Just as shown below - remove the spaces though. Or ..... in the "quick reply' box, you should see a thing that looks like a stamped envelope, which is " insert image". You can click on that and just copy/paste in the link and it will put the IMG and bracket thingys in for you.

If they are related can they be like that.. Completely different colors if body.. And cere.
What would happen if they are related
Im worried now
So is my male ressesive?
Check again those clear pics and tell me please

He looks like a combination recessive/dominant, or possibly a heavily marked or df dominant pied split to recessive pie to me if he has no iris rings. Many birds that are split to recessive pied do not have iris rings, and with theses birds sometimes only breeding will let you know for sure what they truly are if they are another pied mutation. Can we get a pic of him from behind?

If you can post some pics of your hen in natural lighting we can tell you her full mutation, from the pic you posted she appear to have the color of a cinnamon rather than grey green, and she is definatly not a normal olive nor opaline

Looking at the other three pictures, she doesn't appear to be opaline... But her stripes are very light, yet they don't seem to be quite brown, so I don't know if I'd say she's a cinnamon quite yet. Maybe a cinnamon with a grey factor since her body colour is too dark to be just a cinnamon and her largest tail feather is black instead of blue.
It just occurred to me now that I forgot about double factor dominant pieds! They don't have normal cere colours and being split for recessive pied would explain the lack of iris rings. It really seems like you'll just have to breed them and see what the chicks look like to determine the parental mutations. If all the chicks are dominant pied, you know it was double factor dominant pied, if some of them are dominant pied, it could have been single factor dominant pied, if none of them look at all like the father, it was probably recessive pied. But even then it's still tough to tell since he could be a combination pied and you could get some dominant pieds from him but no recessive pieds.
Good luck!

If the breeding was successful hopefully
Ill gladly update photos for the chicks
Till now theyre just greatly bonded
I saw them one mating but it wasnt successful
Btw guys one more question
My female as you saw the pics has a slightly white cere
Do u think for her mutation its normal?
Or she isn't in the breeding condition?

It is important to go off more than just wing color Cinnamons can range from nearly black, to so light of a grey that they would appear to be a greywing according to the color. Look at her cheek patches... Do you see how much more they are diluted than the male? He has non diluted geek patches, where as hers appear to be the light lavender of a cinnamon

Also as far as body color is concerned with Cinnamons, their body color can vary greatly Cinnamon is a diluting mutation which effects whatever else the bird happens to carr. A cinnamon light green will be much lighter than a cinnamon dark green or cinnamon olive, and a cinnamon olive with a violet factor would be very dark in body color

I can only see the first picture, the rest of the links only take me to a login screen for the whole album so I am unable to see the true color of her tail, but an dark green or olive cinnamon would have a very dark tail that would look almost black in depth of color in poor lighting Also a cinnamon grey green would have silvery blue cheek patches, rather than the lavender she appears to have in the pics. Here are some examples of what I mean, compare the grey green cinnamon on the left with the violet opaline connamon on the far right: https://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebl...gies.htmlClear photos in natural lighting would make it possible to confirm their true shade

You can not see it because it is not there, she is not an opaline

Yes, she is not in breeding condition. All females have the same white/blue color cere when they are not in breeding condition, it is only the males that have changes in the cere depending in the mutation

You mentioned that your female has very light iris rings... This ia a sign that she is still very young and not even mature enough to breed just yet If the male never develops iris rings it will be harder to tell his true age, but the best thing you can do for them is to hold off encouraging them to breed and give them some time to settle in and mature during this time you can condition them properly https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=83555 and ten they will be all ready to have a successful clutch when you do give them a nestbox!

Like I just said, after looking at the other pictures, she isn't an opaline. It just looked like she was at first glance in the poor lighting.

That's very informative and good to know! But I thought that cinnamon didn't affect the body colour, only the head and wings of the budgie, I thought the darkest they could get was a cinnamony tinge to the body feathers... I'm great with genetics but I'm still new at identifying mutations, especially combinations of mutations!
