I was in a bird outlet mid last week and saw what I believe to possibly be a very light mauve/pink mottled on a white base. tried to buy it but the guy turned down $200.00 It wasnt a particularly spectacular bird other than the unusual colour. If it is still there ill try for a picture.

Thinking it may have been a cross with a Bourkes parrot. A bit like a mule, sterile, Horse X donkey. Don't know if they are similar enough to be able to fill egg. Really just speculating.

 

​I believe that nothing is impossible, it just hasn't been done yet.

My 2 cents

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!

Have you considered that birds might change color because of food dyes? 😆

I doubt that's even possible.
