Olive-Blue Fronted Rainbow













The contrast to the normal colour Rainbow lorikeet is just stunning the mind.














This colour is what mutations is all about.
You never begin to think of this being a Rainbow lorikeet, so big is the transformation.


The Olive-Blue fronted Rainbow (grey - green melanistic) is a mutation of the Blue fronted and the Olive(grey green) Rainbow.














There are just two type of genetics in volved with this colour blend of one being a recesive colour gene and the second a dominant gene.


We first had the recesive melanistic colour name blue fronted and crossed that with a grey green colour to breed splits.






Blue fronted olive Rainbow.







Split birds, with one or more being grey green, produced the olive blue fronted Rainbow lorikeet.














This lovely bird is now safe in aviculture in low numbers.
