Default Mutation Help

Hi everyone!

Myself and my parents before me have had budgies as long as I can remember but have never been too interested in mutations/genetics etc - having happy and healthy birds is really all that matters to me.

My hen is definitely an albino. But I don't really understand much about this stuff so I'm having trouble working out what my little guy is. If anyone could tell me that would be great! And if you know what sort of colourings/mutations the chicks could be with an albino mother and this guy as the father, that would be really great.

Thanks!

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Even for those of us who have had budgies our whole lives, there is always more to learn!

I'd recommend you remove the wooden dowel perches in your budgies' cage and replace them 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 offers better options for perches:

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

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
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

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!

I agree with Michelle above, he is a cobalt goldenface opaline spangle budgie

FaeryBee has given some great advice and asked some important questions. Breeding budgies should only be undertaken if you've done considerable (a year or more!) of research and have owned budgies for a long time. Also, be sure to read through the forums' many stickies and articles to stay updated on the best budgie care practices! If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

We look forward to seeing you and your gorgeous birds around the forums

Cheers
