Aisy was home sick from school with a headache today so she came with me to run some errands. We went out to the hardware store so that I could buy a new power saw (old one went kaput). On the way home we had to pass by one of our favourite pet shops (the one that Olympus came from), I had promised Ark some meal worms this week so we stopped by just for the worms and we saw this guy...
Aisy has been wanting a crested budgie for some time now so she's extremely happy but I'm crazy in love with his mutation.
Which I'm not sure about.. Is he grey cinnamon spangle? His one throat spot is very cinnamon-y
He isn't club rung so I'm not sure where he came or how old he is, looks to be young but not a baby from the cere. I think this is "the one" that I've been looking for to pair up with Olympus I'm so happy!
He is a beauty Allie. And he is a double crested. From the pictures he actually appears to be a Cinnamon Mauve and possibly a Dilute. Mauve is very similar to grey, but from the pictures there appears to be a slight pinkish tinge. Mauve comes through Violet factor birds.
Definitely show quality. The ring may have been removed by the breeder. Some breeders do this when selling birds to pet shops or he may have had a problem with the ring which necessitated its removal.
