Red African Greys!

A member of the Linnie Forum shared this with us, and I wanted to share it with all of you They're really pretty, though I like the pieds and the double red factors, as opposed to the solid reds.

http://www.redafricangrey.com/More_A...ican_Grey.html

If what they said in the videos is true, he was able to legally import some Greys with stray red feathers to breed into his red factors, so it seems like this will be a strong mutation, which is great to see!

OMG, thats so amazing!

I love them so much!! They're so pretty! On the other hand, it's a bit like they have a bad sunburn.
Not sure which I like better, the grey of the normal CAG's, or this new mutation. Hmm, I'll have to think about that.

But they're so beautiful though. I want one so much!

Thanks so much for sharing this, Jenny! I love looking at new mutations!

Same here - I like the one who looks like he has a red vest on best!

I love the normal greys better. Plus, inbreeding is usually how they obtain mutations such as those. They're unique, but I think the natural look looks better

I honestly prefer the one pied one, with the dark beak and looks like he has a red vest

The pieds are beautiful, but that pink one is not my cup of tea.

Aww they are soooo cute!

They remind of black-collared hawks:

The hawk is gorgeous. I'm not impressed with the red greys, but that is just me.

Agreed. I much prefer the pieds in the photos. I dont like the red one's faces, they just look... odd
