    Talking a color mutation question (w/ pics)...

    I am getting 6 breeding lovebird pairs sunday ( I wasn't exactly wanting to go into breeding to that extent but...) from a breeder who has hit very hard times and has to give up all her birds because she cannot afford to care for them and also doesn't have time they need (I got all 6 because she didn't want to split her group up and I'm too much of a softie-I love my little lovie, Guac, so much he's spoiled rotten LOL). I have photos of 4 of the pairs (the other 2 pairs wouldn't cooperate for good photos) and I'm wondering what color mutations they are, just because it bugs me not knowing I'm going to put the pics up in link format because they are BIG photos (which helps with the color id, yet I don't want to bog down anyone using a slower connection). I have tried to research what colors these may be, but I can't make head or tails of all the colors and complex genetics. So, any ideas ?

    pair 2: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...er/lbpair4.jpg (my favorite pair, color-wise)

    I enjoy guessing the mutations as it seems to help me learn. Please don't take my guesses as fact.

    Pair 1: Cobalt Dilute/Ino Masked (personata) and Cobalt Dilute Masked (personata)
    Pair 2:
    Pair 3:
    Pair 4: ??? and Normal green Peachfaced

    Dangit, I'm having a ton of trouble with those. I am terrible at lovies. I really love the first pair though.

    Rachel, what did you think of the first? Or are you just familiar with the roseicullis?

    Re: a color mutation question (w/ pics)...

    thank you all so much...now you see why I couldn't say no to these sweeties. The breeder took these photos, I will have much better shots of them all once they are in my home I just hope they don't stress too badly on the way home (thankfully just a hour long car ride, no shipping craziness). I really hope some of these guesses are right on the colors. I was really looking for a dutch blue or a seafoam...and the creminos are so elegant looking as well <3 I can't wait to have these lovies in my home so I can spoil them LOL
