What Are Dilute Turquoise Parrotlets?
The dilute turquoise parrotlets only come about when a Blue Turquoise parrotlet and American Yellow parrotlet female mate. The offspring of this paring will produce an occasional American Yellow Split to Turquoise parrotlet. This offspring must be female and when old enough to breed, must be paired with an American White Male. Thus producing the Dilute Turquoise. This is why they are so rarely seen in nature and are most commonly found in captivity.
The dilute turquoise has come a long way in the past 15 years. The correct name for the dilute turquoise Parrotlet is the white turquoise Parrotlet. Various groups and organizations and some breeders have downgraded the name of such a beautiful bird. Xtreem parrotlets prefer the correct name of white turquoise Parrotlet what do to the Parrotlet community and their belief that it should be downgraded to dilute turquoise for the sake of our clients we will refer the bird to dilute turquoise. The dilute turquoise has come far in its breeding. We will now discuss the different shades of the dilute. Xtreem has discovered the genetic breakdown and the genetic snapping when this bird is mating. You will notice most dilute turquoise or yellow and white. And some are seafoam green, the three main genes that this bird or yellow turquoise and blue. When the female is fertilized the turquoise gene can snap that will give you your seafoam green color or shade, the seafoam green name of the dilute turquoise was given by yours truly Billy XTREEM. Some of the breeders around the world that we sometimes export our parrotlets to may not agree with the name that I have given this beautiful mutation. But the fact of the matter is I do my homework in color and the meaning of color and the origin of color and how color was made in the sub colors play a role in why I name this dilute Parrotlet seafoam green. The fact is the color is seafoam green and the name has caught on well throughout the United States and also in some of the countries we export our parrotlets to. The other color in the dilute turquoise is yellow sometimes washed with white. This is caused by the yellow gene snapping and you will get a yellow dilute turquoise. This is a very unique Parrotlet whether you have a yellow dilute turquoise or a seafoam green turquoise they both have the capability of giving you both colors in the same clutch. Once in a great while the blue gene which remains dormant, can snap and what you will get is a dilute blue or white with no yellow or seafoam green color in the plumage. It’s truly an amazing Parrotlet.
Breeding The Dilute Turquoise Parrotlet
The dilute turquoise is a fantastic Parrotlet to breed. You can pair it with most any other Parrotlet color mutation. We have made some of the rarest and most beautiful dilute turquoise Parrotlets you will ever see. Several years ago Billy XTREEM using our breeding by design method created some of the first dilute turquoise pied, back then I only knew of only one other advanced breeder that had the new mutation. Between the two of us existed only seven of what we called back then the white fallow pied Mutation. Those were exciting days my friends, but I was not satisfied after six or seven months. The master breeder of Xtreem Parrotlets yours truly, envisioned the new dilute turquoise pied and said if I can figure out how to genetically create red eyes in this rare mutation by adding the fallow gene. After consulting my inner circle of top breeders located in China and one here in the United States they laughed, said it was a fantastic vision but too many generations and a lot of time and patience but I had to have yet another new mutation. So my work went on and on and on. Finally, Billy XTREEM received his breakthrough. Finally after two years the white turquoise, known today as the dilute turquoise was forever changed. We finally achieved the goal, the dream, and the vision. We had a new mutation properly called white turquoise fallow pied mutation. Again those were exciting times. Now after several years, they are commonplace. Now that these goals have been realized I feel that they are an integral part of any breeding program. Now you can create your own vision and dreams and the excitement of creating a new mutation or at least the thrill of trying. We have paired these birds up with turquoise pied, blue pied, green pied and came up with some beautiful new color mutations. Of course, it goes without saying you must pair the dilute turquoise fallow pied with a Parrotlet that is split to fallow and yellow or cinnamon and most any other color. But it must be split to fallow or you will receive no fallow birds. We have had great success in breeding the dilute turquoise Parrotlet and also selling. We have a waiting list for our dilute turquoise fallow pied, also the dilute turquoise split to fallow from many of our clients across the country.
