Waiting List, Coloring of Blue Mutation Parrotlets

Hi there! My name is Yael and i would love to purchase a parrotlet
from u. I am looking for an affectionate, sweet, friendly and social
parrotlet preferably in the powder blue color or turquoise. Please
feel free to email me back any time. Thanks a lot!

Dear Yael:

Thank you for your email. I always have a waiting list and currently it is at least 4 months long. While I breed blues, I do not breed turquoise. Also, you should know that the blue color mutation has a huge variety of color tones ranging from light powder blue to teal to deep blue, however they are all the same mutation. I always tell people blue is like blond hair in people. There are honey blonds, platinum blonds, ash blonds, strawberry blonds, etc., but they are all blond. Same with the blues. Also, the color a bird is when it feathers out is not necessarily the color it will be when it is an adult since plumage often changes as the birds age and molt. Finally, females have a more clean coloration when it comes to mutations than males. Males often have gray or slate coloring to them especially in the blues because the amount of melanin that males have in the normal coloration. Whether you get a bird from me or not you should know this so you will not be disappointed if the color changes as it matures.

I do not take deposits and work on a first-come, first-served basis. Let me know if you would like your name placed on my reservation list.

Thank you so much!

Sincerely yours,
