Question Wanting a few "Normal" color budgies?

Hi guys, I have a large English Male budgie with native colours (See Picture) and a female budgie who is completely yellow. I'm wanting to get a few more of the English variety budgies or hopefully some with native colours like my male. Would it be worth trying to breed these two and would they likely produce this colouring?

I'm not sure if the female is an English budgie or not, she is slightly bigger than my other ones I'd say, but just wondering if you guys can help me?

I think she may be in breeding condition so I have set-up the breeding cage ready with a breeding box and all the essentials - she does seem interested and continuously goes into the box and stays there for a while before coming out again throughout the day.

Any advice?

Thanks,
Jay

This pairing should produce green single factor spangles. Personally I think these are gorgeous birds. Rather than having the black on the wings as your normal green (native) does the wing are predominately yellow.

Good luck with this pairing. If you haven't already I do highly recommend having a look at the stickies in hither breeding section of this forum. Lots of information to be had and a few tips from people with years of breeding experience.

Hello, if your hen is double factor spangle you will get some of the spangle chicks and I agree with Li, that spangles are extremely cute color. In addition, you might have a chance to get greens as well, or any other variety, because most of the time in line with visual color, birdie might have something hidden, all depends on their pedigrees. Also, I don’t recommend breed English budgie and regular parakeet, because you will ruin the purity of the EB, but it’s just my personal preferences. You have gorgeous cock, try to find him EB hen and you will get stunning chicks - pure EB. Good luck!

All of the chicks will be spangle though because the hen can only pass on a spangle gene and it is dominant. They will be mostly green and yellow but if they are both split for blue then 25% or so will be white and blue.

Thanks everyone! Also, was wondering if you could tell me what colours I'd likely get if I mated the yellow female with the male in this picture I've attached? I've included the picture of the female just in case (She is all yellow)

Thanks!

One of the mutations experts will be able to help you. I don't even attempt to figure it out.
