Parrotlet mutation, sex and age - with pictures
Posted 01 February 2012 - 05:16 AM
I am hoping someone can help me with the mutation of my parrotlet. The closest pictures I can find on the internet indicate she may be a normal turquoise but would like opinions.
Also sex... no blue on the wings. Slight blue near the eyes but seems normal for a turquoise if that is what she is and some blue on her tail. From what I can tell she has grey downy like feathers under her wings.
Also - and I dont know if you can tell- age. I think she is fairly young but seems to have down feathers and has iris on her eyes.
As you can tell I am new at this- I can say she is super cute and we love her tons!! Also can't figure out a name- if you have a suggestion it is welcome:)

I know it can be hard to visually sex parrotlets if you either have a hybrid or a non-pacific/celestial parrotlet. What you have guessed sounds correct to me, in my lack of knowledge.

She doesn't have the blue on the wings and because she is turquoise she has slight blue by her eye but enough... I thought she was a girl but needed confirmation:)
And I meant to type : other forum ... Auto correct:)
