    Yes I'm keeping the little dovie. I live in eastern Missouri.

    Oh yes, lovebird mutations are fun. Some day I may even be able to identify
    more than 3 or 4 correctly. LOL I have pied, dutch blue, olive, blue series
    Australian cinnamon, lutino and creamino down pat. Only 30 or 40 more color
    mutations to go. . . ahahahahaha

    I have a friend who always calls Dutch blue birds dilute, that's why I was
    asking if dilute was Dutch blue.

    Yes that pied is a darling. I have another bird that is going to be a lime
    green color with an orange face. I have no idea what that mutation is
    called. It's a cinnamon too because it has cinnamon flights.
