Hello!
I just wanted to see if I could find out more about the Mutation of my Budgies.
The Yellow and Green one is my boy Echo and The Blue and White is my girl, Boo. Or At least we think she is a girl? If anyone can tell me otherwise, I'd appreciate it! Thanks in Advance!
This community is amazing, by the way. So helpful and full of knowledge for first time owners. Super glad I found this forum!

First one is a YF Sky Greywing, the second is a Cobalt dominant pied. But your Dominant pied needs a beak clean up... it's over growing on the one side.

How do I do that? I put plenty of textured surfaces in their cage and a couple cuttlebones.

I agree! Echo is a Yellowface I skyblue greywing. Boo is a Cobalt Opaline Dominant pied, who also appears to be male. ^^

The only way I know of to trim a birds beak safely is to take them to an avian vet. Sorry I can't be of more help!

I think Echo is sky blue yellowface II greywing. If he's yellowface II rather than yellowface I, the yellow will tint his blue body to green after his first molt.

Boo is opaline dominant pied. He does look cobalt but I think I see violet, too. So I'll say cobalt violet opaline dominant pied.

They're cute!

Thank you! They are super sweet too. Best buds already!
I think I should get more opinions on Boo's Gender. We originally thought she was a Male and named her Klaus. When I heard she was a female, I changed her name to something Gender neutral. (Although, I still have a hard time not calling her Klaus)

I made few changes to their home and added a Mineral Block and some more Chew toys to help with her Overgrown Beak but I just found an Avian Vet today so I can make an appointment for her. Hopefully, There isn't an under-lying issue.
