Pink & Blue Budgie
Pink & White Budgie
recently I was visiting my grandmother in Qld and spotted the a couple of budgies in the community aviary. I took a few pictures, as I had never seen one before. I bred budgies when I was a child and hadn't come across a pink budgie before. Now I am trying to find out if it is unusual...and it appears that it is IMPOSSIBLE for a budgie to be pink. If so, how does one explain these two birds. There are at least 7 other birds in the aviary, none of whom are pink, so it isn't food related. I doubt any of the oldies have been slipping the birds some food dye or minerals!
Any thoughts on this one would be greatly appreciated!
I have added pictures above....they aren't great but you get the idea. You can really see the pink in their feathers.
