 Blue Mutation Eclectus (cock)

Like the normal Eclectus, the blue mutation is sexually dimorphic, which means the male and female are so different in coloration that taxonomists originally mistook them for separate species! Notice how healthy the bird is.  You can tell by the talons and feather condition.  Our European breeders raise all their birds in an outdoor aviary.  They are much healthier and thus more likely to breed.

These birds are quite rare and hard to find.  They are often sold as splits.
