I think to reinforce the whole subspecies thing..I talk a lot with Kacy about Mali and Léa.
Both are of distinct subspecies - Mali being a brown necked parrot and Léa a grey headed parrot. And yet, they are very very very similar. Some differences, yes, but key things, it's like they are sisters.

Actually, if I remember right, Itsy might very well be Zuri's sister. And both birds have differences in temperament
Oh I didn't know they might be brother and sister!

I *think* they are from the same breeder and I think she only had the one pair of Meyer's.

Yes, they do seem very similar!! I don't think there is all that much difference to them, besides very slightly, their looks.
