Xtreem Parrotlets have been breeding the turquoise bird 15 years out of our 23 years of our breeding program. The genetics of this bird are simple but yet complexed. You will not find the turquoise Parrotlet in the wilds. This was a bird that was created in captivity by two geneticists approximately 20 years ago. Using genetics and a couple of years of selective breeding. They then created the full turquoise Parrotlet. When we purchased our first two pairs they were Xtreemly rare and very expensive. The gene in the turquoise Parrotlet has been manipulated through genetics to be an incomplete blue gene giving us various shades of turquoise.

Through the years we now have several versions of the turquoise Parrotlet. We have what we call the turquoise green head. Which is a green turquoise, the back feathers are a beautiful deep turquoise green and the face and the head is a deep rich Royal green with just a shimmer of turquoise. It can take up to 4 to 5 months the turquoise green head Parrotlet to color up to this outstanding green turquoise. Xtreem Parrotlets also breed this type, it is called the original turquoise green head and is hard to find. We have not seen any other breeders with this bird. It also goes to prove that the blue gene which is incomplete to make the color turquoise can vary from not just 50% but it can be up to 35%, 45%, 60% and anywhere in between these numbers to give us different shades of turquoise. Giving us several different types and shades of turquoise parrotlets.
The Turquoise Fallow Parrotlet
This rare Parrotlet has the added gene called the fallow gene. The fallow gene further manipulates the color of the plumage on the turquoise Parrotlet. Also giving it red eyes or red ruby eyes and clear nails. They are absolutely beautiful in appearance. In the video above we contrast the difference between the blue turquoise and the fallow turquoise is an excellent video and a resource of information to literally show you the difference between the fallow version and the non-fallow version.
