The reason you are seeing this white band on the front of
these birds' faces is because they are not pure masked
lovebirds. It looks like they have at least some (if not
more than 50%) fischer blood in them. Pure blue masked
lovebirds should have a completely BLACK face -- no white or
grey. Pure blue fischer lovebirds have a completely WHITE
face -- no black or grey, although the back of the head is
an ash grey color. When the two species are mixed, you get
some characteristics of each species. This is what your
birds look like.
