I'm not an expert on them, but I think the first one the Opaline Texas Clear BOdy cock, probably has the best colour...with out suffusion of Green through the body.

Texas Clearbody

In the Texas clearbody variety, the color of the budgie's body feathers is diffused or absent, and the wing markings are dark at the top and fade to a light grey toward the tips of the wings. The standard for the Texas clearbody budgie is to have no color in the body feathers, leaving only yellow or white (depending, of course, if the budgie is yellow-based or white-based). The Texas clearbody can however, have some color in the body feathers of up to a 50% dilution. In this case the body feather color is stronger toward the vent and rump feathers.

Clear something up for me here people? TCB - is it recessive? I have seen people breeding TCB's with albinos. Which shows?

Texas Clearbody is an allele of ino and as such is sex linked recessive. Another term used for this allelic occurance is 'par-ino'.

I pair my clearbodies to Ino's to get rid of the suffusion. 50% Clearbody split Ino cocks, 50% Clearbody hens. I keep opaline in my clearbodies, I prefer them like that. Here is a site: http://www.bestofbreeds.net/al-nasser/article8.htm

 

Here are my cocks:

Opaline Grey-Green Clearbody Cock. Red Ring.

Opaline Grey-Green Clearbody Cock with the Lutino Hen. Red Ring hen. These two have been... getting interested in breeding. Haha Eggs any day.

I also have a Opaline Violet and another Opaline Clearbody Grey-Green Cock.

Thankyou! My violet hen is sick, so I wouldn't want to post a picture right now. TCB's are a forgotten and ignored mutation almost. I am looking at possibly turning to TCB's altogether. Here are the two boys-23485_108723785810885_1000001979131.jpg

Thankyou Kaz :wacko: I got the cock that was in with the lutino hen from a backyard pet-type breeder. When I was given the Lute girl and second cock later on as a gift from a club member, it turns out the two lute boys must be related! They definitely look related. Haha I just remembered I have another clear body in the aviary. I suppose more photos :rofl:
