Cordon Bleu Bird Breed

Breed Information

Cordon Bleu

Also from Africa is a very pretty waxbill, the Cordon Bleu (Uraeginthus bengalus). It is about four inches long. The brownish upper parts go unnoticed because all one can see are the sky-blue of the cheeks, neck, and breast. The male has a curious large crimson gash over each ear, so sexing is simple. Cordons breed well in a planted aviary.

The Cordon is a perfectly peaceful species. Rarely are they seen in fights. They mix well with all small finches and other waxbills, sharing with the others the desire to squeeze as many birds onto a perch or into a nestbox as possible.

The Cordon Bleu thrives on a regular finch mixture and adjusts well to cage life.
