  1. I have no clue as to how these 2 differentiate as I've heard of Dominant Pied budgies that do not have a clear band across the belly, which would make them look like Clearflight Pieds. I bought one today. He has pink feet (which I am aware that some Clearflight Pieds do also have pink feet). Also, is he a violet or a mauve? Here's him at the pet store. At home.
  2. It seems that there are Full Body Greywings and Clearwings now....except the 1st chick, who appears to be a Greywing to me...but have a look. If she's a FBC Greywing then that should solve all the confusion. Full Body Greywing Skyblue? Clearwing YF2 Cobalt? Clearwing YF2 Cobalt? Clearwing Skyblue? Full Body Greywing Violet? Full Body Greywing Mauve? (or grey??? cheek patch confuses me) If they are what I think they are, and mum is a Cinnamon Greywing and dad is a Full Body Greywing...so Clearwing+Greywing will produce FBC Greywings...bu
  3. You hit the nail on the head. I was looking at one of the chicks which looks a LOT like its dad when he was a little boy...so I am assuming there might be some Full Body Greywings. This one here, for example, dark stripes and bright body colour. But then have a look at this Skyblue...such pale markings and a bright body colour. I'm leaning towards a Clearwing Sky. Can't make my mind up about this Mauve yet...but has dark stripes as well. But then the oldest chick....isn't she a Greywing? because she looks a lot like my other Greywing Skyblue (or Cobalt
  4. Dad is a Full Body Greywing Violet Cobalt. Mom is a Cinnamon Dilute Yellowface Mutant 2 Cobalt The first chick is a Greywing Skyblue. The 2nd and 3rd I assume are Clearwing Yellowface Mutant 2s. Their stripes are fainter than the first chick's, so it is one of the reasons why I'm leaning towards clearwing. I can't make up my mind on if these 2 are violets, cobalts or skyviolets. They look alike. Side by side, the Greywing sister on the right, and the Clearwing (I think) on the left. The Gre
  5. So far 2 chicks show white down feathers. Parents are: Daddy: Full Body Greywing (or a Badly Marked Clearwing) Violet Cobalt. Mommy: Yellowface Mutant 2 Cinnamon Greywing (or Cinnamon Dilute) Cobalt. The first chick: I think this chick might be Mauve? Do the stripes look like a Normal's or a Greywing's? The whole clutch (The 2nd chick also has white down it seems). Is there a possibility that the first chick is an Opaline? Or is the down white because it's a Greywing series bird? Mommy: Daddy:
  6. I came across this thread while searching for a solution to a similar problem. My hen laid 6 viable eggs, and the first 3 hatched at 17th day of incubation. I noticed the 4th egg was covered in poop, so to clean it up in order to prevent bacterial infection, I used a moist tissue paper to wipe it clean. While doing so, a poop seemed glued to the shell. I was able to remove it, but it came off with a bit of the shell, creating a hole in the egg (the 16th day of incubation). Immediately blood started oozing out of that hole. I looked up for some solutions, and I didn't have nail po
  7. This is my first time breeding so I want to make sure. The legs look normal, right? And so do the toes? The chick is 5 days old.
  8. My cock (15 months old) and the hen (18 months old) have 6 eggs in the current clutch (1st two eggs were not viable), 5 of which are fertile (the 8th was laid 2 days ago so don't know it's status yet). She;s not going to lay any more eggs (the next egg was supposed to arrive today but it didn't and her swelling subsided). The first egg is due to hatch on the 7th of December if all goes well. The problem I've been facing for about 2 weeks is that prior to the arrival of the first egg (about 3-4 days) I've noticed that the cock has been losing weight. Most people say that it is
  9. 1. Do they have to mate the same day the egg is laid? My hen laid her 6th egg today, but I was asleep in my room all day so the lights were out. So they didn't get to mate before the egg was laid most probably (unless they can mate in the dark???). Is there a chance this egg could be fertile? They did mate yesterday. Usually I see them mating even on the day, a few hours before an egg is laid. 2 eggs are fertile so far. Will candle another egg tomorrow to know if that is fertile too. 1st egg was infertile, 2nd was broken. 2. Is there a way to assume that a hen is done layin
