Frank is just adorable, I love the head tilt. Such a lively color of blue too. You have him landing on your arm, that is great! I envy you. :)

Lovely bird, is he true violet? The blue/violet colours don't come out true to colour on pics. so it's hard to tell. Love the play gym.

I think he is robyn, not completely sure. would love to breed him and see what I get! he has a white spot on the back of his head so I think he's split for recessive pied, so could produce some interesting babies :). maybe in a year or two..

Hi frankiebird, If he has a white spot on the back of his head this would mean that he is a dominant pied, with very little markings, if you breed with him to a normal color say all blue, you may get som dominant pied chicks.

Hello Frank and Frankiebird. He is just gorgeous, love his colour and he looks like quite a character.

I'm pretty sure the spot on the back of the head on a normal bird means split recessive pied.

Ive always known a spot on the back of a birds head to denote that it is a dominant pied variety showing the minimal pied markings. I have read this to be a fact and I have bred birds with just a spot on their heads from dominant pied matings. all it takes is the one spot and these lightly marked pieds can throw better marked and defined dominant pieds in their progeny
