Colour mutations
I was browsing the net for general questions and answers about a budgies first moult and then found out that budgies as they age can change colour. My 5 month old male budgie is a yellow face type with pale yellow wings and tail and a sky blue body..

By this description could anybody tell me if my gorgeous budgie Ringo will lose his beautiful blue?

Also hi guys this is my first post xx

Yes. If he is a yellow face type 2, then each time he moults the yellow will mix with the blue feathers and he will eventually turn green.

Also, welcome to the forums :)

i imagine it will change, though the yellow spilling down makes a nice effect, so he will still be lovely!
