Hi there and to the forums!

Your little girl is beautiful. She is definitely grey, yellowface II, opaline, but I think it's possible she's also clearwing. Do you have other photos of her?

Meanwhile, you've come to the best place to learn even more about the best practices for budgie care. Be sure to read through all the forum's articles and stickies to ensure you're up to date on everything! If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

Hope to see you and your girl around here!

Cheers

Hi, welcome!

Your new girl is absolutely gorgeous! It’s fun to see the amazing variety of colors and combinations budgies come in.

We ask that all new members read through the Stickies posts in each section, and the Articles. There’s a lot of useful information on all aspects of budgies and how to care for them successfully. You’ll also find answers to many questions as well. If you can’t find the answer, just ask.

Thank you so much! To everyone! And I'll definitely be looking at the articles!

She is a beauty. I've not seen one like her but in trying to look up on internet ive seen a opaline clearbody which is the closest to her. But she is mostly a lovely pale, pastel, yellow. Sort of creamy. A little brighter around the face then her tail end and a bit of back look like she was dipped in water colour water. Not even enough for actual water colours, it would be the water you clean brushes in! Im not sure the pictures do her justice. But that's often the case with budgies....they are pretty in pictures but amazing in person with the colours you see on them!

But I'll try to add some and see if you all can see her. 😊Attachment 240716

Hi there, I think she is skyblue rather than grey. It may just be the photo altering her colour, but her cheek patches are violet so I think grey is unlikely. The colour on her rump will be most accurate, is it light blue or grey?

The flights look to be grey/white, is that right? If so I think she is a skyblue yellow face 2 opaline clearbody, possibly with clearflight also. Very pretty!

Her flights appear grey. Her rump, belly and a bit of back too (between her wings) is sort of bluish, purplish, greenish? Her tail has sort of a pale yellow base colour, the mid strip is a deep colour either black or deep blue, and one side and tip appears dotted with that colour. But definitely her base colout all over mostly is a pale yellow...most others are that pale watered down water colours of purple, blue, green and a lovely black on wings, throat and some tail. I just havent come across one like her but when i saw her, drove 2 hrs to get her!

She's definitely an opaline as she has that thicker grey stripe in her flight wings...
