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 TwoZero Aviary from Muntinlupa City, Philippines.

TwoZero Aviary currently focuses on breeding Masked LoveBirds and also breeds Opaline LoveBirds. Masked Lovebirds are also known as Black-Masked (Eye-Ring).

"The black masked lovebird (Agapornis personatus) is named after it’s facial coloring, which incidentally looks like a black mask, and is native to central and northern Tanzania although some flocks have been found in Kenya. They usually populate well in wooded grasslands and inland plateaus. First imported in the 1920's they have been bred in captivity and become very popular pet birds across America and Europe. Although numbers in the wild have decreased since they have become more readily imported, the black lovebird is not endangered. Breeding in captivity has led to some variations in color, such as the Fischer’s lovebird, and there are several other popular sub species of lovebird including the peach-faced lovebird." - birdcagesnow.com
