WattaBird! Unlocking the Palette: Breeding African Lovebirds for Mesmerizing Mutations! Breeding African Lovebirds to create new mutations can be an exciting and rewarding endeavor for aviculturists. Here are some potential breeding combinations to produce new African Lovebird mutations: Lutino x Lutino: Breeding two lutino African Lovebirds can result in offspring with a higher chance of being lutino, which is a beautiful all-yellow mutation. Lutino x Pied: Crossing a lutino with a pied Lovebird can produce visually striking pied lutinos with patches of yellow and other colors. Turquoise x Blue: Pairing a turquoise Lovebird with a blue one can produce visually appealing turquoise blues, which have a combination of turquoise and blue feathers. Violet x Blue: Breeding a violet Lovebird with a blue Lovebird can result in visually striking violet blues, combining the violet and blue colorations. Opaline x Normal: Crossing an opaline Lovebird with a normal one can produce opaline offspring

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.