  10. It's the same guy here. So the standards for pink feet don't only apply to specific mutations it seems.
  11. From what I have been told, and read on several articles, Cinnamons, the Pieds, Inos, Fallows always have pink feet and most other mutations are supposed to have bluish grey coloured feet. I have Cinnamon Dilute, Full Bodied Greywing, Normal, Opalines, Greywing and a Dominant Pied in my flock. Only my male Opaline has a bluish grey feet. All others have Pink Feet! Cinnamon Dilute and the Dominant Pied are expected to have pink feet so that's all right. But then why do others have that? All my Girls: Cinnamon Dilute Yellowface 2 Skyblue, Greywing Cobalt and Opaline Mauve, wi
  12. I've been in doubt of Autumn's mutation since I've had her for around 4-5 months. She has both black and grey stripes...and even 2 of her throat spots appear quite dark, looks like black, or probably is black. She has Pink feet, which I was told cannot be present on a normal Greywing. So I wondered if she were a Cinnamon Greywing....as Cinnamons often have Pink Feet. I was told she's some sort of hybrid (ouch) as she doesn;t have the typical Grey tail quill like Greywings do. She has it clear with grey coloured tail feather.. At first I thought she was dirty, so appeared like and o
  13. A clearer picture. Her markings do appear brownish to me in the photo. however I haven't seen her personally yet. But her colour appears too light to be a Cinnamon Skyblue to me...so could she be Greywing as well? And I noticed that her primary flights appear almost clear? Is that common in Cinnamons or Cinnamon Greywings?
  14. I would like to make sure before I buy her. I notice she has pink feet...could she be cinnamon instead? But her tail looks greyish. This is the only picture I have of her now. I came across an article regarding a budgie who appears dilute with pink feet...and it says it's a Cinnamon? To buy the female, I must buy the Opaline male as well, otherwise the owner wouldn't sell her. This is a chick that they have given the owner. Is this a Greywing? If not, what is the father (above) split for?
  15. But that would mean those genes are recessive, and the common recessive genes need to be present in both the parents...so that could be unlikely, resulting of other mutations...but even if that happens, I won't mind as long as I do get the Dominant Pied Greywing Cobalts
  16. I always wanted a Greywing Dominant Pied Blue bird but those are so rare around here...mainly because people don't really breed Greywings much (Spangles are bred 60% of the time) So the birds I want to include in my plan are: Boys: Winter: Full Body Coloured Greywing Violet Cobalt Sky: Single Factor Dominant Pied Cobalt Girls: Autumn: Greywing Skyblue Aria: Double Factor Dominant Pied Opaline Cobalt At first I wanted to pair up Winter with Autumn to get Greywing babies, but yesterday I thought that the pair would only produce chicks that w
  17. Sky went through a lot for the last 3 months. It all started with me noticing his face all stained with his mucus and severe tail bobbing, abnormal droppings, 1.5 months after I had got him. Details Here He was quarantined, and soon Vanilla got the same symptoms...and they were both quarantined together. There aren't avian vets here. I did take all the birds to a vet who didn't seem to have any idea what could be wrong, he simply pretended I was giving them the right treatment. Vanilla died in an accident about 4 weeks ago, so Sky has been lonely ever since. I put him o
  18. Mucus coming from the nostrils is not good. Do you think there might be anything in her environment that could be irritating her respiratory passages, but not to the point of making her physically ill (yet)? Or she could be coming down with something and this is the first sign? I assume they got this from the Pet Store. She had that stained face when I bought her but usually all the budgies are just dirty in the pet stores, so I thought it'd go away after a few days. The other new budgie Autumn seems to be in a worse condition with tail bobbing and squeaking. They're both on antibiot
  19. This could be true. Or she could also be a double factor dominant pied, with or without the recessive pied. You probably won't be able to know for sure until you breed her. But keep an eye out for whether she develops one or two iris rings. She doesn't look like she is done with her molt, yet. Oh, she does seem to have a lot of staining above her cere. How is her health? (Droppings, vent clean or dirty, any respiratory symptoms?) She's definitely a pretty one! I thought the staining would go away, but it has been about 2 weeks and the staining hasn't disappeared. Her dro
