My breeder friend got a strangely strong colored yellofaces or greenblue budgies that had a lot of blue in their body feathers. The mother is a yellowface, but the coloring in the face isn't close to the babies and the body feathers doesn't have green coloring in it. The father is normal green.

 

Can anyone tell the coloring of the bluegreen budgies?

 

Here are some of the chicks:

looking at chick one He appears to be a godenface. Mum could be a GF rather than a YF or Dad could be split that gene.

The last chick she looks normal green or dark green.

You mean that the chick one is df goldenface? I just wonder why the depth of the color is so different.

I wouldn't say double factor. the depth could be due to a dark factor or it is a hidden gene from the father. I would like bigger shots of the parents as golden face is dominant over yellow face

The first chick looks like it's green split for blue. Check under wing (butt?) , if its blue then you have a yellowface and if it's green that will mean your budgie is green.

The fist chick is a goldenface NOT green split blue (which is visually a green bird and a green bird only!!!)

 

Working through the genetic options and looking at the birds parents I'd suggest that your hen is a combination yf & gf and the father is a green split blue. Although gf is "technically" dominant over yellow face, in reality both modify the other to some degree so a combo will look different to either. These are being bred in numbers now that the ANBC has introduced the Golden Face as a national variety so we are seeing more and more what the combination of golden face and yellow face produces and it's something in between the 2.

 

So the 3 chicks would possibly be: Golden face split blue (visually goldenface), yellow face split blue (visually yellow face, green split either golden face or yellow face.

 

It may be that the father is split for golden face but then you would not get a visually yellow face baby only greens and golden faces (apart from a 25% chance of a combo again so it may be that as chick 3...)

 

A few options there I suppose.
