Help, With My Budgies Genetics

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have two male budgies of similar colours except one is a pied, I have a fair idea of mutations, but wanted second opinions? They both have yellow faces :)

 

Thanks!!

I will have a crack at this

 

one on the right Cobalt Dominant Pied Opaline, one next to it is a white spangle(not sure)?

 

bottom one is Yellow face Opaline Greywing

It can be hard to tell a bird's mutations from photos that don't show its back and wings. The top right bird seems to be a dominant pied yellow face mutant one sky blue. (Not opaline) The white one next to it is impossible to tell from that photo. Something with a diluted body and dark throat spots, though.

 

Bottom cock is a normal yellow face mutant two sky blue, with possible violet factor. (Not opaline or greywing)

Hey,

 

Thanks guys. the white hen is actually a lacewing - with the cinnamon wings :)

I'll see if I can get some better pictures of the birds :)

You know, I thought her throat spots looked cinnamon, but kind of hard to say for sure from that distance. ;)

Hi, here are some more photos of my birds, also I have figured out how to edit them, I think to the proper size :)

 

Oh and I have added a better shot of the lacewing too!

So what do you think about the two males?

I'm keeping my two answers the same, except that for the normal cock, I still don't think he looks opaline, but I do see a little color on his wings, so maybe he is. Or else he has what is called "opalescence", which sometimes they have, even when they are not opaline.
