So, after many, many months of soul searching and research I've decided I want to try to breed a few English/Exhibition budgies. Initially for the pet trade. They are about as rare as hens teeth in my area.
I now have four potential pair.
I have varying degrees of info on these birds. Allie has helped me quite a bit, but I would love any more assistance on the parents, but most particularly on options on offspring. I'll do one pair per post. They are all named after Tolkien Characters.
This first pair was already posted in New Budgies. They are bonded and have had two clutches together. Resulting in a couple similar to dad, a couple like mom and a light grey (from what I can tell - previous owners didn't know any correct terminology).
Finwe - Cock - Sky Blue Spangle. May have violet as the back of his head and his cheek patches are purple though it doesn't show in the picture. Opaline?
Miriel - Hen - Maybe Grey Green Opaline Texas Clearbody? SF Grey, split for blue due to offspring.
