What should i breed him with to get rainbow?

Recommended Posts


I'm new here and new to budgie breeding. Below are photo's of my baby boy. I would like to buy him a mate when he reaches breeding age with the goal of producing rainbow budgies. Will it be possible? If so, is there anyone who could advise me on what characteristics I should look for in a female to accomplish this goal?

Hi. Your bird appears to be a Spangle which is not ideal for breeding Rainbows. You need Clearwings, Opaline, Golden Face or Yellow all in combination.

If you add Opaline to the colours of your bird you will get some attractive birds which are similar to Rainbows.

Breeding Rainbows takes years to put together the colours that make a Rainbow. 

Have fun.
