Default mutations

Hi All, I haven't had budgies for yrs and recently I brought 2 home. I took them together because they were both beautiful but more so because they seems to be so close with one another. I watched them awhile ( at least an hr.) before i decided to do it. i took them both because i didnt think they would want to be split up. lol. I'm glad i did. they adjusted well and get along so well. always side by side... preening each other etc. one even feeds the other. they seem very happy and content and so glad i took them both. Here's my issue.. so many confusing conflicted things I've read on line...im trying to figure out what kind of budgies they are. due to color mutations, its seems very complicated to me. can anyone give me an idea of what type of budgies they are? doesnt matter to me because i love them both. just curious. Thanks. Kevin - newest member here. love the site, enjoy seeing all the pics and reading all the helpful info. attached are pics of Ollie and Molly.

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your new budgies!

The budgie on the first photos (a young male), I think is a yellow face type II sky blue double factor dominant pied opaline budgie. Depending on whether he will get the irises on his or not, he may also be split for recessive pied (if eyes stay completely black).

Your other bird, a female is a sky blue opaline budgie.

You're very welcome!

Your male is younger than your female. I'd say he is below 6 months old, while your female is at least 6 - 7 months old.
Keep on enjoying your budgie friends!

Hi Kevin and to the forums!

Ollie and Mollie are absolutely gorgeous I agree with Aluz on Ollie's mutation, but Molly is also yellow face type II and single factor violet, so her full mutation is sky blue yellow face type II single factor violet, opaline

Both are gorgeous little birds and it's great you brought both into your home

There's lots of wonderful reading material on the forums, beginning with the links Deborah provided. If you have any questions after reading through them, feel free to ask!

Hope to see your gorgeous pair around the forums and you as well

Oops, don't know how I missed the yellow face part. This is what I get for multitasking more than I can handle!
