Albino Masked Lovebirds

Have you ever seen albino masked lovebirds? A variety of mutations exist. Similarly to Peach-faced Lovebirds there are light, dark, and olive green mutations as well as mauve, sky-blue and cobalt-blue mutations, some times in combination with pastel.

Lastly, there are also lutinos (yellow with red eyes) and albinos (white with red eyes).
These albino lovebirds are lively and active and make use of all areas of the aviary or cage. They love to bathe in water and their call can be very loud and piercing.

It is better not to try breeding these birds before they are one year old. A suitable nest box will have a surface area of 10 sq.inches (30 cm). They build a nest from all kinds of coarse materials. They will produce 3 or 4 eggs that the female will incubate for between approximately 18 and 20 days.

But it is not sure, an albino masked lovebirds will give birth to an young albino young one- It all depends on the probability of Genes...
