Colors - Mutations
Lineolated Parakeets, or Linnies as we like to call them, are friendly, non-destructive, quiet, attractive small birds.
The Lineolated Parakeet comes in differing colors (Mutations); Green (Normal or wild color), Dark Green, Turquoise, Cobalt, Mauve, Olive and Cremino. There is no blue in the Lineolated as a result there is no Albino. The genetics is simple recessive except for the Cremino which is sex linked.
