Talking introducing my 2 new budgies!!!

once upon a time, i went to the petshop to buy food for my budgies.
knowing that yeye left me made me think that i dont want to buy another bird...
But on that magical day... i proved it wrong... i saw 2 wonderful budgies that spectacularly caught my eyes for their attention..
and these 2 are kippy and margarita...

Kippy - i named it kippy because i believe he is a keeper.. and i love repeating his name.. i believe he is a boy since he has a hint of lavender and blue with little white that is about to vanish on its cere..

EVERYONE, meet KIPPY!!!





-i think he is a blue opaline? hehe

and finally, Margarita- this wonderful bird has a unique color! its color is like a margarita, the drink.. that is why i called it margarita.. oh boy this bird is smart!!! and stunning!! i also believe he is a boy but quite confused, but since he has blue and a little hint of violet on its cere it made me certain its a boy, BUT since it is still young and his cere is a bit white i still get confused..O_o

soooO EVERYONE, this is MARGARITAaahhh!!







cere check on margarita.

-i think he is a yf2 blue spangle..? hahaha.. i hope im right.. since i wanna learn about diff. mutations..

**both of them already knows their names, because im having so much fun calling their names.. they get all excited and move around when i call them.. plus they already know to step on my finger.. margarita learned that on his first day!!..AMAZING! and margarita flew to my arm while he was flying around and i was calling him.. kippy still gets scared.. but he'll shape up soon.. i love training! yeye inspired me..

thank you for letting me introduce my wonderful new budgies!!
i need a little help on knowing their mutations as i am really interested..
thank you in advance!!

Congrats, Kippy & Margarita are very pretty! Margarita looks like a female to me as I'm seeing white rings around the nares. Did you use flash with these pics?

kippy is a skyblue opaline male and margarita is a YF2 skyblue opaline spangle female

on the back, the V-shaped area doesn't have many markings, and the ones that are there are really small, so thats how you know they're opaline lol

I've just viewed the pictures and none of the responses so here's my guesses on their mutations!

Kippy - Opaline Sky Blue
Margarita - YF2 Spangle Opaline Sky Blue
