Hi everyone, I got some new budgies recently and I'm not sure on the mutation with this one. I was thinking maybe dilute? I have a couple of greywings and she doesn't really look the same to me but I don't know. Thanks.

 

She's the one on the left.

She has bright body colour and bright cheek patches, might be a full body colour greywing

Her body colour is definitely brighter compared to my other greywings and she hasn't had her first moult yet and they usually get brighter after that don't they. So does that make full body colour greywing most likely?

Possibily but many pure greywings these days are also showing full body colour intensity. Where as a full bodycolour greywing is technically a greywing split for clearwing. Test mating to a known dilute will give you the full answer.

 

If you use a dilute you would get 50% greywing/dilute and 50% clearwing/dilute.

 

If it's a straight greywing you will only get greywing/dilute.
