Are Jellybean Parrots really a cross at all?
Hey everyone. I recently got a pair of "Jellybean Parrots" from a local Petco. At the time I wasn't sure if they were fertile or not, and posted a question on ********.com, the site I'd been frequenting to learn about my Oscar. Anyway, one of the members made a claim I'd never read about before, a claim that Jellbean Parrots were just a strain of "short-bodied" Albino/Pink Convict. He showed a few pictures of short bodied versions of other species such as this one of Texas cichlids:
No one else could confirm or deny his claim, and I was just curious if anyone had ever ended up with a typical "Jellybean" like the one pictured by mixing a Blood Parrot and a Convict, or if a Jellybean really is just a "short-bodied" Convict, breed from two Convict cichlids?
