it depends.... there are a few varieties that cause brown or grey markings. and some will cause very pale body colour too so the best idea would be to get us a photo.

Yeah, like my Tim is a Lacewing even though he looks more like an albino. There are also various types of grey bars, like greywing is different from a clearbody, etc.

Awright. Here we go. I know I did a hatchet job on the clip. I got about two in and was felt bad so just did a few on the other wing and quit. Maybe is eating and drinking but still stressed. I did not use a flash for this reason and lightened them in post. I know the pics are LOUSY, so sorry. He/She is actually a quite bit lighter than this. The blue is a true palest baby blue.

So, whaddya think? What type? A boy?





I gotta get those nails next. The person (who is nice but....) tried to give me FOUR babies, a long haired chicken and a bunny too..... LOL

Awww!! He/she is SO pretty! Sorry I can't really tell the gender, looks like there might be a bit of white on his/her cere. What did you take the picture with? If you have good lighting and a camera, you can go on macro mode and take close up pictures without flash. Then they won't look as grainy.

Here's a website with a great mutations guide in case you've never seen it:

I agree with everyone else who said greywing, clearwing, or dilute. I think he's more likely a greywing or a dilute though, since you said he's the palest blue. Beautifiul budgie

I do have macro but he's so sketched i wanted to zoom. In a few weeks I'll be able to get better. Gosh. I really hope he's not a girl.
