Can you give a better pic of the crown please
It looks like a hybrid cross between the red crown and yellow crown species rather than a mutation within a species.
Hybrids are not good for breeding and hybridising between species like that does nothing more than dilute the genetic purity of an endangered species...espec considering that there will never be any more come from th wild or even from capitivity in NZ.

No responsable breeder will breed hybrids, let alone sell them...and if sold are basically worthless.
Sry to be so blunt.
Please put up a good pic of the crown.
