Default Sweet Sooty and Sweep

When I was a little girl my nana had 2 budgies - Sooty and Joey. I always wanted my own Sooty and Sweep - and I collected them today. Anyone who remembers the TV show, will know they had a panda friend Sue - so all I need now is my camper van lol

They are parent reared but handled daily and so sweet.

You know when things are meant to be, - when I sent a reply to the ad the babies had no feathers and I had no idea what colours they would be - so feeling lucky that they are yellow and grey.

Not only that, today is the first day they were allowed to leave - and it would have been my nana's birthday.

And one more thing - this morning, in between taking my son to work, washing and sorting things out, I put TV on and guess which show was on? Yep Sooty and Sweep - and I haven't seen it for years. Still can't quite get over that.

They are both cinnamon, from different nests.

Sooty looks much more yellow in real life - could she be a Texas clearbody? The brown markings are a rich chocolate brown. Sooty's mum is lutino and dad is a normal olive or grey green.

Sweep is a lovely pale grey, getting darker on his back towards his tail. His cinnamon markings are paler. His mum is grey cinnamon and dad a normal sky blue. He had a brother and sister - both grey, one cinnamon and one normal.

Anyway any help with mutations and sexing would be great.

We are now a 2 cage budgie family

They're gorgeous As we know, Sooty is a girl and I think Sweep is a gorgeous little boy

I love the story behind their names, I guess it really was meant to be!

EDIT: And I think Sooty is a TCB

Cuties! Sooty looks like an opaline to me, but someone more experienced with color mutations might be able to give you a better answer haha. I'm very partial to grey budgies, I might just have to steal Sweep! Lol

Congrat's....Beautiful bird's.....I'd be tempted to say they both look like boys to me, but I have already ate some crow today on the gender guessing scene...

Sooty and Sweep are adorable and their "story" is precious.
Congratulations on your sweet little friends.

Love everything about Sooty and Sweep... Love the buds, love the names, love the story. It certainly is meant to be. You will have so much fun.

OH my goodness, I used to watch that show when I was little. I loved it and they certainly do fit their names LOL. I am so happy they have so much meaning and love behind their names and coming into your life many happy times ahead I am sure .
