Is it okay to ask about mutations?
3 Attachment(s)
Can anyone tell me the mutations of these two boys?

They're around 1-2 years old.

Vimes is mostly green with some yellow on his wings.

Nobby is a very light yellow - almost white with blue highlights here and there. Very dilute blue.

Thank you!

They're beautiful!

The green one looks like a dark green clearflight pied, and the blue and yellow is a cobalt yellow face I dominant pied budgie for sure, but I can't see his wing markings well enough to determine what's causing the dilution. My guess is spangle for sure, probably opaline! Do you have any other pictures of his wings?

By the way, I moved this thread to the "Mutations and Genetics" section where it fit better :thumbsup:

Thank you so much, StarlingWings!! And thanks for moving it to the correct forum.

Here's a couple more shots. It's really hard to capture this colour for some reason!

Any thoughts on these new shots?

His wings are very heavily pied, but based on his head barring, I'd say opaline :)

So I think he's a cobalt yf I dominant pied opaline budgie :D

One day I will figure these mutations least that's what I keep telling myself...
