Emerald / Olive Cockatiel

The typical grey coloration is heavily decreased and a yellow wash can be seen all over the bird – giving it the name “olive” (because it is not true olive like in dark factor). Pure emeralds will always have dark or grey-colored beaks and feet. They were first discovered in the aviaries of N. and J. Ludwig in the 1980s. It is a recessive mutation.
