What do you mean one colour...? Do you mean two green budgies together...? Are you talking about show or pet type budgies too...?

 

Why do I ask because all of this matters as to who we breed with what...

 

Example, show budgies we breed two budgies together that would breed us show quality young... The cock and hen would have to cancel out each others faults... One with short mask other with long mask...

 

And there are some varieties we do not breed together at all...

It all depends on their genetics... When you say Yellow Birds, are they Lutino's or DF Spangles? What were their parents?

Example for Lutino's (yellow budgies) if you bred the two together you get Lutino young... But Lutino come in different shades of yellow too... so you may end up with some dull yellow and really deep golden yellows... You could use the Grey greens to a Lutino to give them more features, buff, feather directions, etc...

 

Because you are talking about all varieties there is so much info for it all you would have to read some of the other posts available on the forum to learn more...

 

Hope this helps... :)

Dunno what your sorry for but theres no need to be sorry :D I didn't get offended by anything you said. :D now I'm trying to figure out what I was meant to get upset with... :D

 

okay so they are both Lutino's...

 

That being the case, I wouldn't breed lutino x lutino, unless they are a top notch pair, I'd be pairing them up to some Grey Greens like LittleBudgie2005 said in order to increase size and other features...

 

Hope this helps.

I'm no expert when it comes to genetics, as my quiz results show but from what I've read it can result in smaller offspring. Not what show breeders want...

Thats not what I was asking....it seems they are lutinos. I was asking if you are very sure you have a male and female as it can be hard to tell with lutinos. If you arent too sure we can help.

If they are a female and male Lutino and bred together you would only get lutino's... But that doesnt take into any splits they may have... Splits are hidden genetic's they dont show on the outside...Lutino's are hard to sex until they are mature enough to breed... As Lutino's have a gene that stop all black markings showing on them and also effects their cere (nose) colour... Photo's would be a great help to us if you need to confirm that they are male and female... :)Has she breed for you or someone else...?

Has the hen been with the same cock both times? It would help if we knew the outcomes of the chicks from previous clutches.

 

The way to tell if the cock is a cock, His cere (fleshy part above nose) should be pink or a purple colour. If both of their noses are brown, you have two hens :D

A male Lutino should have a Pink or purple cere. Hen should have brown. If your "lutino" has a blue cere, he may be a pied , check him for any green, or he may be a double factor spangle. Check the eyes again, because they will not be red unless he is a Lutino
