ok i know im a bit of a sucker for them, but hey arnt we all.
so in mid June when i got Acacia (pied yellow face 2 hen) there was three other females also for sale, it was a hard pick for me and i brought Acacia home. in the weeks since then every time i have gone to the pet shop i have gone and had a look at the budgies (as i always do) and well the other three hens were always still there!! i thought god no one is buying them, it must be pretty hard for these hens going from their home to the shop and then no-one even considering them (most people in that area are only interested in the really young babies). so i go in yesterday and yep all three still there!
anyway i caved and decided that i have the room money and time for another (im sure i would have got three if i had the cage space but im waiting for my new flight cage-should arrive early this week). im not 100% sure on mutation, im thinking greywing(maybe) not sure on colour violet? but if its greywing could that just be that her body colour is diluted? anyway here she is in her transport cage. she is in Quarentine.
her cheek patches are a very pale lavendar/violet.
and one with the flash- shows how much the flash washes out her colour.
thank you for any help or info you all can give me!!
now i have to think on names hmmm.
Wow, she is so pretty. I don't blame you at all for taking her home. I see violet for sure, maybe on a cobalt base. I only see skyblue in the flash picture, which can't be trusted of course. More pictures would help as far as how bright her body color is to determine grey or clearwing. Of course Barrie would know, so clearwing is more likely.
She is gorgeous!
