Default What mutation again?

She also has small amounts of violet on her.

What do you think of her as a potential bird to breed? Thinking of starting breeding English Budgies? She seems to have flecking?

She is a YF2 opaline sky blue, as to whether or not she has any violet, im finding that its more and more pointless to say given the huge variety in colour tone that comes across on camera. Even my own violets dont look violet on camera but the other mutations are clear.

As far as the head flecking goes, its reasonably common with opalines - they are in fact blamed for the creation and proliferation of flecking throughout other mutations as it is reasonably common now. There are arguements for and against flecking in regards to breeding - it is UNdesirable on the show bench, but many argue flecked birds have darker markings and clean capped babies bred from a clean cap and a flecked parent have good solid markings too (specifically throat spots).

It depends on whether you are wanting to breed show budgies ('english' budgies) or just breed larger birds.

Pretty girl! I guessed the same mutation looking at the pictures, and I was right . Going through all these pretty pictures seems to be paying off . What have you named her?
