Default black & white baby budgie

hi,

i currently have two beautiful baby budgies that are 3.5 weeks old...

i was wondering if a white budgie with black flecks is common? the mother is pure yellow and the father is green, yellow, aqua.. the other baby is starting to get colours like its father but the other one is just mainly white with little bits of black!

i am in awe at how these little bundles of joy are growing and i am SO excited to watch them venture out into the world... : )

It sounds like you have a pied chick. I'm guessing that both parents are split for recessive pied. But I can't be sure until we see photos.

Both parents are very pretty, but the daddy is especially gorgeous!

And yes, that is normal for a baby to have white feathers with black flecks. She will most likely turn out to be recessive pied.

I'm no mutations expert but I'll venture some educated guesses ...

If the hen lacks iris rings, then she's a dark-eyed clear, which is a combination of recessive pied and clearflight pied. https://www.****************/colorsguide.html#darkeyed. This would explain why the younger chick (white with black specks on wings) is a recessive pied and would indicate the dad is split for recessive pied. (Recessive pied chick must inherit one recessive pied gene from each parent.)

Your budgie family is gorgeous! I love the pic of dad keeping watch.

You can scrape out the poop using a spoon when the hen leaves the nestbox.
