Post: Color of baby
Posted by Jen on 6/06/07
I have a baby lovebird who's coloration i'd like to ask about.
Parents are a creamino hen and a seagreen split to opaline
cock. The baby I have currently has bright blue tail
feathers coming in, very vibrant green feathers on the wing,
with very dark flights, his head however is a much lighter
olive green color with yellow feathers coming in on his
forehead. I haven't been able to find any pictures that look
close to what I have. (He's still not 100% feathered, and I
know with molts they change slightly at first, but still
wondering.) All the pics I can find of lovebirds with yellow
foreheads (instead of red or peach) are of pieds, and he's
definately not a pied... any input greatly appreciated!!
