Re: Help finding YNA Blue mutation

I guess them picking you IS huge, and worth paying more! I "ordered" the BWP I wanted (Raven) from his breeder, and had him shipped across the country. When he met me he was clearly disappointed LOL! But thankfully he has slowly 'learned' to be fond of me over the years .

Good luck finding your blue YNA, and may they be the perfect companion as well.

Re: Help finding YNA Blue mutation

Rachel had one.

I don't know who took over Howard Voren's aviaries after he died, but Howard Voren is the one who had all the mutations. Howard was one of the original old school parrot breeders. He was quite a character. A LOT of what we know today about parrots came from Howard. He is missed...

(Henpecked is a friend of Howard.)

Please know that Henpecked has been very busy of late and as a result has been difficult to contact.

Re: Help finding YNA Blue mutation

texsize, you are such a tease!

At the price per gram of a YNA Blue Mutation, one would need several oil wells to support their purchase!

Using that formula, a "pre-owned" blue front works out to 83 cents a gram for those looking for a budget blue parrot. Wonder what these blue beauties would cost? More than a HY?

Re: Help finding YNA Blue mutation

I was just doing some surfing at work. Doing a google search for amazon mutations the Blue YNA shows up a lot.
When I saw that video I remember someone on the forum was looking for one.

Just thought I would be helpful

If Henpecked helps you locate one (and if anyone would know where to get one, he would), I think us amazon lovers on here would all be very excited to have a blue mutation YNA around on the forums! Very rare, very beautiful, would be curious about personality etc.. compared to a 'normal' YNA.
There might be a personality difference due to inbreeding. There are some who claim it causes health problems, too, though. I have no idea how you could find out if that's the case with such a rare mutation.

Every once in awhile, I Google blue YNA just to look at them, though. Beautiful.
