    Red face Lovebird coloration help?

    So I've had a conure in the past but never a Lovebird so this is all new to me :3
    The place I bought Chaos from told me he was 6 months old and that is all they knew (Im not even sure if that his age is true). He was in a cage with two other peach-faced lovebirds who were bonded. He doesn't look like a peach-faced but more like a Fischers to me? I always thought peaches were pretty pastel coloured like the two he was with.
    Anyway I've been doing loads of research and reading about Lovebirds and Chaos is taming up nicely (I am quite sure he was parent-raised) and he is learning to step-up quickly and that hands aren't as evil as they seem and give nice cheek rubs :3. He is pretty relaxed now and lies to sit on my shoulder while I study or move around. I gave him a partial clip so whilst taming he couldn't fly around the house and hurt himself but he can still fly from my shoulder to his cage and to my bed to do some exploring.
    He was on a bad diet at the petshop and he is obsessed with millet and won't eat anything else. I have been trying to get him to eat other things but he just picks out everything apart from millet and throws it on the floor of his cage. He liked apple and fresh vegetables though so at least he is not just eating one thing :/. I have him a seed bell as well which he enjoyed ripping apart and not eating haha. He also likes to shred paper up.

    I'm not even sure that he is in fact a 'he'. If anyone could tell me their ideas about him and give me some feeding advice as his feathers look so dull and he can't be getting all the nutrition he needs! D:, that would be most appreciated!

    I'll get some more pictures up later that aren't blurry as he is a bit fast for my phone :P

    He/she is a hybrid. Cross between a peachfaced and a masked.

    Oh I feel sorry for him now
    So no wonder he is a bit dull anyway.
