Default Can you help identify Chip?

Hi everyone,

I took some better pictures of my 4th budgie, Chip. You've already helped me identify that he's a male, and I believe he's around 3 months, as he has his baby bars and I've noticed a few pin feathers on his face recently. From what you've told me about my similar budgie (Lemon), Chip is most likely some sort of baby blue dominant pied. Can you help identify his mutations?

Also, he seems to be my youngest budgie and the most curious. He's tried to flirt with the others in the flock, but to no success. The others don't have much interest in him. Two others have bonded with each other, and the third just keeps to herself all the time. I'm thinking of adding a fifth budgie with the hopes that it will be a buddy for Chip. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

Your Chip is a sky blue dominant pied greywing budgie.
When it comes to budgies it's best to keep even numbers in a flock, especially when all caged together. And you already have a very good balance with 2 male/female pairs. With time it is very likely Chip will bond to one of your other budgies.

I agree with Aluz concerning everything she's said
