WattaBird Gallery! Pied Factor African LoveBirds

The Pied LoveBirds are one of the most popular mutations. This factor produces an irregular lack of melanin, which causes the bird to have irregular pieds. Simply put, these birds have color patterns depending on color concentration and the characteristics manifest differently.

The Pied Factor causes a dilution of the ground color and gives a snowy shading to the rose-pink color or the forehead and throat.

Pieds are very strong birds and can be used to increase the genetic vigor of other mutations through combinations.

Young Pieds can already be easily identified while still in the nest. The first growth in the feather follicles will already give an overall pied look to the skin. The beak on the other hand is either white or light golden-yellow or light yellow brown color, which has barely a trace of black on the base.
