Misty’s Baby is a Dilute Blue Parrotlet

Awww.  Misty’s chick has turned out to be a little snow princess.  She is the most adorable little Dilute Blue (American White) parrotlet.  She is of the normal variety.  Her sister from the last clutch was a normal dilute blue as well but she was of the Lucida subspecies so her sister looks a lot like a male but is in fact a Dilute Blue Lucida.

This little princess is already spoiled and very inquisitive.  She spends her days hanging out in the front of my shirt (a nice warm spot for her).  She is very white with just the palest blue wash over her wings.  I am sure as her pins open she will have this wash on other areas as well.  Her flight feathers are bright white.

She is a good eater and chirps periodically.  She lets me scritch her little neck and is very curious about everything around her.

My Beautiful Turquoise Parrotlet Boys

Turquoise Lucida Male Parrotlet Fletcher 2

Here are some great photos of my sweet boys, Sidney a turquoise pastel (dilute), and Fletcher, a turquoise.  They are so cute.  The camera just doesn’t do justice to Sidney’s rainbow of colors.

Fletcher – Beautiful Turquoise Male

I think Fletcher may be a lucida male as the blue eye streaks wrap around his head and he has a very deep violet cobalt rump.

 Sidney is a good boy and loves me.  Fletcher tends to be very shy.  I am not sure why since I hand fed him from a very young baby and he got lots of loves and attention.

Even though Fletcher is shy (see him hiding under Sidney?), He is still a very sweet bird.  Doesn’t bite, he is just a bit skittish.
