Question Mutations NOT to breed?

Hello,
I am researching mutations for breeding, and I am just wondering if there are budgie mutations that should NOT be bred together. For example in cockatiels there are colors that look less than pretty when combined, and you are discouraged from breeding like to like, does this hold true for budgies as well, and if so what color combos should be avoided? Thank you for your input.

to TalkBudgies!

I don't know of any that should be avoided, per se. It's a matter of aesthetics.

With that said, keep in mind that basic budgie colors are green (dominant color) and blue (recessive color):
Shade of green depends upon "dark factors": Light green (no dark factors), dark green (one dark factor) and olive green (two dark factors).
Same for blue: Sky blue (zero), cobalt (one) and mauve (two).
The chick's shade will depend upon its parents' shades; e.g., no x no = no, no x one = no or one, no x two = one, one x one = no or one or two, two x one = one or two, and two x two = two.
In addition, the blue series budgies can be yellowface I (yellow confined to mask and tail coverts), yellowface II (yellow bleeds onto body, turning blue to blue-green) or goldenface (same as yellowface II but darker yellow).

Color-adding factors are grey and violet. So imagine how grey or violet would look on your green or blue series budgie.

Last, keep in mind that some mutations (greywing, cinnamon, dilute) dilute the body color.

Lindsey's website offer several examples of each color: Budgie Mutation And Color Guide - ************* Cute Little Birdies Aviary.

When you breed TCB's you have to stay away from cinnamon, dilute and pieds, although I got a TCB RP and it was a lovely bird, but for show purposes it is better to leave out those mutations

Thanks everyone! That was basically what I had found so far, but I have been really frustrated with the internet lately, as all my searching does not always turn up the answers I need
