Smile Blue Turquoise Parrotlet

I was wondering, does anyone have a blue turquoise parrotlet? It seems as if most people have a blue or green parrotlet. I'd love to see some pictures if you have any.

I remember seeing pics of at least one turquoise plet here, if you do a search in the forum you might find it. They're still pretty rare.

Oh, well I have one, but I was wondering if anyone else had one. I don't really know how rare they are. I knew they were rare, but not extremely rare...I know I had one picture of mine on one of my threads. Well, thanks for replying and if anyone does have one, I'd still like to see!!!!

I wouldn't call them rare, but it also depends on where you're located and what the breeders choose to breed. In my area there seems to be a lot of turquoises and dilute turquoises all over the place. Now I'm beginning to see a lot of different pieds, and more the blue pieds than the green pieds.

Oh right! I have a blue turquoise pied! So then, are pieds rare? And what about the other species? Sorry. I love learning about animals, especially parrotlets and dogs. Oh, I would love to see pictures of the different color pieds!

Well, there are 2 different kinds of pieds. The dominant and the recessive. Most of the ones out there are dominant pieds since it only takes one parent to be dominant pied for all the babies to be pied.

Indi is a dominant blue pied. A friend of mine has a turquoise and had a blue p'let. You really couldn't tell the difference between the two unless you really looked carefully. Most of the time, I confused the two in pictures.

Personally, I think pieds are interesting because their pied patterns are different between one bird and the next. Indi has a white triangle on the back her of head and a large white blotch on her belly. The rest of her clutch only had a small smattering of white areas on the back of their heads.

As for other species, if you're referring to other species of p'lets, the Pacific is really the only one with color mutations. I think there's a blue mutation green rumped, but I haven't seen any pictures of them.

That's so neat! I love all animals! But what I find most interesting are birds! They have amazing coloring and traits that make them stand out from other animals. Parrotlets are also a part of that too! The mutations and species are so interesting to see and learn about.
