What mutation is Caspir?
 
I was hoping I could get some opinions on Caspir's mutation.

I agree too. What you call teal I called turquoise, as I had two budgies with that same beautiful shade of blue. Mine were a normal skyblue and a dominant pied skyblue. They were brothers and both parents were dark green split to blue. These boys had a brother who was a dominant pied dark green. He paired up with a dominant pied cobalt and produced a recessive pied skyblue with the same turquoise hue. According to older books I had back then, that shade is the influence of the green parent(s) who are split to blue. Caspir is absolutely lovely. Is he a baby you raised? What do his parents look like?

Thanks for all the good info, 2many. I bought Caspir from a pet store. I know what you mean about the turquoise. To me, that's not skyblue. But I'm thinking of the actual blue sky. That was throwing me off. :D

Are there pictures posted of the above mentioned family? I'd like to check them out. :)

You know, I did find an older picture of them that I have been meaning to scan and post somewhere. Don't know how clear it would turn out but I will try and get that up this week. Bug me if I forget :). They were part of my first flock, born in 1989 and 1990.

Edit: dang memory. Ricki (the recessive pied I mentioned) was a cobalt, not a skyblue. Just now thinking that, because dad was dark green/blue and mom was cobalt. One of those duh! moments :o. But Skeeter and Scooter were the turquoise looking sky blues. I will look for that picture.

I didn't realize you had been breeding that long. You have a lot of experience then. Don't worry, I'll be bugging you. :D
