Hello Edwin,Mike and others,

According to HANZAB 1V, some adult Turquoise Parrots have a large bright
orange patch patch in the centre of the belly, extending in some cases
onto the breast, while on other birds the orange patch may be smaller or
duller or entirely absent. Interestingly, HANZAB notes that  the orange
patch on wild females tends to be more extensive (like that on males)
than on captive females.
