    I know he's a pied, but when I looked closer at his eyes, they were a brownish red? I'm so very confused.

    They really butchered his wings, but the tiny bit of flight feather he has left is black and white.

    Obligatory glamor shot of mister T. Rex;

    You should hear his contact screams. :dead: He's not so cute when he opens his beak and screams like a conure.

    I'll have to get vids of him screaming. I wouldn't believe it myself if I hadn't heard him screaming myself. He's really got a set of pipes!

    I am sorry, but I am not great with black masked lovebird mutations, however @Anfsurfer is.

    T. Rex's original family had conures. It's why they couldn't keep him. Little guy took on a fully grown sun.

    It’s really hard to say if he’s any mutation other than Dominant Pied. If he has odd flights (some black, some white), then he’s definitely Dom.Pied.
    Whether he’s any other patterned mutation I can’t see it from the pics. The lighting isn’t all that good and his flights are butchered like you said.

    “Mauve” was a nickname given to the mutation DD Parblue, which your bird is not. Somewhere along the line people started calling DD Blue Mauve also, which your bird is. Originally DD Blue was nicknamed Slate. Confusing. Anyways, that’s why I keep trying to get people off the nicknames on this forum, but it never works.

    “DD Blue Dominant Pied” is wheat I’d say your bird is from what you’ve said, and what I can see.

    @Anfsurfer he has a few short bits of flights here and there. From what I could make out on the longer bits, they were primarily white towards the base, with the longer remnants showing some uneven black coloration.

    I wish I could get his eyes to show their proper colors, though. They're not quite albino red, but they're a nice brownish red.

    He even has a bit of a paler spot right on top of his head, which I thought was neat.

    @Anfsurfer I may have been mistaken about his wings.

    Either way, it's a crying shame. :no: His flights look like they were so pretty.

    I actually don’t even see a black flight like you said...
    He could be Pastel or SF Dominant Edged instead of Pied. Or he still could be Pied? It’s really hard to tell with his coloring and the lack of flights. If he’s over 8 months old he may be a fisher/Blackmasked hybrid. He has a lighter band across his beak which is possible for a Blackmasked baby, but if it doesn’t fill in after juvenile molt then most likely a hybrid.

    I think I might have mistaken a body feather for a primary. He wouldn't let me get a good look until yesterday.

    And he's still very much a baby, he's only around six months old, according to what I was told. The tip of his beak is still yellow-ish, so I think he's not quite 8 months yet.
