  1. So very sorry for your losses.
  2. Thank you Finnie. I hope to stay around this time. Heh heh. But I am feeling so happy to be around this forum again and most of all my budgie's even if a few faces are no longer physically a part of my flock. x So truthfully I couldn't get very close to her without causing her to flap around like a maniac so I haven't had a great look at her but now she has settled know's I feed her and don't want to harm her she allows my face near the cage now. Lol. Looking at her they are defiantly not silver so she is not a grey. Her cheek patches are a dull violet and her colour seems to have brightened up and I noticed that in the light her rump even though it appears so dark has a blueish sheen on it. (Sorry its blurry)
  3. Hi all after a very long break due to health problems I am back and well I got this little lady a little over a week ago now. She is gorgeous, her name is Little Rock. Now I did have a go at identifying her mutation but I am not very good in the blue series but I knew you guys would know right off. My speculation is that she is a Grey or Mauve. Dominant pied, YF type 2 (She seems to have a lot of yellow bleeding through or this could be a product of her pied) And I feel she is also Opaline. Any help is much appreciated.
  4. These all look amazing! I wish you luck and cannot wait to see what is born from these wonderful things.x
  5. Some more pictures of the little fella, such a unique soul. I honestly can't heal at all, this morning I went out to see him at his grave site beneath a tree in the garden only to find that a cat had pooed right on top of his grave! I apologized to him told him I love him and that he has to take care of Star and that Sky will be look after him like her baby, she always wanted chicks and died egg bound. Rest in peace my boy. 12th April 2008- 5th April 2013. He looks so big in the photo's but he really wasn't he was the smallest budgie I had considering his parents are brutes it was quite a shock. I even have little jelly bean photo's of him, but looking at those are to hard at the moment. Something to honor his "wife" by. Me and my precious dog Star, sleep well girl. xx Thank you so much! Your words are so kind and caring. I will take them and hope that they will lift me into a stronger place. x
  6. I never knew that it was so difficult to find a a green budgie anymore, hmmm. I mean I guess it has been 6-7 years since I went to a pet shop or breeder for a budgie. I used to breed my light green pair, but have stopped now due to the females age. They were great parents I love the greens more than anything but I do like some of the other variations too. If I were still breeding them and you were willing to travel as I live near London I would have welcomed you to one. Maybe a rescue may have some, just keep looking in pet shops or even search for a UK breeder. I wish you luck on finding your feathered friend. I recently just lost my talking green budgie boy Ollie and I am devastated. He was a doll with a wonderful vocabulary.
  7. I know I haven't been around at all lately I have been absolutely stumped by looking for work and simply living that I barely have time to have "me time" So sorry guys, if you even remember me. On the 5th of April my cherished budgie Ollie passed away so suddenly...he was healthy I, my whole family are shocked. My mum was distraught. He was a great little budgie just 7 days from his 5th birthday he talked from morning till night even when dropping into sleep. I would be greeted each morning by a tiny squawky voice saying "Ollie...kiss *Kiss noises* kisses!" then I'd kiss him say thank you and then he'd make the kiss noise back and say "Thank youuu!" In the highest voice. He was such an outgoing bird always happy talking away in mainly his own language which was a mixture of budgie garble and human speech, he'd basque in the sun when it shone through the front door into his hallway, boy it was his hallway. Even though he was a friendly little guy everything you'd touch in the hallway he'd growl at you on some days but his worse was when you touched his favorite lattice ball with a tiny plastic bell in it. (So no shinyness to become possessive of) he'd actually lunge at you and on a couple of occasions he ripped off skin on my arm because I wanted to rearrange his cage after a clean out. He enjoyed baths the most out of all my budgies I would fill up a little plastic tub and hold it up near the top of his cage for him so he didn't have to go to the floor and stay there while he splashed around fully submerged in the water. Though I could never truly tame him we had a bond of trust and I respected him. I think because of that he allowed me to scratch his little cheeks and requested it sometimes. He would walk up to the side of the cage and sit with his head tilted. Everything he did was perfect I watched him grow from a tiny jelly bean of a chick into a fully grown (small but big in a different way) Adult this forum even named him. Little guy I love you and will always love you fly free. I lost my dog of almost 12 years on the same day and that is exscrutiating I am not coping at all, the house is silent no barks from either Star or Ollie no more greeting furry or feathered and as of now I am so numb, my insides burning. I am struggling to do almost everything, I don't want to wake and when I do I hope that I will wake from this nightmare and all would be how I left it. Whole. I have a question and maybe its just my heart telling me that this is the answer but my dog went to the vets on the Tuesday and stayed there for three days and then after those three days Ollie passed away (Star also passed away on the same day) but I am wondering if he died from grieve as he was perfectly healthy even no longer alive his feathers were absolutely gorgeous. I still have his parents they are 6-7 years old so its all confusing and just difficult. He loved her so much, like he'd call to her and regurgitation to her at the side of the cage and show off for her. He even said her name then barked at her....
  8. No sorry they are just simply normal greens. There are some quite usefull Topics on here that can help you out with learning the different mutations. Hope all is well with your bubs, good luck with them!
  9. I was supposed to scrap they Spangle part. lol. Woops. Thanks.
  10. Hi I think they are Grey wing spangles, skyblue dilutes. Also the top one looks to have the yellow face mutation too. However I am still learning the ways of budgie mutations myself. Still all very beautiful birds though.
  11. You def have 3 males and like Finne said its hard to say from the picture what the dilute is. But you have a normal dark green male. Normal colbalt greywing male. Light green dilute maybe opaline but I can't see the back so can't be certian. And lastly a normal sky violet dominant pied male. The guess's on the blue birds could be wrong I am still struggling with the shades of blues. Hope I could help. Jodie.
  12. They probably just need time to bond with one another, where abouts in/on the cage is your nest box. Budgies prefer to nest in high secure places the box is better placed on the outside of the cage so you can view and clean the inside easy and stress free. Good luck. baby chat. Jodie.
  13. No worries olgalit thats what the forum is for. You learn along the way also. Yellow face is a mutation that is a recessive gene that is only as Nerwen said in white based birds (the blues and greys) Greens are a dark based gene that can't have the mutation yellow face. They do have yellow faces but that is a normal occurrence they are refered to (Normal greens) They look like your boy on the left of the photo. The (Normal blues) have white faces. So when the gene yellow face occures in the blues it is yellow face because its not a the natural colour of the blue budgie. (Even though the blue budgie isnt something that appears in nature~But I dont want to confuse you more) Because the yellow face gene is recessive it can be carried in a green bird but it doesnt show its something you'd find out in breeding with a (blue/grey budgie)
  14. On the opaline but my laptop shows colours differently than my computer. So she probably isn't. I just said on my laptop I see cinnamon (but it could be my laptop)
