Default Hi check out our blue/white/yellow/green budgie.

Hi guys i grew up around budgies grand parents kept bird sheds and caged birds. I had one and learned to train it with a cats ball on a chain. We have used that method with buddie too. Today he flew repeatedly to our 4yr old his best friend. She gently taps the ball against the perch saying come on and he does. Its awesome.

I hope to have a crafts day soon and we can build him an activity set up of perches and stuff to peck on. Ill be looking for inspiration on that whilst here. I have some light perches and nail file covers ready. I need a base next.

Ive never seen a budgie like this until this bird but since saw quite alot of mixed colour birds. Rainbow ones too. I only knew common types.

Any info on these kind of budgies would be great. Are they rare?

They are gorgeous, aren't they?

No, they aren't rare, particularly. They are sky blue yellow face II budgies, the yellow face II causes the yellow in the face to bleed into the blue in the feathers, making them a lovely turquoise color.

Default New budgie thats blue with yellow head. Are these rare budgies?

Hi ive been around budgies and their cage mates forever gramps breeding them in garden sheds. But ive never seen a budgie with blue and green colours.

Until i saw buddie my 4yr olds first pet, we found him just afew doors down from hobby breeders they had the two nicest budgies i ever saw.

Buddie and a sky blue with white wings no pattern. Im tempted to see if that bird is still available but know i shouldn't lol. Not yet.

Buddie was only 8wks old when he came idk for sure but im certain he was very young. But still big. Now hes flying to a perch we hold whilst tapping his ball on it. He's only been doing that this week. But will sit on the finger ect.

But hes still easily spooked and gone. Although now is circling and landing back. (Like false alarm folks)

I would like to find out if this bird is considered rare and whether show worthy and how to go about that with my 4yr old being the trainer.

Its mostly me atm building the trust and pushing him to the kid. She's definitely his 2nd favourite person. Only flying to us two nobody else. That makes her so proud.

Heres buddie, ive since seen some very nice colours on budgies so mayb its becoming more comnon mayb bred in somehow. Any info would be great.

I only knew the std colours. Blue white or Green yellow. Mayb solid white or yellow.

Now ive seen rainbow budgies but i dont think buddie is classed as that since he still has his budgie markings.

I've merged your two threads into one It's better to edit your original post than to post two threads on the same subject.

I answered your original thread above

As said above he's a standard yellow face type 2 sky blue. Not rare I'm afraid and quite common mutation wise.

As for shows as he is a pet type and not exhibition then he wouldn't win any bird shows against exhibition budgies.

I don't know of any shows where budgies are entered for tricks and I wouldn't recommend it. It would be too dangerous having them in a show environment outside of the cage to perform tricks.

Buddie is a very pretty color. Although not rare at all, I do prefer blue and yellow birds! Your questions have been accurately addressed by the posters above.

You’re welcome to post an Ongoing Thread of Buddie in our Budgie Pictures section .
