Default Her mutation is...

This is my new bird, I got her today. I'm not sure of her mutation, any ideas?

Sky blue opaline greywing. She's pretty!



P.S. Those perches are too rough for budgies' feet.

She's beautiful, congratulations! She is indeed sky blue opaline greywing, however, she is also SF violet

Since you got her yesterday, she should not be with your current bird just yet. She needs time to settle in by herself, and the quarantine period is very important to ensure that no illnesses from the pet store get passed to the new bird. Check out this link for more information!

Just want to emphasize the importance of quarantine, as someone who used to not practice it. My ex always insisted it was "silly" and "unnecessary" because he had owned a pet store before and thought he knew everything...

We had an outbreak of some unknown illness hit the budgies - and spread to almost all of them. We lost about 6 birds, and more passed away after I left my ex. All because of a preventable thing. They all seemed perfectly healthy... They can seem perfectly healthy and even just be carrying something - you never know until you get a clearance from your certified avian vet. Please, practice quarantine it is so important.

Your new little girl is very pretty. Have you named her yet?

Please be sure to read all the links I provided to you in Private Message, Visitor Message and your Introductory thread.

With regard to your perches, please look at this thread for the types that are best for your budgies:

Best wishes!

I haven't name her yet. Yes Quarantine, I've never done it, I've had 7 birds. All my birds are from the same store, and none of the birds I've ever got there had an illness. Not to mention I only have 2 cages budgies in one, a lovebird in the other. Just don't have the money to buy a new cage.

Melissa,

Every member should have a spare cage for use as a quarantine and/or hospital cage. This is part of being a good owner.

Just because you've never had problems in the past when you have not followed the best practices of quarantine doesn't mean you won't in the future.

Keep in mind -- the purpose of this forum is to promote best practices.

If you don't follow the best practices you are definitely putting your birds at risk.

Please read the following two links:

TalkBudgies.com Rules and Guidelines

https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...ng-forums.html

With regard to finances, I'd strongly suggest you start an emergency fund for your birds in case of illness or injury and ensure you have an Avian Vet lined up as well.

https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...e-expense.html

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

Having your budgies examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your birds needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your birds to refer to should it need future treatment.

Ok, so I'll see what I can do, I might be able to move my lovebird in the other cage since she's only in that cage for Quarantine (I know I said I never quarantined my birds, but my lovebird was the first) she's been in quarantine for a month so I'll just put her with the budgies (They get along well, I've already worked on that) so I'll move my new budgie into quarantine.

Also, no avian vets in my area, I called all vets in my state this morning because of an unfortunate accident, and none of them would take my bird in. I'm so disappointed that my bird had died from something a vet could have helped with!

No -- PLEASE do not put the lovebird in with the budgies!

Even if you think they get along, it only takes one hard nip from a lovebird to do serious damage to a budgie.

They should never be caged together - ever!


What bird died, Melissa? Was it Chrissy?
Did you try contacting an Exotic Vet?

Please send me a Private Message so we can discuss this matter further.
