    Please don't ever use the word "expert" here or on any other
    board. We have a resident hag that gets her panties in a
    twist if anyone ever utters the word "expert." LOL

    The one thing about lovebird mutations that differs from most
    other species of birds is that mutation names are not used
    uniformly throughout the world. I mention this because
    Silver is one of the terms that is interchangable with
    American White or Edged Dilute.
    Are you able to post photos of these birds? It sometimes
    helps to see the actual bird and color it represents.
