Here she is, what do you think?

Definatly a yellow/red hybrid...Note the red feathers in the crown and the orange 'tinge' to the crown.
pure breed yellows are a clear but pailish yellow, which usually brightens slightly after a couple moults.

You see the kakariki in the page header at the top, that winks at u?
He winks for a reason, look close at the crown..bit like your crown but colours reversed.

Very typical of the hybrid junk we see in the UK and should not be bred from!

She is also a pied mutation. Not even close to a pure yellow crown.

just my 2 cents but a good solution, if you have enough space, would be to keep this bird as foster or tutor the weaning youngsters
to breed I think it's better if you look for a bird with better characteristics
