His body color is very much like the picture.

the bird you posted is a type2 yellow face with a blue body.however the yellow diffuses all over the body gvin it a slightly greenish tinge
i am sory but genetics of yellowface are very complicated.
only a breeder who has seen birth of this type or budgie expert cn say clearly

The bird in the photo is a sky blue, opaline, sf yellowface II :) is he your bird? If so, getting more like him should,be very easy with any sky blue normal or opaline female :)

If he is not yours, the easiest way to produce more chicks exactly like this would be to have a sky or cobalt blue pair (no mauves if you want a sky blue, as all the chicks would be at least cobalt with a mauve parent) with the male being an opaline, and at least one of the pair must also be a sf yellowface II.

This pair would give you all female sky or conalt opalines, and some would also be sf yellowface like the male in the picture :) Does that make sense?

Thanks, yes he is my bird. He came from a shelter so I don't know his age and without knowing that I would not want to breed him, is there an age for a male that would be considered not safe to breed?

If you are unsure of his age, it is very wise not to breed him :) It is less dangerous to breed a slightly older male than a female, since it is the females that tend to have a greater risk of egg binding/prolapse as they get older. I would not breed a male past 5 personally, and unless he has a closed leg band with his hatch year it would be impossible to know if he was 1 year or 10 given his physical appearance unfortunatly.

Since he is not the best breeding candidate, I would set out to find a pair with the mutations I listed above :) Do you have any other birds currently?

Thanks for the info. Yes, I have other birds, 7 total but there is only 1 that I am sure of the age, he is 6 months old now. This is Lenny when he was about 9 weeks. I am really not sure I want to breed, I would never forgive myself if anything happened to the parents as a result, however I do have an excellent avian vet that I use and fortunately is only 10 minutes from my house.
