Karen, are you keeping yours? It does look like a beautiful miniature
dove. I don't remember--where do you live?
I don't know that I can accurately describe dilute, other than it is
recognized by a lighter wash over the entire bird, a subdued
coloration. Like a fallow, but with dark eyes, as the fallows have red
eyes. Maybe someone else can help out with this one? I know it's been
referred to as "yellow" or "silver" mutations.. ????? Aren't lovebird
By the way--your little pied is a cutie, too!
