Default Rainbow Breeding

Hi all,

I have a rainbow budgie. Her name is Alex and she is almost 1 year old now.

She in in moulting period now. When she finished moulting period, I will find her a male budgie.

But, I am not good with budgie genetics, what kind of budgie should I buy to get colorful babies. I mean is it possible to get babies like Alex's kind and also other kind of rainbow budgies(Alex's kind is rainbow violet I guess).

I added the photos of Alex, what is your male budgie suggestion for my Alex?

Regards.

Wow, Alex sure is a gorgeous bird!

Have you bred budgies before? Talk Budgies doesn’t condone breeding unless enough research has been done on all aspects of breeding including health, diet, and temperament of the individual birds. “Enough experience” is generally considered at the soonest, around a year of keeping budgies while diligently researching and learning the best practices of all aspects of breeding, and observing behaviors, and truly getting to know the species.

Learning about the color mutations is fun, I agree, but knowledge of the basics, and then more important points of breeding must come first.

Even after breeding for many years, there is still more that can be learned. If you’re ready, let us know of your experience please. If you still have the basics to learn, we have some knowledgeable breeders here to help. Also recommended are the Stickies posts at the top of the forum sections (especially breeding, diet, and healthcare sections) which contain some essential information, as well as answers to some common questions and situations.

Hi RavensGryf,

Thank you for answer. Not much but I have experience in breeding

I had babies 2 times from 2 different pairs. For the first pair, 2 of 6 eggs were full and 2 of 7 were full for other pair.

I prepared fresh food(with caroot, egg, etc) every day till the babies can feed by themseleves.

None of them had bowlegs I added some photos of my babies.
Last one(Yellow-White one really loves to be in the palm)

Also, do you have an idea about rainbow genetics? I do not have experience about colors of budgies.

Regards.

To get rainbow babies you need a blue male with clearwing and opaline. Good luck on your budgie hunt!

I see that you are still using both wooden dowel perches as well as the plastic dowel perches that come with the Hagan Vision cage.

Neither of these types of perches are recommended as they can cause pressure sores.

For your budgies health and well-being, please ensure you replace all those type perches with natural wood perches of varying diameters (not wooden dowels).
This was mentioned in one of your previous threads as well.

Your birds are beautiful and I'm sure you want to take the best possible care of them.

Best wishes

You will get a bit of a mix with some rainbows in there. Rainbow is the name for a specific combination of varieties: blue, yellow face, opaline and clearwing. Some people allow full bodied greywing instead of clearwing, which is what your hen is, though it is not the official colour.

If you do find an opaline clearwing or a rainbow male then along with rainbows you will also get some chicks without the yellow face and the chance of other varieties that are present but not visible in the adults.
