Gold Breasted Waxbill
(Amandava subflava)

The Gold or Orange Breasted Waxbill (Amandava subflava) is widespread in equatorial Africa where it is found in both marshland and the dry savannas. This fairly easy to breed finch is the smallest finch in our aviaries, with hens often measuring under 3 inches.

A diet of small millets and the heads of seeding grasses will keep these birds in good health. When breeding tiny livefood is essential, the chicks will also be fed eggfood, green seeds and spouted seeds.
