Default Our Growing Family

I have been reading so much incredible information on this site over the past few months, joined the forum a month ago and am finally going to introduce my little flock.

Two months ago we had our first two little boys join the family. Kids decided to call them Snoopy (white) and Pluto (yellow and green). They are so entertaining and have taken to pellets and green leafy vegetables like champs. Pluto is finishing up his first big molt and they are both starting to regrow their flight feathers after having been clipped extremely short.





On Monday, two new baby boys (?) joined our happy family and are currently under quarantine on the other side of the house. So far they have been very quiet but are eating and drinking with a few chirps here and there. Their names are Blue and Astro (grey).



I would be so grateful if someone could educate me on their mutations and confirm that I have four males. Thank you for being such a wonderful resource!

Welcome to the forums and the ever exciting world of budgie ownership!
It's great you have been taking advantage of the vast information found here at Talk Budgies!

Now onto your budgies, the first one is a boy and he is a sky blue recessive pied budgie, he has other mutations mixed in, he is likely a dilute.
A photo showing his back would be helpful.
Your second budgie boy is a light green pied. Due to his markings and the deep purplish colour on his cere I'm unsure if he is a recessive pied or a combination pied (mix of dominant with recessive pied).

As for your latest arrivals, the budgie on the left while it's a bit far away, it seems like it has a uniform pinkish coloured cere, if that is the case, then he is also a boy. He is a sky blue normal budgie.
The last little fellow is a boy, I think he is a mauve greywing budgie.

Hi there! to the forums and the update, too Astro, Blue, Snoopy and Pluto are very handsome little boys!

Aluz has given good information with regards to gender and mutation

You've definitely joined a great forum and there definitely is a lot of helpful information around here. I'm glad it's been useful to you so far! Keep on reading through the forums and if you have any questions after reading through everything please do ask as we'd love to help

I can't wait to hear and see lots more of them in the future!

Cheers!

Hi there Little Buds!
Its so nice to have you here and that you're enjoying our little community. I too have learned so much here!

Your flock is darling!! Blue looks very similar to my boy Geronimo. And Pluto resembles my girl Nova.
I just love all of your budgies.

I agree with how entertaining they are. If I could afford it, I would buy them a bunch of toys every day, haha!!
For all the joy they give me, they deserve it (I actually buy them new toys every two weeks hehehe!)

Thank you for sharing, so good to meet you

Thanks so much for the warm welcome! I have become a bit of a budgie toy addict as well .

Aluz thank you for identifying their genetic mutations- it is fascinating! Here is Snoopy's back as requested- totally white with the same sky blue between his wings.



As for the uniformity of Blue's cere, it continues to play tricks on me. Maybe he's still a tad young?

Welcome to Talk Budgies!

Since you indicate you've been using the forum's resources already, I won't send you all the links I usually attach in my first message.

Your four little budgie boys are just as cute as they can be!
I'm looking forward to seeing lots more pictures of them in the days to come.

All your babies are charming! I especially like the look of Snoopy (edit: sorry, mistake, meant Astro! Not that Snoopy isn't too...) -- he's a really distinguished fellow and subtle about it too.
Looking forward to more pictures

Oh, and a big welcome to TB from me too!
