If its Pink then it should NOT be brought that means it has been acid painted, they ONLY come in a red/orange color.

Does this dye come of parrots?

I've saw them white and prefer them like that.

Never thought before what they are crossed with .is it a severum and something else?

I'm not sure exactly what they are crossed with, but yes, after time, the dye fades. I'm not sure if they go back to white though.

Also, some yellow parrots are not dyed. My parrot was mostly black, with hints of yellow when I got him. He's now at 2" and is solid yellow.

Juvie parrots have black spots on them.
Normal parrots are some kind of mix between sevs, red devil/midas.
White parrots are called jellybeans. They are the ones that are usually dyed. (Note: white is their natural color).
Jellybeans are a cross between a female parrot and a pink male convict.
