Food

Estrildis are seadeaters. Grass seeds, other little seeds, reed seeds, rice, and so on. Only Nigrita and Parmoptila species are insect eaters.
These birds  in captivity should become about 7 grams seed and 1 gram egg food daily. One or two mealworms or some like that  is enough. Only if they have young, you should give plenty of it.
