What are the most popular/desired budgie types/colors?
I always thought it would be lutino but then I read tonight they are the most common.:S I thought you genetic genius types would know and I'm curious...
What's your opinion and why? Are some colors more difficult to produce?

I wonder if it differs in different countries?

I really want an albino one day. I think they are GORGEOUS. I've never seen one in person.

My guess would be rainbows, but I am no expert.:p
I just googled, it is not even a recognized variety.:o We need an expert answer here...:p

Its all down to personal taste, I suppose the newer mutations will be more desired by people, such as your Anthracites, Black Face etc, I wouldn't mind a couple of those :p

Rainbow Budgies are quite difficult to produce as if your starting from scratch they can take a couple of seasons to get, they are a Yellowface or Goldenface Opaline Clearwing Blue Series Budgie. I have some birds that are Greywing instead of Clearwing lol but look equally as stunning.
Some colours will always be less common as they may be hidden in the Genes for a few generations.

However personally for me I LOVE Lacewings, I have found these hard to come by but have finally managed to get a couple again, I also wouldn't mind a Blue Series TCB. :)

My personal favs are the the deep yellow ones... I saw 2 albinos at petsmart last night... quite young ones too.

Really? The violets? The chica who gave me Maybe wanted to give me a violet and two others too.

I have to google blackface. That sounds awesome.
