    I'm not sure what kind of bird your friend is talking about,
    but there is no such mutation as "limey" in lovebirds, unless
    the bird is british =D. It's always hard to say without seeing
    the bird. If you have pictures that would help. But, from
    what you're describing your bird should be either an American
    Cinnamon or an Australian Cinnamon. The difference lies in the
    degree of lime color. I have pictures of both I will post for
    you for comparison. They call them cinnamons because of the
    grey/brown flight feathers.

    The darker green one on the right is an American Cinnamon. The
    picture makes her look a little bit darker than she really is,
    but she is a dark lime green color with dark cinnamon colored
