Default Rainbow Budgie, Hopefully :)

I recently picked up this beautiful male, and I'm hoping that I can breed him to get a true rainbow budgie.

Lindsey has already labeled him as a Cobalt, sf golden face, opaline, sf spangle.
He looks too deep a yellow to be a sf yellowface II...

What type of female would I need to breed him to, to get a true rainbow budgie....if that's even possible with his mutation?



Thanks all !!!

Your bird is a single factor goldenface skyblue opaline spangle

To produce more rainbow budgie chicks...pair with female double factor goldenface cobalt opline spangle or double factor goldenface cobait opaline.

To produce a colourful purple-bodied golden-faced rainbow chicks...pair with a female violet-cobait opaline spangle or a violet-cobait opaline.

Check your bird's crown, if it is lemon yellow or too pale to be darker richer yellow, it means it's not a goldenface, as goldenface have darker richer yellow colour on crown, lore, mask.

Last year I had paired two pairs of male single factor yellow-faced type 2nds to female double factor yellow-faced type 2nds, and their chicks are both single & double factors and are all yellow-faced type 2nds.

I had a beautiful male single factor yellow-faced type 1st opaline spangle...see frist photo, and female single factor violet-cobait opaline...see the 2nd photo.

3rd photo of the one or two future chicks will look like this photo of single factor yellow-faced 1st single factor violet-cobait opaline spangle.

I had bred a female single factor yellow-faced type 1st single factor violet-cobait normal budgie,


from her parents...father: single factor yellow-faced type 1st cobait normal, and mother: single factor violet-cobait opaline.

1st photo: 1-month-old female single factor yellow-faced type 1st single factor violet-cobait normal budgie.

2nd photo: with father (on feeding hopper, eating)

3rd photo: Mother violet-cobait opaline.

4th photo: The purplish-blue-bodied bird to left of this photo is a 6 month-old female single factor yellow-faced type 1st single factor violet-cobait normal budgie, in mostly 1st adult plumage, still in moult. Her body feathers are bluish purple.

You wouldn't be able to get true rainbows from this guy unless he's split for clearwing, unfortunately the best you would get is offspring that are split for clearwing if you paired him with a clearwing hen.

Thanks for the tips guys!

Unfortunately, I don't have any clearwing hens. I do have a cobalt opaline clearflight hen, who is also pied (but doesn't show in any pics). She's as close as I can get. LOL

I agree with Allie, to have a true rainbow you will need to eliminate the sf spangle, and add either a full body greywing or clearwing to the mix. Adding pied with the. Hen you mentioned will unfortunately just got you farther from a true rainbow.

If you can find a clearwing or full body greywing hen that would be the best start if you want true rainbows

Thanks Lindsey!

I'm so close, yet so far! LOL. My little disabled girl is a greywing. Don't worry, I'd never ever ever even think about letting her breed, that's just to right!

So I'm now on the lookout for a clearwing or full body Greywing....my husband my just kill me.

Does it matter if she's green or blue series?

Blue would be best but if all you can find is a green (which is the situation I'm in at the moment) it's still a start!
