I am not content with simply calling these chicks "green" or "yellow." I like information, and I like to know the "why's." Punnit (is that the right spelling) squares intrigue me as well, but I haven't come close to figuring them out. I'm a mutation newbie.

I tried my best to get decent front and back pics of these chicks. Let me know what you think, and if I need to get better angles! Thanks!

These are the first two...

And here are the second two...

Thanks FaeryBee for merging those posts! I wasn't sure how to get all the pics in one post.

i guess.

1. Dominant pied single factor, opaline, Dark green (Or conalt blue-golden face) ..male?
2.Dominat pied single factor, Dark green,diluated and spangle SF ?....male?
3. common light green Violet---female?
4.Olive green, diluated, opaline, spangle Sf? ---female?


I am not very familiar with mutation, but it is good to try and be corrected by the experts


***Some time is hard to know if they are green or blue with golden face.

your budgies are very nice.

They are beautiful!
Prisco: All the babies are green series I agree, though, it can be hard to tell!

I agree with the gender guesses, though, the first two are male and the last two are female

1. Opaline dark green sf dominant pied
2. Light green clearwing spangle opaline sf dominant pied
3. Normal dark green
4. Dark green spangle opaline sf dominant pied

Oh, by the way, "Sf" means "Single Factor"
Those are my guesses

Firstly, take a look for budgie genetics here info, including a description of punnet squares.
Budgie Genetics For Owners And Breeders

Secondly your lovely babies:
Dark Green Opaline Dominant Pied
Light Green Opaline Dominant Pied ??
Light Green Normal
Dark Green Opaline Dominant Pied ??

The ?? are because something is diluting the body colour and markings of these birds and I am not sure what.
