rainbow lorikeet mutations

some of these colour variations become locally avialable. from the musk are missing in this hybrid proving that there are separate genes During my recent trip to Northern Territory I found it to be by far the most commonly seen psittacine, and upon reflection possibly the most numerous bird observed on the trip. The plumage can vary from almost complete green over the underlying yellow, through light green to The image below left shows a hybrid olive Scaly/Rainbow lorikeet, this bird is a since developed more pronounced areas of lighter green plumage but still The aviculture of this species is similar to the Rainbow Lorikeet, but perhaps they are not quite so hardy or prolific, although the successful rearing of four clutches per year has been recorded. hen is just five months old. with grey-green plumage is successfully produced. cock and size and weight is between that of an adult Rainbow cock and an adult also likely a hybrid as she lacks many of the rainbow features (eg no green a normal green bird. Mutations are naturally occuring genetic variations. Such walled areas that are unavoidable because of the necessity to provide protection from prevailing winds, etc., should be constructed of an easy to clean impervious material such as colour bond iron wall cladding. Resident populations do not appear to have developed as with the other Australian Trichoglossus, although I am told that some Red-collared can usually be observed in the Darwin area all year round. attractive variations of well known lories and lorikeets. pairings of birds to create colour mutations. no green present. (an interesting note here is that the side cheek red patches in pointing out the dilema that many breeders (and magazine editors!) overlaying areas of light green (lime?) In nature, mutations are constantly occuring but with lories, colour mutations Scientists gives an excellent scientific explanation of colour genetics in Note that the blue mutation is quite common in other birds such as The Rainbow Lorikeet is one of maybe 18 to 20 subspecies of T. haematodus, a complex which is widely distributed through the southwest Pacific islands, Papua-New Guinea and Indonesia. It is totally nomadic with its search for pollen, fruits, vegetable matter and insects governing its movements. They have developed physical differences that have set them aside from other parrots. Many aviculturists strive to olive-green coloured plumage. is just slightly more than the average NZ$150 for a green Scaly, although reasonably common in wild populations. The most common feature Regular inspection of your birds and of nest boxes containing young, will usually solve problems before they become too serious. The two cinnamons are from the same parents but one The ratio of liquid, dry food and vegetable matter can be adjusted by the bird to suit its requirements.return to top. it can prove quite difficult to get that visual male bird, the basis for In captivity, with the available gene-pool being have interbred to produce naturally occuring hybrids. below using the Scaly Lorikeet as an example of how these colours are are much broader and underneath to his tail is a very mixed light green and Some New Zealand breeders have or are currently trying to introduce this Sexes are alike in this species. Shown below are several images of scaly lorikeets, these are all of the stunning new colour variations. Both have been dna sexed and are hens. Two eggs are laid and incubated by the female for an average of twenty-three days, and the chicks fledge in eight to nine weeks. Scaly-breasted Lorikeet Starting with a male The genus Glossopsitta is a totally Australian genus. coloured plumage. offspring can mostly be grouped into two categories. These are sure to appeal to many people who will be attracted by these Their diet consists of pollen and nectar, usually from Eucalypt and Melaleuca blossom, vegetable matter and insects. established breeding pair that always produce visuals. Several mutations of the Rainbow Lorikeet have occured. genetic problems could become apparent and raise issues that prevent the Double or even triple brooding is likely, especially if babies are removed for hand rearing. The chicks fledge between eight and nine weeks old. At right is a cross bewteen a Musk and Rainbow lorikeet. Trichoglossus, by the way means "hairy-tongued". Two eggs are laid, very rarely three, and are incubated by the female for an average of twenty-two days. They are numerous within their range but less plentiful at the northern and southern extremities. with The of yellow on his back and the mixed yellow/green tail plumage. Rainbow & Scaly Mutations. be a cinnamon but this time the plumage is again yellow (more so than the - These birds are much easier for raptors and other predators to select from a process!) its musk parent. grey/green (often called Olive) colour in lorikeets, which only occurs Starting with a male This is overall bright yellow plumage with white feet, toenails, legs and The largest is the Musk Lorikeet, the smallest is the Little Lorikeet, and in the middle the Purple-crowned Lorikeet. is present the bird colour is always grey/green. Rainbow Lorikeet Mutations. offspring can mostly be grouped into two categories. the mutation. This Lorikeet's basic diet is pollen, vegetable matter and a few insects and it is doubtful if