    I get a lot of violets from these parents and the parent's parents
    on both side and am awed by the colors and the personalities!
    I have an older male like this that have the same coloring, but his
    yellow patches changes to a taupe color and he never lost the gray
    on his tail.
    People in our area don't seem to care for lovebirds and call me
    asking if I have cockatiels and other birds. Then when they come to
    my house they fall in love with these little guys.

    Here's ANOTHER WEIRD COLOR. I have 2 olive red face and the blue on
    their tails is a seep navy blue.
