Default Mutation of some of my budgies :)

I'm hoping I have a dominant pied. I don't think I do though :-(

So anyway if I could be clear on some of these beautifuls mutations would be greatly appreciated


This one is Candy. I thought I knew what she is but I don't think I do. Sorry for bad photo quality.




I adopted Tommy a couple days ago. He is beautiful but I wonder what mutation he is?




This is Gabby she was hatched in Late October. I love her pastel green. but with each molt it unfortunately gets brighter :-(





This is Lilo I'm pretty sure she is just a recessive pied. But her sister(Stitch, RIP) was a Dominant Pied. Dies this give me the chance of breeding Dominant Pieds from her? I know know genetics can come from grandparents.




This is Angie. I like call her a twin. Not for real but her sister is the same. Exactly the same. I just want to know what her blue And green belly is about?



Thankyou for helping me.

Hi Bec, lovely colours.
I would say Candy is a YF2 recessive pied, maybe cinnamon?
Tommy maybe olive green spangle?
Gabby YF2 sky blue greywing?
I think dominant pied has to show, meaning they have to be dominant pied to have dominant pied chicks, they can't be split for it.
With Angie, does a blue belly mean they are split for blue?
These are all just my guesses, so I'll see what other say.

Thumbs up Angie

Angie is a half-sider. It's when an egg has two babies inside of different colors, but one basically "takes over" and murges with the other, creating a siamese twin mutation. This cannot be bred and it is purely out of luck that one can breed it, even though it's not terribly rare. In breeding it cannot be passed to it's young, I don't think. That's all I know about it. Hope I helped!

Candy looks like a YF2 cinnamons mauve RP. Tommy is an olive spangle. Lilo looks like a dark green recessive pied.

Gabby I'm unsure about. Was going to say YF sky greywing but her cheek patches are so bright. She may be a FBC greywing.

I have a light green chick who has a blue undercarriage like Angie. One if his parents is a violet cobalt. I've been told that greens split to blue will sometimes have blue around the vent and legs and also a green bird that carries violet. I think Angie is a normal dark green.

Hey thanks for your input :-) what is a FBC? Whatever Gabby is she is interesting!

Red face Acronyms

I agree! What does FBC mean? I know YF1 and YF2, and DF is double factor as in dark factors right? I'm really new, but I love mutations, so I'm trying to remember!
