    Just wanted to share a picture of a very unusual looking peachface lovebird. He is blue series, white faced dark factored silver, split to australian cinnamon. I just think he is STUNNING and will be even more beautiful when his mask comes in white and his beak turns pale pink! Ta da!!!!

    yes, he is homegrown. His father is a White Faced Australian Cinnamon, (which is why I know the baby is a he) and the mother is a pied Whitefaced violet with a dark factor. I didn't know either parent was split to silve until this one came along.

    The bird in the upper left is the father. The one below the WF lutino, the dark grey/blue one with the yellow on the shoulder is the mother.
