I saw a few olive clearwings there. But who really knows.
It would be nice though. Im still trying to understand sprites
mutation also. I want to learn more on the yellow budgies
the clearwings & greywings.. theres a bit to understand.
Iw ant to know the in's and outs like looking at ALL aspetcs like
tail, cheek & flights colours. Feet colours, patterns on neck etc.
She's a beauty all the same. I wonder if you can find the breeder
by her band? Maybe she has the parents close by
If the breeder is registered with the Aus BS, I would have thought you could as breeders are traceble here in UK BS by their tag number.
I hope you find out
That would be cool, I think she's close by
I wonder how you find them? Nice to know when
you get a budgie theyre from breeders & not bird mills
or something. She is so big & chunky & HEALTHY looking

take a look at the tail quill of her and your cinnamon, the cinnamon should have a brown quill, cleos should be grey.
she is very lovely, and is an olive but not opaline.
Thankyou, Some people had different ideas, but as you see I
was thinking she was clearwing. You dont see many around.
Her tail quill looks darkish grey I think. I love

When I was young good clearwings with very clear wings were quite common but now days most clearwings have darkish markings
Thanks again Nev Makes sense what you have said.
I thought a full body greywing would also have darker wings
and I have read that these days a clearwing with actual clear wings
is very hard to come by, they usually have light markings, that why
many mistake them for greywings. But as we can see Cleo is not
a greywing due to her not looking diluted, as a greywing would.
