parrotlet question

I have a dilute turquoise parrotlet. Which breed are they? I can’t find much on line about them. Thank you.


Hi Edward,

What you have is a color mutation of a species of Parrotlet. There are several species of parrotlets that are common in captivity and have been bred to get different color mutations. You would have to ask the breeder or bird shop which species you have. But in general information on any parrotlet would apply to your bird.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
