Unhappy Sam's Strange Feathers...

Hmmmmmm....Sam's tail feathers are a different shade to his normal body feathers. His normal body feathers are yellow, BUT two of his tail feathers are browny-yellow. I've also realised that some of his feathers on his wings are different shades of yellow too. Like, most of his feather is yellow, BUT, the tips are a darker shade.

I'm slightly confused....what does this mean?

Hi "Sam The Budgie",

Have you got pictures of what you've described...and are the "darker, brown, colouration" only on the edges of the tail feathers....?

If it's brown markings it could be signs of cinnamon ...while, if such "dark markings" are on the edge of feathers, it could indicate "spangle"....but for the latter gene it would have been more evident from such (similar) markings on wings...but lets wait for your photo...

...I'm sure the TB experts will have the answer for you quick-quick!

Okay guys, my computer is still being slow so I decided to attach them instead. As you can see, she darker tail feathers. These grew out after she moulted.

It looks as if you have a clearflight or greywing because the feathers seem grey in colour instead of brown. I will leave it down to the experts though

Hmmmm....interesting. At first I thought he was a lutino. Her eyes are like a REAAALLLY REAAALLLY REALLLLY dark reddishy colour, possibly black...but she is nearly one year old, so possibly it her eye shade is getting lighter.

It looks like cinnamon showing through

If the eyes are dark red your bird is probably a very lightly marked lacewing
