Dark toenails?
2 Attachment(s)
Mr. Blue has dark toenails, whereas all my other budgies have clear, pinkish toenails. Is the dark color linked to feather color mutation?

I have no idea :XD: but my Kiki has clear nails and my kara has dark nails... she is the same mutation as your Mr.Blue.. maybe it does have something to do with mutation :S now i'm curious tooo :P...

Yes the darker mutations have dark nails

My Grey has Grey feet dark nails My normal sky blue has dark nails

but my Sky blue Cinnamon has light nails, his sky blue is very light though

also if they have all light nails and like one dark nail that is supposed to be another sign they are split to pied But how accurate that is in budgies I'm not sure I know its pretty accurate in Tiels

Yes. Dark toenails just have to do with the mutations. :)

My Zuke has dark nails, but Little Joe's are clear. :)
