What About This One...he Is?

Recommended Posts

Keep looking at picture after picture but it is next to impossible to find pics that

look just like my birds...

Trying to figure it all out...what is he?

This the pair ...she is a normal skyblue?? I think...but not even a guess about him or the babies.

Well he and the babies are greywing for starters, the colour's pretty like a very washed out skyblue, I haven't seen one that pale before.

Yes definately greywing in my humble opinion... as for colouring... the chicks I would say skyblue and the dad... I dont know... very diluted something :(Laughing out loud):

Dad looks like a dilute hence the softness in the offsprings which are like the others said grey wing

Dad I would state is a greywing as well, can we get a shot of his tail (or tell us the colour)

 

The hen is carring the greywing gene for the babies to appear as greywings as it is a recessive gene meaning it needs one from each parent to show.

He is a grey greywing , you should remember that grey is a modifying colour and can have three shades light medium and dark, My guess is that the grey was bred from a grey to a skyblue and so has a light shade of grey over sky. Also the greywing gene will wash out the colour and make it much lighter than a normal birds colour. It is difficult to breed full body coloured greywings.

a grey grey wing would appear more white than blue. As it is dominant over blue and (as a single factor) would have had a 50% chance of giving that gene to the offspring, any that did have a grey gene then would appear grey. I still stand by the fact he is a Blue greywing

I agree with Nerwin, a sky greywing will have the color effect shown on your budgie.
