    Baby lovebirds

    Thought I would share my recent arrivals. These guys are 3 days old.

    Interestingly, one clearly has different genetics. The parents are both normal green, Orangeface lovebirds. I've bred this combination before and ended up with a Par-Blue lovebird. Would love to get a genetics expert opinion on this as it could either be another Par-Blue mutation or even a Dutch Blue...

    Too early to tell. Unless you know what mutation the grandparents have. There are 2 green chicks and one blue. In a few weeks you will know if it's turquoise, aqua or aqua-turquiose.

    If both parents are green, I dont believe you can achieve a Turquoise lovebird....

    Yes they can have turquoise offspring! Both parents need to have the turquoise mutation. But you need the mutation on both genes to get a turquoise bird. If they have it on only one gene, they will be green, but they can give the turquoise mutation to the offspring. If both parents have the turquoise mutation, there's a 25% chance to get turquoise chicks.

    I hope it's clear for you now.
