Members' Dilute Budgies - Pictures

Recommended Posts

I thought it might be interesting to start a topic for each mutation of budgie and have members post a picture of their budgies that have that mutation. The post should just include the picture (a full body shot if possible), name of budgie, sex, colour, and could mention if the budgie has other mutations. I think these posts might be helpful to new budgie owners in learning mutations if they see a variety of birds with the same mutation.

 

Mods, if this should be under mutations, please feel free to move.

 

So I'll start with

Wonderful idea!! I believe that this little one is a dilute and I think it is a male but am not sure yet. No matter what...I have named s/he Tammy.

Now I was told that my bird Wilma (below), that looks just like these (above), is a green clearwing hen... but she looks like this one if not lighter.... how are these dilutes and mine is clearwing? The first picture above actually looks like a greywing to me?... so can someone help me and point out what is different?

This hen is a Dilute and I wouldn't be surprise if she was Cinnamon also. It would explain why the markings are more diluted than usual plus the cheek patch is not as intense as it should be but that could be the photo.

 

A Clearwing body colour is around 90% of a Normal.

I thought so RIP.

So she is a Green Dilute Hen? Is that the full proper name of her make up?

Generally I like to use the mutation name first followed by the colour. She looks Light Green in the photo. If I was to record her the way I did my budgies it would be Dilute Light Green.

Can she be both a clearwing and a dilute or is that not possible?

The Greywing, Clearwing and Dilutes are a mutation which are genetically know as multiple alleomorphs. In other words it is one gene that has mutated a number of times. They have an order of dominance. Other alleomorphic budgies are 1. the Texas Clearbody, Ino group and the 2. the Goldenface & Yellowfaces Mutant 1 & 2, Group

 

Greywing is dominant over Dilute. Visually such a bird would look Greywing.

Clearwing is dominant over Dilute. Visually the bird would look Clearwing.

Greywing and Clearwing are co-dominant to each other and in combination give the Full Body Coloured Greywing. It can also be written as Greywing/Clearwing.

No it's not possible to show show both mutations. You can get a clearwing that is split for dilute but if the bird is dilute it can't also be clearwing because dilute is recessive to clearwing
