Interesting and sorry for the mix-up. I have a yellow-sided matriarch, Loki, who actually does have a single yellow feather on the shoulder of each wing. I'll have to see if I can get a decent photo of her and some of my other gccs for comparison.I think from your picture he looks like a yellow-sided (the picture @SandraK posted is actually a yellow-sided - don't know why google has him on that page )
Here are some descriptions to help:
Cinnamon and Pineapple have tan heads and Yellow-sided and Wild-type have dark heads. I will post mine below so you can see.
- Cinnamon are lime green and have a lighter, almost pale color to the feathers. The head is tan and the tail feathers are a lighter maroon than in normal green-cheeked parrots.
- Yellow-sided have a breast of bright colors and, rarely, have a bright yellow feather on each side of the upper wing. This is a rare genetic occurrence of which only one hatchling in approximately 10 clutches can be found to have. This appearance can increase their value.
- Pineapple is cinnamon and yellow-sided combination. They have a breast of bright colors, a tan head and lime green feathers on the back like a cinnamon green-cheeked parrot. The tail feathers are the same as a yellow-sided, showing a halo effect.
- Turquoise have a body with some blue-green and green feathers. The breast feathers are grayish and the tail feathers are gray.
Wow - then Loki is one of the rare 1 in 10!Interesting and sorry for the mix-up. I have a yellow-sided matriarch, Loki, who actually does have a single yellow feather on the shoulder of each wing. I'll have to see if I can get a decent photo of her and some of my other gccs for comparison.
My present count is 17 gccs and these photos were taken before they came to that count -Bird looks most like the one on the right. (My right. The one with the dark head) but has a bit more yellow than red.
Btw...3 conures!!!??? I can barely keep our lives sane and we have one. And from what I am hearing, Bird seems low maintance.
I don't know how any mulptiple bird owners do it.