any type of seeds are ever eaten. Many breeders, especially in Australia, are now advertising these new They are the Blue Scaly-breasted, which has occurred at least twice but has not been established; the Olive Scaly-breasted which appeared first in Queensland about fifteen years ago, and can now be classed as an established aviary mutation; the Cinnamon which has occurred at least twice, and is currently being worked on by Queensland and New South Wales aviculturists; and a Jade or Laurel-green Scaly which is being worked on in a Queensland aviary.return to top. Using these simple rules birds can be paired to increase the chances of by Dr Terry Martin BVSc. With sex-linked rules only males can be splits, all females will either be green with areas of yellow. visual. This clearly shows the variation in overall plumage colours been available although, as yet, no grey-green musks or red-collars are known to be here. Twelve different genera have developed throughout the Southwest Pacific region, Indonesia, New Guinea and Australia. red collar with just specks of yellow. white on flight feather edges and ends. This may take several generations of breeding experiments before a musk Overall yellow plumage, white feet, toes and white flight feather edges Eyes are always a bright pink colour. Someone has just pointed out to me that the above images of cinnamon scaly Musk and breeding experiments. Aviaries being designed to house lorikeets exclusively should have a minimum of solid wall shelter and partition areas and a maximum of wire meshed areas, so reducing the walled areas that will become soiled. very light almost white coloured. bird that is a colour split the theory is that it should only take several In my opinion this is just as wrong. Most Their diet is similar to the other Australian Trichoglossus but they appear to show more preference for pollen and some native seeds. collar being yellow they are in every other way red-collars. An Olive form has been produced by cross breeding with Olive Scaly-breasted Lorikeets, and then breeding back to Rainbows, but is not common in Australian aviculture and is not a true mutation, being derived by hybridization. The method by which colour genes are passed on from parents to Housing. I have an unconfirmed report of a Lutino in a New South Wales aviary, there is a cinnamon mutation established in South Africa, and I know of three yellow birds in New South Wales that don't conform to normal patterns. and the next step would be to mate him with a normal rainbow hen. There is only one recorded instance of a blue Scaly So far all of the known Scaly lorikeet yellow/cinnamon mutations appear to - Grey-Green (aka Olive but this incorrect naming for this mutation) This mutation is originally though to have come from Scaly lorikeets and is reasonably common in wild populations. Hybids and Mutations of Lories are Lories that are in general different in split males and normal males. This lorikeet ranges continuously from Cape York Peninsular down the east coast of Australia with an isolated population in the Perth district of Western Australia. pair with other normal mates. If the male and female are both splits then the outcome will be tables and charts that detail the outcome of colour mutation breeding in are not very common (with the one possible exception of the grey/green colour Her toes are white, feet skin a pink colour and Lorikeets have received more dietary abuse at the hands of aviculturists than any other avian group. coloured feathers, this is apparently normal expected cinnamon colouring from The Cinnamon Rainbow Lorikeet This mutation is sexually dimorphic with the cock being a lighter lime than the hen and is recessive in inheritance. aviculture as breeders become more knowledgable at pairing birds to promote light green (lime) appears very yellow. Red-collared Lorikeet (see below), Hybids and Mutations of Lories are Lories that are in general different in - Cinnamon lorikeet, in Australia, and apparently the inexperienced breeder failed one or more features from the expected 'normal' Lory. This leads to an interesting point that many aviculturists believe the The yellower bird has I had three pairs nest last season (1985) rearing two clutches of four and one of three, and this season the same three pairs have reared similar clutches, and two of these pairs are in the process of rearing second nests. The olive scaly only appeared in New Zealand aviculture several years ago All normally green plumage is replaced It is unlikley that such hybrids do become very common for several reasons: parrots. Their diet is similar to the Rainbow Lorikeet and they have developed a liking for cultivated tropical fruits such as mangoes. This is the largest member of the exclusively Australian genus Glossopsitta. available with wild flocks of lories and naturally occuring mutations are A visual female with a normal male will produce split males and normal females. Suspended aviaries around 3.5 metres long are the prefered accomodation. Lory hybrids are the result of cross breeding different types of lory. This cock bird cold be used to try and produce an Olive rainbow Below are listed some recomendations on further reading on the subject of Varied Lorikeet This species is extremely nomadic and has kept constant in colour and form due to the integration throughout its range.
