Default I'm also wondering about the color of Gem.

Hi,

First off I would like to thank everyone that replied to my last post! It was really interesting hearing what color Tucker is. I am also curious what color Gem is and if there is any color mutaitons effecting her.

She's just a baby. I'm guessing she's about 3-4 months old. Maybe a little younger. Her eyes are still fairly dark. Her markings aren't black but they aren't as light as the greywings I've seen pictures of. What color is she please?

Thank you for your help! I'm having fun learning about budgie color.

Maybe she's just a normal colored budgie but just lighter colored?

I don't really know too much about colors, but it looks like she could have cinnamon in her??

I am switching between normal and cinnamon, the markings look a bit light to be normals but not quite right to be cinnamon.

I agree with light green. She could be a greywing, I have a cock who is a greywing and his markings are just as dark, I know for sure he is greywing because I got greywing chicks from him

She cant be a normal her cheek patches are not right for that... I am leaning more to cinnamon than greywing but that is a possibility too

Thank you all! Hmmm... maybe after she's old enough her babies could give us a clue? But then then the male could also throw his own interesting color quirks in too I'm guessing. lol. Ooooo, maybe I can look a cinnamon male to pair up with Gem. The fun part now is I can keep my eye out for beautiful budgies and enjoy them while they're young and learn all I can in the mean time. It'll be at least 4-6 + months before I can put any in the breeding cages.
