Re: Lovebird Mutation??
Posted by Peggy on 4/30/06
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.
