The hen is Opaline and looks to be a Violet Skyblue or Cobalt - yes she will pass Violet on to some of her chicks.

The male is a very pale Grey so may be a Texas Clearbody, but I am not seeing hte markings fading from black to grey on his wings. It could just be that his flights are missing though. I'd like to see more pictures of him as he doesn't look right for an Opaline either....

Nice birdies! Love your English Budgies!
Breed them! You will find out about their split mutations right away
Babies def. will be opalines since both parents are

Thanks for the advice! I am planning on breeding them, as they were already bonded to each other when I got them and now I'm just giving them a few weeks to settle in before I let them raise a clutch

Great to know! Thank you! So if all female chicks are texas clearbodies, would the males be a mix of violet/sky/grey opalines?

Thanks for the pictures. I am not experienced with TCB but can see that it may be one. Does TCB reduce the markings on the head sometimes? I don't see any other sign of Opaline than the reduced head markings, the wings look like a Normal to me...
