Default Do I have what it takes?

Do I currently have the birds it would take for a rainbow? If not what do I need to add?

A true rainbow is a blue based budgie with opaline, clearwing and yellowface You have two components of the rainbow mutation I can, which is opaline and blue.

You will need in addition a yellowface and clearwing or fullbody greywing, unless by chance some of your birds are already split for these things... which is impossible to know without pedigrees on them

Are you talking about pairing up your birds and their genetics would produce a rainbow? Or do you mean just lining them up makes a rainbow? Because you have some very pretty budgies!

I will be receiving their pedigrees soon and can update here so which is the opaline? Sorry I am such a noob I will check out your site to see what a yellow face and clearwing are.

A rainbow is a composite bird and one of the hardest mutations to consciously produce. Breeders in ABS or BAA may be able to give you a few tricks. See their web sit and ask for help from any breeder with rainbow experience. I have had many '3's' But getting that 4th in a competitive show bird is hard.
Dan Schultes in Iowa breeds them. See contact info for breeders/board members on BAA site. I currently have a yellow face, opaline, sky white dilute that could fool a novice but it does not have clear wings. nor is it a grey wing
It was a tantalizing gift as a chick as the line that produced it had it hidden.
Sunny Sky is a favorite of visitors and has fooled more than a few wishing for a rainbow.

Best wishes,

Jo Ann

Looks like a lovely cobalt dominant pied.

This is what a clearwing looks like:

Blue



Green

Is it the solid color from head down the back that makes them a clearwing?
