Harlequin is on a distinguished road
Default What are they?

Hi all! Its been a while since I've posted. I've finally purchased a pair of budgies to fill my empty cage. The older one is almost pure white, with two small aqua coloured spots on his stomach and a small amount of darkish colouring on his right wing. The younger one is quite unusual for around here. He/she appears to be three colours - yellow, blue and white. On his face, where the spots would be, one side has a blue marking and the other side of his face has a white marking where the blue should be.
If anyone could hazard a guess as to their mutation and sex it would be greatly appreciated. The coloured bird is still quite young and has baby bars on his forehead. Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

I'm helpless when it comes to mutations. But they are gorgeous. Could you get a closer up picture of their ceres?

I am not going to even hazzard a guess. All I know is the younger one is probably a yellowface which makes the blue look green blue. SO I am no help at all. I just had to tell you that they are two of the most beautiful budgies I have ever seen

P.S. They appear to be girls but we would need a closer look.

Thank you. We were only planning on one budgie to replace Nonny who is living with KogoShuko, but we couldn't resist either one.
The photo is the best I've been able to get of them, and not because they are skittish. They are extremely tame and friendly with us. I just don't know how to use my camera properly.
When my daughter comes home for the weekend I will ask her to try her luck with photos. She's much better than me!

The blue one is a YF2 Sky Blue Dominant Pied

The other has me stumped by your description and the picture , I'm gonna guess recessive pied, but could you get a picture of the markings?

The white one is almost pure white. I don't think the markings will even show on a photo they're so small. The two aqua spots are the size of a pea, on the bottom part of the bird's front and the dark markings are on the tip of the right shoulder of the wing. Its kind of grey in colour, just enough to say that the bird isn't white. The younger one looks like he's wearing a vest - with the blue on the upper half of his body and white on the bottom half. We thought at first the white one was an albino, but then saw his eyes were black, not red. Best I can describe.

One is a type 2 yellow face opaline dominant pied sky blue female. I can't tell what the white bird is for sure and would like to see a picture showing the colored areas and the cere. Are it's eyes red or black?

Default the white one

Here are two more photos of the white one. Best I can do. Thank you to everyone for their advice so far! Next will be names. Bébé is already decided for the white one. Not sure on the little one yet.
