one of my redpolls has a slight red breast haven't gave him any colour food so its all done naturally ( guessing hes the male) do they only have red breast in this time of year?

cock redpolls get there colour after the second moult if fed the correct diet or colour fed they have a red cap, red chest and rump. Hens get the red cap, the colour is there all the time not just for breeding season if the birds dont have any colour they have a dull gold colour to the cap hope this helps
