Default A little help?

Hi, I've been lurking your forums since I bought my first budgie about 6 months ago and finally decided to register up and post. I figured I'd start by posting a a couple of my budgies. Would anyone be able to help me out with the mutations of these little girls?

The one dressed in yellow is Charles Montgomery Burns. I know, not a girls name but look at that face. And in the white; Alfredo. You can see she also has some blue on her bum, belly and a little bit by the cheeks.

In case it causes any confusion the gray horizontal lines are shadows.

I am not sure but your budgie is very cute! Almost looks like a male to me though. But I could be wrong.

Could very well be a male, I'm very new to this and you would probably know better than I.

Monty is about 6 months old, Alfredo would be about three months older.

Lovely budgies. Monty looks like a clearflight split for recessive pied. I expect her to have a clear patch on her head and a yellow face type 2. Alfredo is a dark eyed clear with black eyes and no iris rings. This is the mutation shown by this picture. A little blue is normal since she is a blue series bird.

Thank you so much! Would you have any knowledge as to the gender of Monty? I always thought "she" was female.

Charles Montgomery Burns is a yellow face clearwing dominant pied sky blue. Not sure of the sex (if the photo was taken with a flash probably male). The bright body colour shows the clearwing mutation, the clear areas on the lower body and the flight feathers show the dominant pied. A very beautiful bird

Alfredo is a recessive pied male. As he has so few markings it is possible that he has another mutation as well. I would doubt that he is a dark eyed clear with such a definite patch of blue showing

I think the pictures may be a bit deceiving. Alfredos cere is pink and I am almost positive is female (but really what do I know). Montys cere does not usually appear so blue, but I am not as sure.

Either way I was mostly interested in mutation. Tomorrow I will take a better picture and post it. Thank you everyone for your help! I was very curious and would never have figured it out myself.

Pink is male, not female. Light blue with a overall whitishness is female in a young budgie, or one out of condition. With some mutations, males stay pink their whole lives.

Sorry, don't know mutations, but I do know that they are very cute!
