You can see a faintly gray ring in bright light, but it usually looks black. Is...

    Personatus or Fischeri?

    Hi, I bought these beauties yesterday and the guy said that these are masked (personatus) lovebirds. I'm confused! Are these 'yellow colour ones' masked (personatus) or Fischeri? Can someone identify them? Maybe these are dilute/ pied lutino masked lovebirds?

    Pyrrhura chimera

    Got a load of young greencheeks and noticed this one was different. It looks like a bizarre mix between the yellow sided and the pineapple high red mutations. Thoughts?

    Does the ability to whistle relate to mutation?

    As per my other posts, i am getting a baby male pied cockatiel. Does it matter about the mutation with their ability to whistle? For example, at the place they have a cage with a few adult cockatiels and the normal grays seem to whistle while the Lutinos are super quiet. Thanks.
