Default What is he?

He is about 4months old. What mutation would he be? and how can you tell that? His parents were :
Mum - Sky blue dark wings!
Dad: Mid blue dark wings!

Also, Are there any other mutations i could get from this from their eggs they are currently sat on?

I'm not sure on the other mix you may get. I have one nest which has 5 bubs and each one is different in mutations.

I think you have a lovely skyblue greywing there little boy there, but still getting my head around ALL the different varieties

would this be most likely the main "exciting" mutation i would get from these parents (other than the blue and grey wings of the parents?) or would you expect to get others? I ahve eggs due to hatch and am geting a bit excitied now - thats if they hatch at all!

He is a greywing sky blue. If both parents are normal (dark wings) they must both be split for greywing so about 25% of their chicks would be greywing

Thanks, He is very cute! unfortunately his mum/dad stuck their foot through one of their fertile eggs they are sat on, moved the other to cocktiels clutch to incubate as was very cold this morning and was worried mum not sat on them. Hopefully they should raise it ok! Typically the mum has gone back to sit on her eggs now though!

Is it just my computer or does he look bright for a greywing? Is he a full body greywing?
