Cool Weird Hatchling Genetics

Hi-

Anyone else have a surprise color outcome??

Look at this pic:
https://talkbudgies.com/photoplog/index.php?n=17433
Papa is Tim (Lower Left)

Mama Lemonade (is on my avitar)

Two Yellow Birds. There is a touch of pale green on Tim's Back

We have 3 hatchlings. When the biggest and noisiest began to sprout feathers, he turned out is white and pale blue. No yellow whatsoever. Healthy - eats from mom and dad But if they were human Tim might accuse Lemonade of 'cheating' with Karl, because we have no light blues - and Karl, Classic Blue is closest in color of our Boys to baby Sky (tennative name) -- They never came in contact. Karl is in a different cage focused on Zula....

FYI - Katya passed, and we obtained a Boy - Banana (Yellow), and a Girl - Cobalt (Blue)... 4 babies are with new families, we also kept Swinger, along with Lemonade... A charismatic dominant male. . Cobalt is a fallback option next year for Karl if Zula turns out to be bare, or maybe Clem's (Gray) conquest... Banana. when he is old enough, may to be able to tame Sunny the Wild... Lemonade, now a year old, is a better mom than her mom was.
But her kids ... 2 of 3 have no yellow, and both parents are yellow. Anyone else have such an experience?

It's very common to have a yellow bird who is split to white. In your case you have 2 yellow birds who are split to white, thus giving you some white kids.

Default Lemonade & Tim's Kids

Thanks. You know Lemonade has white cheek patches, but Tim's are the standard blue, so we were surprised that we got a double recessive situation. We have no idea about Tim's parents, but Lemonade is from the nest of Phoebe & Pierre a year ago and she and her siblings are all yellow or green. So either Phoebe or Pierre is also a carrier of the white... That big baby who is white with light blue on his back is noisy and full of himself like his Uncle Swinger... The other two.... One is almost all white with dark flecks on the wing feathers like Lemonade, and the other is Almost all yellow like mama.... Pix soon

Yes, both parents are split for blue. The cheek patches have no relation to whether they are blue or green, so aren't relevant in this situation.

I see Opaline and Dominant Pied, Green and Blue - that all works out as possible from those parents. The Green baby has some interesting wing markings.

The Dad seems to be a Green Opaline Dominant Pied and the Mum maybe a Green Recessive Pied? Possible Opaline also, otherwise you have 3 hen chicks there.

both mom and dad must be split for blue
nothing unusual to get blue baby from two greens if they are split blue.
