Default Turquoise Budgie

What would/ could one breed to obtain a turquoise budgie?

And if one had two turquoise budgies, would they breed true? (would all their babies be 100% turquoise)

From what I have read *I think* the turquoise is caused by skyblue, df yellowface 2 mutation. Am I right? But what would one need to have to get that combo?

Thanks!!!

Hi there

I'm no expert, but I think what you've been told
about the turquoise budgies matches what I've
heard. You need a sky blue budgie with the YFII
added to the mix. Another sky blue would keep
the blue at the same intensity, versus the dark
factor in the cobalt blue. With a little luck,
the yellow will alter the blue to that lovely
turquoise/teal color

Somebody, please jump in and correct me if I'm
wrong?

So, if I had 2 birds with the turquoise colour, then their chicks would all be turquoise?

Thanks!!

I am a little confused by what you are calling a turquoise budgie, as I haven't heard the term before but .... Here is my Sky Blue YFII Single Factor and yes it is the same bird :0 My understanding is that a sky blue YFII Double factor will continue to have the sky blue body with the yellow spreading predominately on the wings.

Ocean - 4 months


Ocean - Now


As you can see because he is a YFII the bleeding of the yellow effects the sky blue turning it various shades of green. Which can change after each molt, hence on TB we sometimes refer to them as our chameleon birds.

From my understanding of genetics, YFII is a dominant gene. Here is Lindsay's Breeding Expectations Guide for YFII.

Hope that helps.

Wow! that is so fascinating Milipidi! I had no idea they could change their colouring so dramatically with each moult. It does not look like the same bird at all.... are you sure he wasn't switched on you?? lol

Thanks so much for sharing that. It is really good information to know.

The colour change is pretty amazing. I must admit at a glance it is hard to tell between him and GreenBird, my normal green. It does making jolting time more interesting though as we find out what colour he will be this time.

If you breed two turquoise budgies ( sf yellow face II )you will get about 50% sf yellow face II. The others will be normal and df yellow face II. Df yellow face II looks similar to sf yellow face I. I have 2 of these df yellow face II which are brother and sister which confused me because the parents are both sf yellow face II and I thought they would look like the parents.

By "turqoise budgies", do you mean blue yellow factor II? The yellow can mingle with the blue, turning it a turquoise colour, so I'm guessing that's what you mean. If you bred two of them, I'm sure you'd get plenty more of them! But I doubt it would be 100% turquoise budgies, there'd be a few "normal" mutations in there too... Hope this helps ~Amber

Thanks Buddyboy and Amber - that was exactly the information I was looking for; the percentages and probabilities of getting more sf yellowface II babies from 2 parents with sf yellowfaceII

Thanks for your help!
