Default Mutation Help!

I've been scouring the mutations sticky to try to figure out the mutations of our two new babies. We have two other budgies that seem more straightforward that these two. And, yes, this is their quarantine cage which is kept in an entirely separate room. I'd love some help! If you need different pictures, let me know! Thank you in advance!

Hi there and to the forums!

Your little ones are very sweet! I'm glad you are keeping them in quarantine currently

The green one looks like maybe an olive or dark green normal sf dominant pied budgie, although it's hard to tell as I can't see his front. Do you have more photos?

The blue one is a cobalt opaline yellowface budgie, not sure if I or II. Again, more photos showing more of them from the front rather than up above would be great!

Meanwhile, you've come to a great place to learn even more about budgies! We're so glad you've decided to continue your budgie research and journey with us here We look forward to seeing you around the forums!

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

Best wishes!

I'll add to Starlings suggestions that the cobalt is also a single factor dominant pied, and the yellow looks very pale so I think it's a yf1.

Sorry I can't help with mutations, but your green budgie looks a bit like a pied version of my little girl Petal! She's in my profile pic. Gorgeous birds, have you come up with names?

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Your budgies are adorable and I'm glad to hear you have them properly quarantined away from your other budgies at this time.
I would recommend you replace the wooden dowel perch(es) in the cage with natural wood perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

https://www.talkbudgies.com/articles-...ure-sores.html

The information in this link will provide you with better options:

Essentials for a Great Cage

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

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:

Thank you all so much! They are very reluctant to show me their fronts long enough for a quality picture right now. I'm going to leave them alone so they can continue to acclimate. I was sanitizing some natural perches from our other cage, so that's why the dowel was left in there. They have their natural perches now After they acclimate a bit more, I'll try to post some frontal pictures. Thanks again!

Default Mutation Help - part 2

My other thread was closed, so I had to start a new one.

Kiwi (green - boy?) and Noodle (blue - female?) have been home for a while now and have peacefully integrated into our flock (now 4 - they joined two females) after quarantine and the helpful stickies here! In the last thread, I needed some better straight on shots and have finally been able to get them.

These are all natural light photos with no flash.

Here are all the pictures from the last thread and the last two pictures are my new pictures:






and a bigger picture of all 4 just for fun


Here is what was said in the other thread:

Kiwi looks very dark so probably an olive dominant pied, and noodle is a cobalt yf1 opaline and also either clearflight pied or dominant pied.

Yep, I agree completely with what Toni said! Also, Noodle is definitely female and Kiwi is definitely male

Also, I would be sure to keep a close eye on them as sometimes uneven genders in flocks can lead to some conflict, but I'm glad they're all doing well together so far!
