Default Test Me on Mutations!

Hi everyone

Lately, I've become more and more interested in learning about budgie mutations and have tried determining mutations among many different budgies.

I'm trying to sharpen up my skills a little bit more so I was thinking, "What better way to sharpen them than to test myself?"

If you could, please post pictures of your budgies with their names on this thread and I'll try to get their mutation! Maybe I can have Nev or ATV to guide me and see if I'm right or wrong

Send in those pictures!

My budgies want to be included. I already know what they are, but whatever.

I wish I had some good pics of Ringo Starr...she was like a greywing or something interesting. But alas, I don't.

Good luck.

But before you stone me, (even though I'm not an adulterer) All the budgies in this thread are adorable too of course.

Oh gosh, I'm nervous!! I wish I studied a little harder!

Okies.. here I go.

SpickyDavis - Hmm, judging from that picture I can't really be sure but I think it may be either of the two:
- Male Dark Green
- Male Yellow Face Type II

Budgieloveee -
Zuc - Male Opaline Dark Green
Little Joe - Male Yellow Face Type I Sky Blue
Charlie - Male Yellow Face Type I Opaline Sky Blue

Mindy-
Kitty - Female Yellow Face Type II Greywing Sky Blue (I'm a little confused on whether she is Greywing or Dilute)
Toby - Male Dark Green Clearflight
Summer - Female Lutino

keet_tweet4 -
Figaro - Female Colablt Opaline
Sukiyaki Maki Maki - Male Recessive Pied Sky Blue (Not sure whether he is DFDP or RC)
Aloha Coconut - Female Yellow Face Type II Opaline Cobalt ( )

Toot -
Frankie Do Bird - Female Yellow Face Type I Opaline Sky Blue

Nev90 -
1. Male Muave Spangle
2. Female Muave Cinnamon
3. Female Recessive Pied (Not sure with the blue band on the bottom)
4. Male Double Factor Dominant Pied Opaline Cobalt
5. Female Lacewing

I'm not even sure with half of the mutations!! I wasn't as ready as I thought! I'm sure I'm way off with a few haha

Here's my answers for your comparison:
SpickyDavies
Type 2 yellow face sky blue (not sure)


Budgieloveee (Alexandra)
Zuc - Opaline grey green (The cheek patches show that it’s grey green)
Little joe – Type 1 yellow face sky blue
Charlie – Type 1 yellow face opaline sky blue (possibly single factor violet as well)

Mindy
Toby – Clearlight pied dark green
Kitty – Because of the colour of it’s tail I think it’s another clearflight even though it doesn’t have clear flight feathers. Yellow face cinnamon or clearflight sky blue
Summer – Lutino (assuming the red eyes are not just caused by the flash)

keet_tweet4 (Haley)
FIGARO – Opaline cobalt
SUKIYAKI MAKI MAKI – Recessive pied sky blue
ALOHA-COCONUT – Type 2 yellow face opaline cobalt

TOOT (TooT)
Frankie Do Bird – Opaline sky blue

Nev90
Photo 1 – Clearwing mauve
Photo 2 – Cinnamon mauve
Photo 3 – Type 2 yellow face recessive pied cobalt
Photo 4 – Dominant pied spangle cobalt (I added this one to make it hard for you)
Photo 5 – Green series lacewing
