    Micheal to be totally honest i wasn't attracted to lovebirds this
    was totally unexpected (part of the reason im at such a loss with
    the mutations)normally before i start any endevor i study up on
    all i need to know. These pairs came in a trade to one of my
    parrotlet breeder friends,he took them in trade and then needed
    the room right away as he had 90 more parrotlets coming in!
    I originally only wanted a qouple pair but he said if i took all
    of them he would give me a good deal after i had just a few days
    i really took to them,the colors,personalitys everything so thats
    how it all started with them i guess im hooked now. Tim
