WattaBird! Unlocking the Palette: Breeding African Lovebirds for Mesmerizing Mutations!

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 featured African LoveBirds Breeder for this week is Jun Aviary from Cabuyao, Laguna, Philippines.

Jun Aviary specializes in breeding Opaline LoveBirds

"Opaline is a mutation which was discovered in 1997. The opaline mutation first appeared in peach-face lovebirds bred by Becky Anderson of the Royal Rose Aviary in Upper Michigan in January, 1997. The opaline mutation changes where the colors are located on the birds in a predictable but new pattern. The opaline mutation is sex linked. As a result, hens with opaline genes will always show the pattern (they are termed "visuals"). Males require two copies of the gene to be visuals, so there are far fewer of them. We have noticed subtle differences in males with only one copy of the gene ("splits") that sometimes allow a breeder to tell the difference between a split male and one that has no opaline gene at all." - theropod aviary
