Mutation of Peach Faced Lovebirds

There are great many mutations of this species. In fact, the mutations are so popular that is difficult finding a bird with purely natural plumage.

One of the most recent and also very colorful and attractive color mutations is the orange head variety. There are also light, dark, olive, and (light and dark) sea green colored birds, often in combination with white mask, cinnamon or isabel characterisitics.

Lastly there are also (light) yellow birds with dark eyes, lutinos (yellow with red eyes) and pied birds.

Hi, I was just wondering what kind of mutation the bird on the left was? I have a lovebird that looks very much like it and just have not been able to find what kind of mutation it is.
I was also wondering if you would know what colour babies would be produced from a bird of the colour in question and a lutino?
Any info would be great.

Hi Jayne, May be its too late for this reply........anyways, the bird in question is called Pied & to achieve the best results you have to use pied only. Or else dominant Pied male with any other mutation but certainly not lutino!!!! You will get all the Pied females out of this clutch !!!
Hope it helps
