DNA Testing 

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.

Temperament: These interesting birds are active, vivacious, but may become sluggish if housed in a smaller enclosure. Please keep in mind they prefer to live in groups of like species. Bronze-Winged Mannikins tend to be generally gregarious, however males may become aggressive toward each other and other species during the breeding season. 

Breeding: Breeding is restricted to the warm (rainy/wet) season, but may occur year-round near the equator. For best results, keep a group (at least 3 pairs and with equal numbers of cocks and hens) of these birds together to allow the birds to choose their own partners. Birds aged 1 to 4 years are best suited to breeding.

Diet: Classic Finch Seed, Dried Egg Food, Mineral Grit, Cuttlefish Bone
