The green kakariki is what is in the wild...(there used to be mutations too)
The "yellow" refers to the yellow crown species and the "red" refers to the red crown species
yours is a red crown...the yellow body is a mutation.

Have a browse thru the gallery there are sections on mutations species etc.

Your little man appears to be a male.

Cheers
