When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi there and to the forums!

It's great to have you here, your budgies are gorgeous!

Willow is a dark green spangle budgie, Starfly is a sky blue single factor violet cinnamon opaline budgie, Nanna is an albino yellowface II (creamino) budgie, and Whisper is a cobalt greywing budgie, as far as I can tell

Be sure to read through all of the forum's many articles and stickies that we have here, as they provide the best information for budgie care! If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

We look forward to hearing how things go with your budgies!

Best wishes!

Awesome thank you!! Iíve been researching colors and I donít quite have it all down in deciphering the differences between alike markings and colors, and how one trait affects another.

I thought so too! I wrote down what I thought all my birds were and I had Opaline for whisper. I didnít guess she was a grey wing though so I had dilute and cobalt blue for color. I have a cobalt blue and a few sky blues and the color looks like a lighter version of cobalt...but I also didnít guess violet so maybe thatís why I thought cobalt. I have 15 Parrakeets and 8 cockatiels and Iím getting a book together with names, sexes, ages, pictures, genes (visual at least), ect. I love all my babies
