Technical Budgie Breeds? 'mutation' names?
I have two parakeets, Berry and Pippen. Pippen is the one with the sky blue belly all over and Berry is the pretty white and blue one. Pippen is a girl and Berry is a Boy. I would say that Berry is about 1 1/3-1/2 years old and Pippen is about 1 1/4-1/3 years old. I know for a fact Pippen is younger when I got them :D

They have shared a cage together all their lives and I bought Pippen from the breeder. My friend thought it was pretty cool and wanted one too so he got Berry. But my friend has two younger foster care siblings who are kindof loud and were frightening him so he gave Berry to me and they are in the same cage once again! :o

Below I have some photos and my question is, what kindof parakeets are they? (each)

I did have some sort of a worry that Berry had this melanin condition called 'ino' because his beak has been growing a sharp orange and his feet are kindof pinky but it might just be me overreacting :o

Anyway, Thanks so much and If you are really good at interpreting blurry photos (sorry my camera is bad forgive me!) then could you by chance tell me their ages too? I can send more photos if needed :D

Thank you thank you thank you!!! ;)

First budgie Sky Blue Opaline

Second Budgie Sky Blue Dominant Pied

Cannot confirm gender

In these pictures the light is behind the budgies therefore budgies are not clear

Your camera can give you good result in proper direction of light :)

I agree with Chirper, looking forward to seeing the pictures!

chirper 09-26-2015 09:36 PM

You are most welcome :)

I think the first one may also be Cinnamon, the markings don't look black in those pics to me. It may just be the pics though.

Ino is just another variety like Opaline, Cinnamon, Spangle etc. It is not a condition and certainly nothing to be worried about, Ino's (Albino or Lutino) are very beautiful birds!

I totally agree with Toni :)

Here are some more photos of Pippen and Berry! I made sure that they were pretty clear so that they were easy to see and compare :)
In response to Toni, yes, Berry does have a few black markings on his back and feathers, mostly

Thanks again and enjoy! :D

EDIT: Hmmm... they seem to have uploaded sideways! Sorry about that :(
