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.

Consider these points for your African LoveBirds Breeding Projects


1. Know what mutation you want to breed.

Do you want to produce Opaline LoveBirds? Euwing LoveBirds? New mutation?
Or any others reasons you may have for breeding African LoveBirds.

It is very important to know what mutation you want to breed because this will be your basis for getting your breeding pair.

Knowing what mutation you want to breed will keep you guided and focused on the end-results of your African LoveBirds Breeding project.

Else, without any end-result in mind for your African LoveBirds Breeding projects, you will end up with breeding whatever is available and will keep you distracted on whatever mutations come your way.

I am not saying it is a bad thing, but what I am saying is from a personal preference and point of view.

Having an end-result in mind requires me to do further research on the materials I will use for a particular African LoveBirds breeding project.

This way I am guided with the information I have when I start sourcing out for my African LoveBirds Breeding materials.

Sample Breeding Pair: OPALINE (c) x NON-OPALINE (h) 
PARENT: COCK IS OPALINE (DAD)
PARENT: HEN IS NON-OPALINE (MOM)
Offspring: All Sons are SPLIT-OPALINE
Offspring: All Daughters are OPALINE

2. Understand the characteristics of the mutation you want to produce.


African LoveBird mutations have different inheritance characteristics.

It is best to understand the inheritance patterns to help you identify what to use for your breeding pair in order to produce your targetted offspring. 

Verify the breeding charts to check what mutations you can use for your breeding pair.

There are a lot of possible pairing combinations that will give you possibly similar results.

This is where the inheritance pattern reference will be very useful for sourcing your breeding materials.

Have this pairing combinations handy to help you make an informed decision.

You can also easily adjust if the exact breeding pair you need is not available.

3. Get your African LoveBirds breeding pair from a reputable Breeder or well-known Aviary.

This may be more expensive, but you will be sure that you are getting good quality materials for your African LoveBirds breeding pair.

If you have budget constraints, ask around from Friends, Facebook Group, or from your local African LoveBirds club. They can recommend a good Breeder or Aviary.
