Identify this bird?

I found this ad while browsing sites, and I have tried to think what on earth the bird actually is! It looks like a hybrid to me, but I don't have a clue

http://www.gumtree.com/p/pets/parake...ry-item-full-3

Anybody got a clue?

Female King Parrot? http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...-Australia.JPG
Or a hybrid of a King and a Princess of Wales?

I KNOW the potential species that it could be, but they emailed me back and said it was a female barraband. However, barrabands don't have red above their legs! Definitely not a POW. Also not a regent, not a king (female kings are just green with a little red belly whereas this has blue on it), I've looked into all of the Australian parakeets and cannot for the life of me think of what it is, which is why I think it's a hybrid. I asked for more pictures and a better one of the cage but they just replied saying she is a barraband. Definitely not a barraband haha

At first glance it looks like a Barraband hen to me. Some hens do get the red on their legs.

See I thought there could be canary wing in it but I don't think it is. And I didn't know that Amelia, I haven't ever seen one with red on its legs ever! Not even in photos
