Default What is Zach's Mutation?

Hi everyone,

I just got a new budgie for my son yesterday. His/her name is Zach (my son wanted a boy ). I was hoping for some help sexing him/her, and also determining what colour mutation s/he is.

I'm guessing he's a boy (the ceres is dark purple with lighter blue around the nostrils, and he sings quite nicely with no angry budgie sounds), and as for colour I'm guessing grey opaline spangle. But you guys know lots more than me, so please let me know what you think!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Karen

Looks like a boy to me, but I am no expert. He is gorgeous either way!

I would hate to guess without a few real closeups in natural light, no flash. Going by your description of dark purple, I would think boy ...

These were taken in natural light with no flash. The ceres looks (to me) to be darkish purple at the bottom and bluish around the nostrils.

You have to give him/her credit for being so patient with the camera!

Your new budgie is 100% male, no doubt there.

Thanks to everyone who responded! My son will be very pleased that he's a boy!

Can anyone comment on the colour mutation, or should I create a new thread in the genetics and mutations section?

Thanks again,
Karen

Karen,
I'll just move your thread over to Mutations and rename "What is Zach's Mutation?" for you.

I agree with Deb and Aluz and your closeups...
