Default I would like to know about my budgie?

So I have absolutely no idea about anything to do with colour or the difference between a normal budgie and an English budgie. But Mallory definitely seems to have a different head shape to most picture I see so if you could have a nosey and let me know?




If you need anymore pictures I will try my best!

She is a little beauty! Quite a few of us here keep English budgies, including me. Have a good look through the picture galleries - you will find loads of them!

I think you will need to post a clearer pic with a white background to show her colour!

Mallory is a sky blue opaline budgie. It's possible she is cinnamon too, but I can't tell for sure due to the picture quality.

Mallory is beautiful

I agree with all that's been said and I can't wait to see pictures of her!

She's not a greywing.
Greywings have much lighter markings and a higher percentage of body colour dilution. I happen to currently have a sky blue opaline greywing in my flock.
This is Dinda:

To me, the markings on Mallory also seem to be too dark for full body colour greywing.

I agree with Aluz, she could be cinnamon but otherwise no diluting factor like greywing
