Violet Factor & Whitefaced Violet

There are great variations in the body color from one violet to another. It is the violet rump that shows the bird carries violet factor. Whiteface also can vary from a deep apricot band across the forehead to pure white mask. The hen below also has dark factors, giving her overall body a beautiful blueberry hue.

Pied violet is my favorite color variety of peachfaced lovebirds (from a whiteface violet cock and pied slate hen):

What a gorgeous kid in the above photo! The whiteface pied violet above is particularly beautiful, almost “clear” with very few pied markings on the back. The yellow with the violet undertones is incredible and will become more vibrant when the baby reaches full maturity in about 9 months. Here is a front shot of a very clear pied:
