Product Description

Description: The black-bellied firefinch (Lagonosticta rara) is a common species of estrildid finch found in Africa. The Black Bellied Firefinch has a bold red color with a black underbelly. It is slightly larger than the Red Billed Firefinch. Fire finches come from mostly arid regions, so damp conditions should be avoided. Sand is the preferred ground cover for aviaries. They prefer bright and sunny conditions but should always have access to water and shade. All species of fire finch spend a lot of time on or near the ground and like stones or very low perches that keep them off the cage bottom. Fire finches are not aggressive birds and can be mixed safely with other species but breeding results are usually better when they are housed in small groups or as single pairs. Various species of fire finch can be housed together without aggression, but hybridizing can happen so just one species per enclosure is ideal.
