Animal Stories - Strawberry Finch

Animal-World Information about: Strawberry Finch

  Strawberry Finches, also known as the Red Avadavat, are perhaps the most popular of all the waxbills! The word "strawberry" suits these little birds because of the beautiful, strawberry like coloration of the male during breeding season.

    You are probably in molting season right now and all their feathers are chaging out for new ones. The males sometimes will fade with age. It is also said that males can turn a lighter color without sunlight. You could try a UV light in the room or area. If you are asking about color foods/drops etc, that is for canaries - I haven't ever heard of it for finches.

    We are in south africa, we can help to import them to us, we have the contacts here. You must just get a vet to sign them of after being in quarantine. They are a high demand here because they are very scarce.

    I don't think that encouraging the catching of wild birds is appropriate, lisa.
    Birds that were common very recently are becoming endangered due to uncontrolled trapping for the cagebird trade.
    I think you should try to find a reputable supplier with captive-bred birds and if that is impossible you may have to try a different species.
    There are other beautiful small birds with charming personalities that are not threatened by lack of control from authorities.

I have been searching for a (young)pair of strawberry finches with absolutely no results. Can anyone steer me in the right direction, please?

I have a lovely little female. She has become so accustomed to me that she dances on the perch or side of cage closest to me and sings. I would love to find her a male.

Hi, I'm from Pakistan. There you can see, in fields, a lot of redberry finches in Pakistan. The prey man sells them to shops. I have two pairs. Even though I have succeeded to breed them in my avairy room, I got eggs by the cross of a female berry finch with a male society finch. But when the chick came out, no one would feed it. After three days I founded it dead.
