Thanks for the welcome, yes the violet clearwing is my favourite bird, but clearwings are a very small part of my stud, mainly normals, opalines, cinnamons and dom. pieds.

Hi Clearwing! :D

 

I've read the name "Geoff" on here before, and it is always used with respect and awe. Hmmm...

Well, everyone seems so excited to get your input, that I have decided to kill two birds with one stone... (um, am I allowed to say that here?)

 

Anyway, I'm working on posting all my birds for color/ mutation i.d., so I will start with Finnie. Please click here .

 

Again, welcome, it's great to have you here!

Hi, its nice to be welcome, the bird in question is a greywing, not a clearwing. One photo shows quite clearly the tail and the quill is dark grey which means she is greywing. A clearwing has a neutral tail quill. Hope that clears it up for you. Clearwing

yes that just clearly shows im wrong with my guess ...lol :D:D

Grey is defined as half way between black and white, so what is that? With greywings as with all colours of budgerigar they come in a range of shades ie light green, dark green, olive or sky blue, cobalt, violet. I believe the wing colour is the same in greywings, this one just happens to be light. clearwing

Welcome clearwing :what: I didn't understand all that you said about tail quill colours up above (haven't done the budgie thing for very long) so could you possibly take a look at my question regarding one of my birds? It generated quite a bit of fun along the way with two sparring camps :) You can read it here

 

Also, this next picture is a new bird I got yesterday...10 weeks old. The picture doesn't show the true colours (sorry, it's winter here so need a flash)...very pale yellow face and pale yellow sporadically on the body, pale powder blue where you see blue. obviously a pied....but it's the wings I'm interested...such a pale grey...greywing, clearwing or something else. As you can see, I'm still learning and have a long way to go!

 

My new bird

 

Unfortunately, the place I got this bird clips all their wings so hope that doesn't make it too much harder to tell.

The tail quill is the hard centre stripe in the tail feather. IN answere to your question re the light green, it is difficult from the photos but he could be a clearwing or the product of a clearwing mated to a greywing, unfortunately I haven't had much success with cocks that go brown in the cere, they are normally infertile, let me know how you go if you breed with him.

Thankyou Clearwing so the light colour wings ago on the show as why I am asking is because I actually like the lighter shade :D very pretty, aggghh typical of a female breeder to say that :what: most men would be saying. :)

Aww, GB. I wouldn't "egg-nore" you! You have lots of good information that helps me learn things. In fact, it was your comment and the way the others responded to it that gives me a lot to compare to figure it out! :D

DF, your new bird is LOVELY! I can't wait to see if that yellow spreads through more. :) I don't think the wing clip matters. I bet when they grow back, they will be pure white, as she is a dom pied. I am also guessing that her tail is white, too, is it not? I haven't learned tail colors, yet, only cheek patch, and so far, I don't think that is helping me much! :D But I will ask anyway, in real life, are the cheek patches paler, or brighter than your other, normal birds? (One thing I can identify, is that the cheek patches have white areas from the pied mutations! Yay for me, finally!)
