Default What is Bob's mutation?

I'm maybe getting Bob a girlfriend this weekend, and because of that I want to know what his mutation is. I want to maybe(!!) try breeding, and I've read that certain combinations don't mix well. I think he is maybe sky blue?? but i am very unsure so I'd be very happy to hear other peoples opinions
I had a hard time finding a website to upload photos in a different way, all of them gave me urls that didnt work with the forum/gave me error photos, so I hope uploading them in this way is ok.
sidenote: he was in molt in one of these photos, and his cere looks a bit shabby but he looks fine now!!

Caroline, I'm sorry I can't help with mutation and I'm sure someone will do.
I'm sure you plan to do a lot of research before breeding and know about quarantine.

Some very important things to take into account before considering breeding/getting a friend are how old Bob is and how long has he been alone?

It's also worth remembering that getting a new friend can be wonderful but they don't always work out as we hope. Being prepared to have them in two cages forever is something that could happen if they don't get along.

On a personal note, while the idea of breeding is fun, from having a lot of budgies, it's a lot easier to get budgies boys that get along than a pair interested in one another.

Bob has actually not been alone for longer than 2 weeks, as his girlfriend died then. He's a bit over a year old, but he's seemed very lonely since she very suddenly passed away. He's not very tame either, so my company won't do much for him, therefore I thought the sooner I get another budgie the better he will have it. I will be doing a quarantine and if it doesn't work out between them I'm prepared to keep them in seperate cages.
I will obviously do my research before breeding, and I'm also very unsure if that's ever going to be something I'll do, and I might end up with another boy.

Nonetheless I've always wondered what kind of mutation he has

I'm definitely not an expert, but he appears to be at the least a sky blue opaline budgie, and I think spangle? Someone else with more expertise will be along soon though

Katherine is correct, he is a sky blue opaline spangle budgie

I agree with Therm. Breeding should not be taken lightly and requires an immense amount of research

I'm glad to hear that should you decide to undertake breeding in the future, you'll be doing plenty of reading and research

Bob is adorable
