Congo African...Ino

Postby Rueae » Sat Dec 18, 2010 7:12 am

I just discovered some parrot mutations that blew my mind. Q^O
Has anyone here ever seen any of these mutations in the pet trade?

Incomplete Ino

Blue - Can be bought as a pet from a breeder in New York for $20,000.

Ino (There's too much discussion on whether this is lutino or albino for me, so I'm leaving it at ino. :T)


Someone gasp with me.

I've never seen any of the mutations in person, but I've seen plenty of pictures online.

I can't find very many pictures of them at all. Hm.
I've only found two of the ino. :T

I've never seen any of these mutations ,but they sure are cool looking. Have you seen the pics of the Red Factor CAG? Awesome mostly red and very rare, maybe some one can find a pic somewhere..

I have seen pictures of the all red and many heavily pied ones. I'm not really a fan of either.
Also, there is a white-ish congo in a mutation thread here somewhere too, but it looks more...blonde than anything. Not a great fan of that one either.
I guess I have a thing for white? :T

Here both are just for the sake of a complete thread:

I'm pretty sure there was a discussion about this a while back.

About the red congos? I've seen many discussions regarding them.
I'd never heard of the white ones before, though. Is there a topic here about them? I'd be happy if you could link it, if so. :3

Indeed. I saw a thread that was of mutation parrots. I'd like to think this one is different because it's about one species and really only the ino mutation. I'm looking for information and the thread I'm thinking about was really only to show pretty pictures of all the mutation parrots members could find or knew about. That said I don't recall seeing the ino congo in that thread anyway, just the blonde-ish one, which made me search for congo mutations and here we are.
I feel like we're getting off topic discussing the merits of the thread. :T

That said, I did learn something about the white tailed congos. Apparently, they are a blue mutation and I read that there is a breeder of blue congos somewhere in New York, but I've yet to find them. :T So mysterious.
