Down feathers
 
Hi members, I have noticed some of my chicks have a very snow white down feathers and others have a light grey colour down... does this mean anything in any way? All chicks from same parents in same clutch...Thanks :)

Yes it does and it has to do with the different colour mutations.
Budgies of normal mutations will have the greyish down feathers, while for example Ino (albino/lutino) budgies, greywing, opalines, pied budgies will have the white down feathers.

Thank you so much... I have done so much research and could not find an answer :)
