Default What type of budgies do I have and what can I expect the babies to be?

I resently got 2 pairs of budgies in the hope of breeding them! But I'm not totally sure exactly what type they are and so I'm having trouble trying to figure out what to expect of the babies if they do breed. The darker green male is paired with the yellowish hen, they are bonded and have just started to mate. And the 2 whites have just been put together yesterday. The albino is the hen.
Any help would be great:grinning:

The male on the first two pics is an olive green opaline budgie.
From the second photo you posted of the female, which was taken under better lighting, I think she is a light green greywing opaline budgie.
If this pair is not split for blue, then all the chicks will be green series and they will all be dark green in colour (if parents are split to blue, then you can also get cobalt blue chicks).
If the father is split for greywing, you can have visual greywing budgies. If not then you will have dark green normal chicks that can be split for greywing, the males can also be split for opaline. Depending on what genes both parents may be hiding, you can have surprises.


As for your other male, he is sky blue in colour. A photo showing the chest/tummy area would be very helpful in order to confirm which type of pied budgie he is. For now, I'm leaning towards double factor dominant pied. The female is an albino. Like I have said previously, the albino looks very young and her mate also seems to be below 1 year old and it's advisable to discourage this pair from breeding: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

They are gorgeous!

Your pied male is a sky blue recessive pied or combination pied budgie; if he develops irises in his eyes then you know he is a combination pied budgie

I suspect that the yellow hen is a dilute rather than a greywing, as her body colour and markings seem very pale.
