I've recently added budgies to the flock (well-they're still in quarantine!) and while I know tons about cockatiel mutations, genetics, gender identification etc., I am not too educated on budgie mutations!
So I have two budgies. *The first is the blue/white; suspected female, possibly a English/American cross, and I believe her mutation is Sky Blue Recessive Pied. Age is not known, but I think maybe around a year. *The second is the green/yellow; suspected male, definitely an American budgie, and "he" is a Normal Green. Age is not known, but probably 5-9 months.
Hoping you guys can help me confirm genders and mutations for these cuties so I can officially have their records complete. also, I really tried to get various angle shots but the budgies are not tame and so they move about a lot while I'm trying to take decent pictures. I can try for some more if needed.
They are both sweet girls I don't know anything about mutations, but experienced members are very helpful about any questions you have about your budgies in this forum. I have gotten great advice all the time from them
My pied hen was identified as a Cobalt Violet Recessive Pied. Is it normal for that mutation combo to have red reflective pupils? After taking more photos of my albino, I decided to use the flash (just once!) on my other two hens.
