Default how to breed a rainbow from this guy

I just got this amazing male budgie, he is by far my favorite. Can anyone tell me what type of mutation he is and what would be the best hen to breed with him to make RAINBOW budgies? I hope I've added the photos right?

He is very lovely! He looks like a skyblue golden face spangle. A rainbow is a blue yellow face or golden face opaline clearwing. To get an actual rainbow you would need to add opaline and clearwing to the mix, which would take at least two generations. You would need an opaline clearwing hen.

Some people are happy with a bird that looks similar to a rainbow, which is a blue yf or gf opaline spangle. To get one of those you only need to add opaline, which would likely take two generations anyway. You would need a blue opaline hen as a first pair and the offspring would look very like rainbows without actually being one.

Your new male is a very handsome fellow.

I notice in the pictures you have wooden dowel perches rather than natural wood perches of varying diameters.

Please take the time to read all of the Budgie Articles as well as the Stickies at the top of each section of the forum to ensure you provide the best possible care for your birds.

How long have you owned budgies?
Do you have prior experience in breeding them?

Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility. This requires extensive research and an openness to continual learning.

If you are considering breeding in the future, please make sure you read the following Breeding Threads:
