Breeding Notes: 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. The Red-Headed Parrot Finch will thrive in captivity with a good quality finch mix, both dry and soaked. Greens and some fruits (oranges, apples, figs) are readily accepted. Live food is provided to my stock while young are being reared. 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. My 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.
