Hi Chris,
It is a yellow Scarlet-chested Parrot. There are many mutations of
Australian parrots in aviaries both here and overseas.
The "neophemas" are a quite popular group for mutations, for instance rose
(rosa) Bourke Parrots. There are quite a number
of Princess Parrot mutations also. If you have some time, google either of
these and see what has been done to our birds.
