Default budgie colors

Ive been breeding for a while and this has been a good last few months for me. i have a flight cage full of beutiful babies of all sorts of colors and mutations. heres my question. I wasnt into trying to strive for certain colors but as of recent i am. but my parent birds produce colored babies that by all rights they shouldnt produce. i have a normal green paired with a opaline green and they produce an all white baby with one blue leg. and then there is my favorite pair. female blue full body greywing with a light green male and all they produce is lutinos. i finally got a chick from this clutch that was a different color but guess what. Its a white pied with a turquoise belly. Any ideas? Or do other breeders have this happen. as i said i wasnt into trying to produce colors cause my birds throw so many colors anyways but is there a way to predict what im gonna get.

Hmm, very interesting.

Quite often, it comes down to the grandparents. Your greens sound like they likely had blue or split blue parents, which is how you would have gotten a blue chick. They also must be split for recessive pied to produce the blue leg marking.

Your next pair is very interesting. I would say that your male is split ino. The lutino chicks, have they been of both genders? If they're only female, then the male being split ino explains that. Again, the parents must be split pied.

I've had a couple of cases like this - two yellow faced parents produce a white based chick, along with a recessive pied. It was explained by the fact that the father has no iris rings, and therefore is likely a DF spangle masking pied.

Budgies can be so very confusing!

The pair with the lutinos, yes all the lutinos have been females. also that same mamma bird i had paired to another blue full body greywing and they produced a very pale mauve full body grey wing. i paired that daughter with a light green normal and one chick is normal green and other is dominant pied sf white and grey. which made me super happy cause ive been wanting a grey.
budgies are confusing! Im just gonna be happy with whatever baby I get and not worry about color.

The pair that produced all INOs would have been one of those clutches that pop up now and again where all the babies are the same sex. I heard of one once where a clutch of 8 were all females!
