Eyering with Eyering the offspring are fertile. But Eyering with Peachface are normally sterile mules. So no it will not be possible to put your hybrid baby back across Eyering birds.

Also from your pictures the first bird may be a hybrid itself. It looks to be a hybrid Blue Masked Lovebird crossed with a Blue Fischers Lovebird.

You may find this link to the African Lovebird Society of Australia interesting. I used to be a member when I had Lovebirds.

Yes I agree with Kate on the first bird, that's a blue masked x blue Fischer's. The mask isn't full enough to be a masked. And also agreeing with Kate, you can't breed from an eyering x peach faced lovebird hybrid. Eyering to eyering is quite common however
