Hey!

So over the last week or so, some of you have probably noticed I've been asking the genders about various birds on the forums as I was desperately looking for a female blue pied hen, well I'm pleased to announce I have found her! ... and she may have came with a few friends!

Okay so here we go, here she is...

Also mutation guesses and age guesses would be appreciated!

The Pied Hen: - The breeder thinks she's around 10 months.









Next is a Pied Cock: - Breeder said around 7 Months? Him and the Hen above are paired.







Here's a picture the breeder sent me of the Cock and Hen above,

]

Annnnnnnnnnd finally, I fell in love with a chick... He's around 8 Weeks old!







so what do you guys think?

Congratulations on your beautiful new additions!!
I can take a guess at their mutations, but be aware I may not be completely accurate on them.
Your new girl, I believe she is a sky blue dominant pied greywing. She may be violet too.
Your boy, I think is a light green double factor dominant pied budgie.
The cute chick appears to be a cobalt violet dominant pied spangle budgie.

It's more difficult to give a good estimate on age regarding your oldest budgies because they already have their adult plumages. Looking at the iris rings on the eyes may also be compromised, because it's possible in your girl's case that she has recessive pied genes making her eyes fully black as they seem to be.
The first pic of your boy, I can see the iris on one eye. I'd say both are under 1 year old, I'm sorry I can't be more accurate than that.

The age on the chick sounds about right to me.

Thanks so much for all that Aluz, you have been a massive help once again!

I did think of a few ideas for all of them, I was thinking Paddy for the Green Male, and I like Apollo maybe for the chick! I can't think of what I thought for the hen though!

I just thought, what about Astrid, short for Asteroid

I seem to have a space theme going on here, Comet, Apollo and now Asteroid... I do love the nights sky though!

Does anyone else have any ideas on the mutations or does everyone agree with Aluz? ?
