I went to the birdmart today with my dad and we could not pass up on these two beautiful birds. They were extremely well priced. They are not tame. Any info on their mutation? The violet cinnamon is female right? I was told she was just about 4 mths old. What kind of babies would they have? Hoping Lindsey chimes in. I wanted to get some of hers but airline shipping rates are so high :/. For now I am "holding on to" these guys for my dad who has outdoor aviaries and untame birds. Not sure if I can do the breeding thing yet so I thought this was a safe way to give it a go.

The first several pics are of the violet cinnamons cere. She is about 4mths. Can you guys confirm it is a she?

Really beautiful birds.. Couldn't pass them up! I know how that is. They will be a gorgeous addition to your flock.. what does little miss Cozette think of the new guys?? Can she see or hear them?

kwatson 11-30-2014 08:43 PM

I think she can hear them, but she can't see them. These two aren't tame. So I doubt they will ever meet. But if they have babies in the future, maybe I keep a friend for Cozette.

Awww such a fine pair of cuties and they do look like a boy and a girl! Where did you get them and what will you name them? Very charming couple they are! :thumbsup:

No names yet :/

Congrat's....those are certainly beautiful bird's. Look's like a male and female to me. I wouldn't want to guess on mutation, if you bought them to breed, I think you will have some pretty babies....:)

tonic 11-30-2014 11:00 PM

They are lovely! The young hen is a Violet Cinnamon Opaline and the male is a Grey Normal.

As far as chicks go, if the male is not split for anything (very unlikely!) you would get Normals in Grey and Violet Grey. However, he is likely split for some recessive varieties so you could easily get more Cinnamon Opalines, Blues and Violets to say nothing of fun surprises!

They are huge birds! I haven't seen many English budgies in person.

FaeryBee 11-30-2014 11:48 PM

Amber,
Your new English budgies are gorgeous.
I love the Violet Cinnamon Opaline Female and your grey male is very handsome!
Are you planning to cage them with Cozette after Quarantine is over?

Thank you. Most likely not because they are not tame. Also if they're a bonded pair, I wonder how they'd tolerate Cozette. But mostly because they are not tame.

Juhi 12-01-2014 03:25 AM

Congratulations.... :)

Both of them are beautiful :)

BirdCrazyJill 12-01-2014 05:50 PM

They are so gorgeous!! Congrats on your new additions :)

i guess i never really considered tame and untame birds living together. anyway, my dad has avairies with untame birds that he sometimes breeds. i am kinda just holding on to these for him for now. i am not really sure i am cut out for that scene yet.

kcladyz 12-01-2014 06:03 PM

I want one. They are pretty little birdies!

Sproot 12-02-2014 07:31 AM

They are so stinkin cute! :love:

Cheesepusher 12-02-2014 11:52 AM

Gorgeous birds! I love your grey male with his massive ruff of throat spots.

Cody 12-02-2014 12:07 PM

Beautiful birds! Cozette may be a good influence on them when it comes to taming them. Only 2 of mine are tame but they have been a good influence on the others to the point that some of them will now sit on my head or jump onto my arm for a short time.

Mikey Did It 12-02-2014 02:24 PM

Gorgeous pair!! Congrats to you and your Dad!! You've got a great 'eye' for quality stock!

milipidi 12-02-2014 04:01 PM

You have two gorgeous wee birds.

Because the female is carrying the sex linked genes for opaline and cinnamon you won't get this visually transferring to the chicks. I am guessing she is a SF violet and he is SF Grey, in which case you will have a 50% violet, 25% grey and 25% sky. All the males will be split for opaline and cinnamon.

despoinaki 12-02-2014 04:09 PM

I love english budgies! They look so fluffy and cute! I really like the grey male! he is very handsome!

Is there any chance the babies would look like the female? It sounds like they could be violet like her but with black markings instead of the cinnamon? Is that correct?

milipidi 12-02-2014 09:19 PM

Yes, that is correct. Males and females will look like normal (black wing markings) in either sky, grey or violet. The males will be split for opaline and cinnamon, so their chicks could throw these mutations.

Unless he is split to cinnamon or opaline? I thought opaline was dominate, meaning only one parent would have to give it to the offspring for them to express it? Is cinnamon recessive then?

tonic 12-02-2014 11:35 PM

both cinnamon and opaline are sex-linked recessive. all sex-linked varieteis in budgies are recessive as far as I know.

so, though it is likely that the chicks would have normal markings like dad, it is very common in many places for normals to be split opaline so you may get opalines, or even cinnamons if he is split for cinnamon.

What does sex linked recessive mean? Sorry, lol
