Default What mutation are my baby budgies?

Hi, I have two new baby budgies that are about 8 weeks old. They are siblings and their markings and colour are extremely similar to each other. The only difference is that one has a light yellow face and yellow tint on her wings whilst the other has a white face/wings and has lighter markings. I think they are clearwings but I don't know much about budgie mutations so I'd love it if someone could help me out. Thanks

P.S. Sorry I couldn't get clearer pictures because they're still adjusting to the new environment and I didn't want to take them out of their cage

Your new budgies are absolutely precious.

It looks as though you have a male and female.

It will be very important to remain vigilant and ensure you don't have inbreeding between these siblings.

I'm sure one of our mutations experts will be able to help you.

I just realised I posted this in the budgie breeding forums, oops. We have no intention of ever breeding any of our budgies, my little sister and I are just nerds and love learning new things about our pets

Also I'm curious to know which budgie looks like a male? I thought they were both girls, their cere colours are almost identical.

It may simply be the lighting in the pictures that makes it look to me as if one is male.
Lighting makes a big difference as it can wash out the color in the cere.

If you would please post close up pictures of each individual birds' cere in natural light - not direct sunlight and with no flash, then we will be able to accurately determine the gender.

They are lovely! Both look to be blue greywing normals. The blue looks different on each in some photos so I can't be sure what shade they are. I suspect they are cobalt violets, but they look lighter or darker depending on the photo so.....

They are gorgeous, I agree with Toni. However, from the photos you posted, it seems that you have two males. Are both their ceres purplish-pink with no hint of white? As mentioned above, more photos would really be best

Ok I have more photos. These babies are really hard to photograph because the lighting and my camera lens changes the contrast and colour slightly. So in real life, they have a very pastel pale blue (with a hint of grey/purple colour) plumage. In some photos they look more blue than they actually are.

This is what their markings and wing look like:




Also, these are more true to their body colour in real life:




This shows their cere colours. I think they are both male because there is a blue-ish tint around their nostrils:




And here's just a cute photo:

Yes, you have two beautiful boys They're precious! I would say one is skyblue greywing, the other is yellowface cobalt violet greywing (possible yellowface sky blue df violet greywing).

Seeing the new pictures, I agree that you have two very beautiful males!
