Specializing in Opaline Mutations


Welcome to my site: Please also visit my original site @ http://opalinelovebirds.com/

​I have also moved to new location. I'm no longer in Monterey Park. I'm now located in Hacienda Heights, California. To begin; my bird's are selectively bred to obtain some of the best birds possible within the Continental United States. I have and keep 46 of the best to offer the best. Please enjoy site while I give it a face lift and modernize it as site was becoming dated. My original site will also go through a face lift, current pictures will be updated to show new pairs, birds and mutations I now raise and keep. Afterwards second site is also be reloaded with current picture's.  Please don't hesitate to call or E-Mail me for available birds I have available.

​My new pairs are producing which enables me to offer high quality pedigree birds for purchase. Unfortunately I also eliminated more mutations than I had anticipated last year. In doing so I offer higher quality birds as I can now concentrate on certain mutations and colors rather than a variety. Just click on available pictures on both sites to view current inventory. In past months I haven't had enough birds to post as not all birds I produced had matured. I do have available opalines in white headed / white face, Lavender and other rare color mutations and combinations in limited numbers. Call or text to verify available birds on hand.   

​My program is focused on White face often referred to as clear face in White Head Opaline Violet and Blue series. I also have rare Bronze Fallow, Pale and dilute Pale Fallow (Fallow's not available at this time), True Blue, Dominant pied in Violet, Turquoise and blue turquoise, Recessive pied in turquoise and green series, /Pallid (Aust.Cinnamon), White Face Edge Dilute, White Face Turquoise, White Face and Red Headed Lutino Opaline and phenotype combination in single and dark factor Opaline or split to Opaline.  

​If you’re just starting and not familiar with Opaline; They can be visual Red, Orange, White, Yellow and Apricot colored heads including a wide range of colors not to mention price. You can also view some of my breeders pairs for reference by clicking link to my breeder or babies page. 

​I do sell producing breeder pairs and will be posted when available. However, I can definitely make up pairs in color or mutation(s) of choice as it can be a year before breeder pair's are available. From time to time I'm asked for input on bird's bought from another breeder. I've made it a rule of thumb never to discuss birds bought from other breeder's as it's unprofessional and unfair to comment not knowing genetic make up. I also receive calls and emails wanting certain birds or to assist locating them. My Objective is to sell my stock which is the same for other breeder's. I'm a straight shooter; I will try and help you understand genetic and right pairing's. However, searching and locating birds is not ideal for me and suggest I not be contacted or asked to. If you’re interested in buying basic entry bird's, I don't breed,raise or have any. My basic birds aren't that basic as most if not all are carrier's of genetic's to produce high end mutation's. I'm very diligent in record keeping the old fashion way (Pen and Paper).

​ I've added some links; I could add more links or even write paragraphs on breeding and pairing's, but any thing I would add is available on web through lovebird forums, you tube and more. If you liked to know how to hand feed? you tube has wonderful video's on it. 

​I don't colony bred, pair's are housed separately in an effort to obtain the best results possible in Peach Face (Roseicollis) variety. Pairs are also selected by genetic makeup to produce clean blood lines and to obtain top quality birds in select color's or mutation combinations. To protect my birds and collection, any new bird acquired to incorporate into my blood line is quarantined for 30 to 60 days. I will gladly verify gender whether you buy from me or not as I also went through the same ordeal not knowing if I had a male or female in an area away from my aviary. My aviary is annually checked by avian vet. to protect my collection.    

​I do not ship outside lower 48, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam or International. I recommend a third party to handle purchase and import / export logistics.  

Cashier’s checks, money order's or personnel checks are welcomed for out of states buyers, local buyers are welcomed to come and select by appointment. Some bird (s) may not be posted as available due to being reserved in advance or as it becomes available has been pre-ordered. I raise bird's in very low numbers to control quality. I plan to lower numbers by half to concentrate on Bronze Fallow. I will no longer be producing or keeping Orange Head Lutino and some other mutations. My focus is blue series in white face and white head. I still have a normal job, bird's are strict hobby.

​ If you're looking for information on mutations or combination breeding results? It's readyly available on the internet or by visiting ALBS, Mutavi group and regional club web sites. Dirk Van den Abeele has a wonderful site I encourage all to visit. I enjoy bird's, I will trade with others, I retain some birds until mature to verify color from pairing results. Those birds meeting my expectations will become breeders the following year or at some point. Those that don't will be offered for sale. But even the bird's not meeting my requirements are of superb quality

Because of past experience I only place bird(s) on reserve without deposit to allow payment arrival. I also don't accept Paypal under any circumstances. I reserve the right to sell locally, to not reserve, sell or ship if buyer's not in good standing.
