Default Mutation and Name help please

All female, and currently hoping that if they pretend they are statues they won't be eaten. (Actually, when I just checked again, they have moved. A bit.)

The mutations are primarily for fun, but also so that I know if any of them have irises that will stay black. One has a fully formed ring, others don't and one was not happy about my trying to stare at her eye so I stopped. Poor dears.

I don't know whether or not they are at all bonded in the pairs they are sitting in in the photo's or if that is just chance. (Wish I knew--I have a lot of housing options and if I did I could take that into consideration).

I don't think they have names, which means I get to name them They (the rescue) gets impatient if I take too long however (it holds up their adoption listings). Here they are:





Hmm. The blueish one in the first two photos is grayer than she appears in these pictures. I'll try again later, but I think I've freaked them out enough for the moment.

I can be of no help whatsoever with the mutations

They're gorgeous, Leah!!

Of the first two girls, the green one is a light green SF dominant pied normal, and the other is a mauve opaline sf dominant pied budgie.

The other two girls are sky blue YF II normal recessive pied and sky blue normal.

In order of green, mauve, rec. pied and sky blue, I would name them

Reyna, Cassie, Fiona and Jen-- those were the names that seemed to fit!

I can't wait to near more about them!

Which of these will develop iris rings?
I cannot use Jen since I have a Jenna at the moment. Belle? They have already gone to bed for the night, so I cannot ask her. Fiona definitely approved, however.

Ha! I did not know that! While I find it interesting, they declined to be named after mammals with cloven hooves. I pointed out that those particular ones could fly, but they said that they were more graceful.

Everyone should except for the recessive pied
What about Callie, Bree, or Reya?

Oh, I think Reyna and Ms. Mauve are both young then, from what I can see, at any rate. And Fiona has faint bars on her head--does that mean she is young as well? I'll try to get a better picture when she allows it.

Fiona escaped during the Great Cage Transfer, and she seems so pleased with herself that I'm letting her stay out for a bit. For the time being, they're moving into half of a double flight cage in what is now my budgie room (they have already been quarantined).



Ms. Mauve and Ms. Sky Blue both like the name Bree. I figure I have at least until tonight to figure out the names

They are really doing quite well--preening, playing with their toys, etc.
