What kind is she?

Is it a Fischers?

So I drove 2.5 hours to pick up a supposed Fischers hen. With the lack of an eye ring, I'm now doubting it. She seems too small to be a peach face, though. Also, I didn't think Creamino's had violet on their rump? Thoughts?

If your going to continue to breed...you may want to research breeders that wont lie to you. Ill be honest you seem very unknowledgble to be breeding. Lots more research before you continue would probably be best. Esp since I see some of your babies died.

Definitely a peach faced. You do know you should not breed Fischer's with Peach faced. Copied and pasted from: Lovebirds | Parrot Parrot

Fischer’s lovebirds and Masked lovebirds are DIFFERENT species of lovebirds (Agapornis personata fischeri and Agapornis personata personata, respectively) and should not be bred with peachfaced (A. roseicollis) lovebirds. Inter-species breeding sometimes results in mules (that is, lovebirds that cannot reproduce), but when it doesn’t, the consequence is pollution of the pure gene pool for these various


Albino and Lutino Fischer's Lovebirds Tundra and Tequila

species of lovebirds. Responsible breeders do not inter-breed different species, especially since we can no longer import new, fresh stock from the wild! And frankly I’ve seen some of these crossed-species lovebirds and they often are very strange creatures. They tend to have very skittish personalities (the most terrified lovebirds I’ve ever encountered were a cross between a peachface and a Fischer’s–ALL the lovebird babies were excessively nervous). If, out of ignorance, you paired up different species of lovebirds, it is very possible to re-pair them properly. Just get them out of ear-shot of each other and find them new mates. I’ve even re-paired lovebirds who could hear each other (for color mutation purposes) and it worked out great for all four lovebirds. Please note that color mutations occur WITHIN the same species of lovebirds and it is not necessary to interbreed species to get these new colors.

She is a blue series Australian cinnamon peach faced lovebird. I am unsure which blue series mutation she is as the Australian cinnamon makes it more difficult to tell.

Right. If she's a peach face, I won't breed her to a Fischers. @Happynme, I have been raising and breeding birds for about 15 years. Exotic pheasants, cage birds, you name it, just not Lovebirds. My current pair of Fischers are first time parents, so they're bound to make mistakes. I appreciate your concern.

Sounds like I'll need to find another mate for one of my babies, plus a peach face mate for the new gal. Lol. Great!

Hey my internet won't load the pic but it is a blue series pallid either a double factor or it has violet factor but i can only see the tiny pic. I see every one is calling it an Australian cinnamon this is incorrect and for what ever reason it is still getting called that. The reason it is called a pallid and not a cinnamon is because research was done on this particular mutation showing that it is not a cinnamon at all. As for the comment of babies dying that is a little harsh i am a breeder i have six pairs breeding now its apat of nature not all chicks survive it will happen to anyone and that doesn't make them a bad or inexperienced breeder. I can openly say that i have chicks die occasionally and so do every other breeder but i do my very best to make sure every one has the best chance of surviving.

Interesting, I believe you are correct. I'm very interested in lovebird mutations even If I don't breed. The feathers are different so it would most likely be called something else, like you have written. Is a pallid similar to a pied or are they the same thing?

I also think anyone breeding should vaccinate against and test for disease as well.

She looks like a peachie to me in the face, She is very pretty and I hope you find a good peachie to breed her with.
