Ok i get it now. I think lol

The Pacific Parrotlet has different mutations.

The other parrotlet species do not.

All the different kinds of parrotlets listed are different species, and if they can interbreed, it would cause a hybrid (because they are different species).

Thanks for clarifying, Reta!

Some co-workers of mine met Jinx and decided that they wanted to be owned by a parrotlet too. There are new color mutations out. One of them have a very cute pied parrotlet (green with yellow/white here and there) and another just got a turquoise. I've also found out that there are dark factor colored ones out there too though they are not currently being released by the breeder. If I ever get another parrotlet, I think I would like a dark factor blue one, they're gorgeous!

So many of the pieds and fallows are mostly gray! And the dark factor I was imaging as a dark blue and they are brown! Not so pretty to my eye as the colors we have.

The regular dark factor is a olive green and reminds me of mud. But if bred with a blue, supposedly the babies can be a dark blue.

This is the only pic I know of the dark factor blue: http://www.birdbreeders.com/breederphotos.aspx?b=2920

Only this breeder has them and he's not selling until he has multiple generations available.

Caraliz, you are correct - Zach is a blue mutation Pacific with enough Lucida influence to notice the grey wash over his body
