Truly scary! The enormous gaping maw ascending from the deep! Aaaagh!
Seriously! I think I’m gonna print that photo out and maybe draw it bigger!

Willow tries to intimidate me by opening his beak at me when he’s in his cage. I swear I can see all the way down his throat. I’ve gotta get a pic of it sometime.

well humans do it to themselves, only someone that can't see the iridescent colors in a parrots natural colors has to do this.....

The second one is probably photoshop. The bird on the left is fake. Though the other one could be real.
Yeah I think the purple budgies are fake, budgies don't really have bright colouring, it's usually slightly dull.

Yup. Also the left one has purple stripes on a white body. That’s fake.

I'll take my rescue budgies that will over those anyways....mine have personality and are bad birds.....which make them good birds.....they just waste a lot of food. When it's bed time I just point to the cage door and say "go on, go inside" they are like ok bed time I get it.....I'd rather have a smart bird over a photoshop bird.

from Facebook.

Currently I am on 3 parrot-related Polish groups, all of them are moderated by a lady who often shares such fake photos and sometimes she even believes they are real:LOL: (at least she believed in purple hyacinth macaws:LOL:)
It looks like she forgot that purple hyacinthes are fake. I just saw how on all 3 groups she posted a video made by her called "mutations of parrots" and there's this photo πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

Edit: Now it's confirmed. She totally forgot what I had written her and thought that purple hyacinthes live in the wild πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

Some of this stuff is just funny. I love bright purple budgies that no one has ever came across. Then again most of us on this parrot forum have experience with parrots, and know better. Imagine the amount of people who have no clue then go looking for a purple hyacinthes macaw, or the bright purple budgies. I would lose it laughing if I worked in a pet store, and someone asked me where the rainbow budgies are… 🀣
