Hey everyone! Rhaine, the newest addition to the budgie flock, is currently going through a molt. Nothing unusual about that, but her feathers are coming in different colors than they were before! Is she still a dominant pied mauve opaline spangle yellowface type 2? I've only had one yellowface before, and she was a type 2, but I do not remember the yellow being so vibrant. Do you think she will turn completely yellow/dark green? Or stay speckled like this?
Here is a baby picture of Rhaine, taken in January:
Here are pictures of her taken last week:
...and these were taken today:
What do you think?
PS-Sorry all of the pictures are sideways - photobucket isn't cooperating!
Budgies Zu, Keiko, Savvy, Pagosa, Krickett and Rhaine
It's so interesting isn't it!! You never know what you'll wake up to the next morning hehe
Pitchii was a yellow face as a baby but lost ALL of her yellow with her first moult! Ha, I was so surprised..
It's quite unusual I believe but goes to show there are no guarantees that the color you 'chose' will be what you end up with
Your baby is gorgeous and unique! x
Before I input, I must say that those photographs are very nice, exceptional even, showing off the budgie's colors very well and no blur whatsoever! (Sorry, but I'm enthusiastic about photography, for it's a passion of mine)
Now, I'd say that's one of the prettiest parakeets I've ever laid my two eyes on! By golly, is she stunning!? Rhaine has a gorgeous yellow face, and I love how she has patch-like splats of color on her wings and back!
I fancy mutations, but I've never witnessed such a design as this! Has anyone the term???
