Default Budgie Color & Mutation Guide

Well I've been working on this for several months now, and finally have it online. I still have a few minor things to add, like credits etc.. but the main content is now working so I thought I'd post it for you all.

The new data includes all the documented mutations from around the world, including the rare ones, all with photo examples. A lot of the data for the information was from the WBO, ABS, BAA and BS standards as well as information from Ghalib Al-Nasser, Ken Yorke, Peter Bergman, Mike Rankin, Clive Hesford, Didier Mervilde, Cyril Rogers, Jeff Attwood, and more. So hopefully it is as accurate and current as possible with the information available at this time from around the world.

Hopefully it will help some people out, and if so than it was worth the research. Enjoy!

glad to help out... I know some seems a bit complex to beginners, I do have some genetic basics articles in my FAQ as well that may help (genetics 101)... but I wanted to be as thorough as possible. However most people, if you're like me, are visual learners and can look at a photo and see enough to tell what type you have regardless if you understand the genetics part or not. I tried to give as detailed descriptions of each one to the best of my ability.

Durring my research I realized just how much misinformation is out there on the net, and my goal was to get all the good information posted in one place. On ones where I wasn't sure the correct info, I contacted some of the leading breeders of those specialties to get the correct data whenever possible or find articles by leading breeders in the field to see what they had found to put the information into mine.

I also am currently working on a genetics inheritance article on how to understand how the genetics portion relates to breeding. (Genetics 102 article that's not published yet).

I just read the whole thing! My background is molecular biology, so I find budgie genetics totally fascinating!

I have a few additions to make still, and will be giving photo credits at the bottom as well. Including the melanistic spangle that I'll be adding to this week. But it's mostly done. I know it's a bit long, LOL but there are alot of different mutations once you start getting them all ... more than I ever imagined before I started my research!!

I have to say though that I'm still just clueless on mutations. I try to figure out what mine are and I'm still just lost.
