|One of the most exciting
aspects of keeping and breeding Love Birds is the large variety of
color mutations that have been established. At least 17 distinct
mutations have been established in the Peachfaced Love Bird, probably
more than in any other species of captive parrot except the budgerigar.

Bird mutations. Also visit the New ALBS Picture
Genetics for the Terrified by Chris Rutt gives beginners the basics of how color
mutations are inherited.
