Default 4 Different colours in 1 nest box

Hi i had budgies all my life i have started an aviary and began to breed them. im unsure how to sex young budgies yet but im still learning,

i got 2 budgies breeding the hen is white faced blue body which is 2 years old and the cock is dark green which is 1 year old, they was successful they laid 5 eggs but only 4 hatched few weeks later they began to have they feathers when i looked i was surprised 1 is pure white, 1 is yellow with some white, 1 is blue and the other 1 is violet.

i assumed the colours will be the same as the parents, as the other pair of budgies i bread are the same as their babys.

im not complaining im just wondering is it normal


(i don't breed budgies for money i breed them for me to keep the aviary)
(sorry if post in the wrong place not sure how forums work)

Isn't genetics fun!?

It's not uncommon to have babies that are all different, and don't look like mom or dad. There are so many mutations that are sex linked, or in split form, or even in a double factor form that can make each baby look completely different.

If you can post pictures of mom and dad, and all the babies, we can help determine the mutations and the genders too.

I currently have a clutch of Engish Budgies, and each one of them is different too!

Thanks!
So the dad bird is a green Opaline.

Let us know when you can get pics of the chicks and mom, and we'll be happy to help out with genetics and mutations.

Thanks for the video, this is very helpful !

I no longer think that dad is a green series bird. He's a SF Yellow Face II which is making his blue feathers turn that beautiful green colour.

The pure white chick is an Albino and this means that dad is split for that mutation. This also means that this chick is female, since INO is a sex linked gene.

The pure yellow one is also INO, but has inherited the Yellowface gene from dad. This chick is also female.

The light blue chick is a Sky Blue Opaline

The darker chick is Cobalt Violet Opaline.

Since both mom and dad are visual opalines, the two blue chicks can be male or female (Opaline is another sex linked gene).
