  1. thanks finnie was just about to post that. Sherlock is this helping at all?
  2. goldenface - yes (would say single) opaline - yes. other genes - no she appears more mauve to me in the pictures than violet,
  3. actually what you have listed in the last clutch are all blue based birds as well. Your 'yellow and green pied' might be in fact a goldenface. or else he is not the father as you believe.
  4. it looks similar to the lumps that appeared with my hens that were laying/just finished laying. I don't think you have been told two different things just different ways of stating the issue. A fatty deposit caused by laying eggs and brooding (not moving as much) If you think a bit of weight needs to be shifted off the bird look into giving finch food over budgie mix however only you know your birds and if she is a normal weight then don't worry with a change of seeds. As always keep an eye on her and if she is having trouble moving or standing take her back to the vet.
  5. agree there is a dark factor in one of the parents, even the yellowface in the nest box picture looks cobalt not skyblue. As Hilly said the chick in question is a double factor spangle with suffusion. This will darken as the chick grows,
  6. No paired to a normal male you will only get split male offspring. To get a male albino offspring you need an Ino male or split ino male.
  7. they look so simliar! get looking birds too.
  8. true with the photos changing the colours slightly. The grey wing will be washing the colour out a bit
  9. yeah I think bub chewed it exploring and following dad. Glad it is okay. Are the pictures above of the same bird?? If so it gos to show how photos can change the cere colours as I would say hen for the first and cock for the second.
  10. I wouldn't say double factor. the depth could be due to a dark factor or it is a hidden gene from the father. I would like bigger shots of the parents as golden face is dominant over yellow face
  11. looks normal to me too, they take a while to get full strength however your birds legs are not flat to the side as a splayed bird would have. I hope they were not sat out like that for long.. if you are weighing them maybe keep in a small bowl with washer or tissues to keep temps up.
  12. pictures aren't helping as the bird is fuzzy. However it is normal for a hen losing breeding condition to shed her cere and it can fall off in patches. The cere underneath can be a pale blue to white colour. Some hens can have a lot of build up on there ceres others a thin layer. Please provide clear pictures.
  13. her yellow will darken with a moult and her violet will turn more green as she ages as the yellow bleeds into the body area. Her throat spots should stay brown which would mean cinnamon as well.
  14. she is a wonderful bird. Golden face opaline spangle dominant pied violet and I think cinnamon as well (throat spots look brown to me)
  15. disagree Finnie - this bird is about 4 weeks old if yellow face the body would still be blue at this age. Not knowing the parents I would say green series.
