male.
The Red-headed parrot finch is one of the most widely available of the parrot finches in captivity along with the Blue-Faced Parrot Finch. These two species are considered well established in aviculture. If fed a proper diet these parrot finches are unproblematic to breed and rear young. This was proven by Norman Nicholson in 1950, who bred this species through 18 generations in captivity. Red-Headed Parrot Finches nest in half-open nest boxes. They have chosen coconut fiber as the material of choice. Once nest construction has been completed egg-laying will commence.
Incubation: 13 to 14 days
