Yellow Faced Star Finch - Neochmia ruficauda

Yellow Faced Star Finch - Neochmia ruficauda
$180-$220 per pair.
Like several other Australian finches Star Finches tend to be winter breeders, when food is more
plentiful. The Red Faced Star Finch is the normal form of this finch, but it is now almost non existent in NZ aviaries! The yellow mutation is more readily available, but not common. The sexes are very similar with the head colour slightly more extensive in the male. Stars can be kept as single pairs or in a colony situation and they are fine in a mixed finch situation.
