to be classed as a rainbow it has to have a strict mutation mix, i couldnt tell yo what exactly but i think its something like a blue bird qith yellow face (type 2?) and has to e pied or spangle or something someone else will clarify this more hpefully
A rainbow budgie must be blue series, yellow face type two, clear wing, opaline. I have a pair of rainbows Diego and La fiesta. They are beautiful birds. Both also have pied mutations as well. Here are some photos.
RAINBOW (composite Opaline Whitewing Yellowface/Goldenface Blue series)
The standard will be as for the Opaline Whitewing Skyblue, Cobalt, Mauve, Violet or Grey except for the following details:
The expression of yellow coloration will vary dependent upon which of the yellowface mutations is visibly present in each case, ie Yellowface Mutant 1 will be lemon yellow, Yellowface Mutant 2 double factor will be buttercup yellow and Goldenface double factor will be deeper yellow. The otherwise white areas of the mask, frontal, crown and the very faintly discernible undulations at the back of the head will be in the shade of yellow coloration appropriate to the Yellowface mutant form.
Markings: on cheeks, back of head and neck will have a light flush of the appropriate shade of yellow visible on the otherwise white areas at the edge of the markings.
Wings: may have a very light flush of the appropriate shade of yellow visible on the otherwise white areas at the edge of minimal body colour markings.
Primary wing flights: grey/white.
Primary tail feathers: white.
Secondary tail feathers: blueish/grey at the tip, an overlay of the appropriate shade of yellow on the otherwise white areas is permissible.
The notes for the above Yellowface and Goldenface mutations regarding the single factor and double factor should also be applied to the written standard for the Rainbow variety.
The Rainbow is not a proper example of the variety unless it is visibly an Opaline, a Whitewing, a Yellowface or Goldenface
