The first chick looks like an opaline blue. I would say a cobalt blue. The second chick looks like a normal cobalt blue. And lastly the third looks like a normal cobalt maybe grey factor as well.

They all look blue-gray or gray to me, but I'm not an expert like Bridget.

Are they yellow face? What are the parents? The last one looks mauve (could be grey) to me.

Carla, have you seen my Cody and Purdey's babies on my tread. They look nearly the same. The first one, a yellow face blue-grey, but I am not good at mutations. Ask Nev90, he always help me!!!!!!

# I agree with genetics of numbers 1 and 3....but the 2nd bird appear to have a "brown" tinge to the wing feathers....could this be a sign of cinnamon Nev?

# The cost of hand-reared birds vary a lot between countries...we in South-Africa can (at most) get about R20 to R30 (i.e. 2.0 to 2.20 GBPounds equivalent), while sales in UK is at ~ 20GBP for a pet-type bird, and in the USA some can go for ~10 USD to ~20 USD (for hand-reared)...so it is not so easy to convert, if demand / scarcity vary so much ...as it appears between these 3 countries!

Show-type birds, I'm sure will have higher sale-tag, but it's unlikely to be more than "double" that of the pet-type price....

...but when it comes to expert- /world-renowned breeders (that have been in SHOW-hobby for 20+ years)...then the price of show-type can rise to between R400 and R1,500 each (ZAR, rands), or 300GBP to 500GBP (UK prices)....

It's best to consult the local pet-store for competitive price checks or maybe TB-members like ATVchick (USA-based) can provide some pointers on what can be expected...

Good luck,
jacodK

I ask R60-R70 for a hand reared pet type budgie. I also sell my birs to two pet shops - one in Pretoria and one in Polokwane where I get between R 30 - R 40 per bird - not hand reared.

For a show type bird they will pay R 100.

One of our top breeders in SA lives in Garsfontein and his cheapest price for a bird is R 400.

I think the best that you can do is like Jaco said.

None have yellow faces they are all just white face Mumma is a normal grey i think dad is colbat lemon face. Taking there sister to the vet tonight she is very ill had bad breathing problems yesterday. I boiled some molasses waited till was luke warm gave her little bit in the mouth along with some apple cidar and a real pinch of human panadol crushd up to powder in the boiling liuid seems to have helpd somewhat. Her breathing is normal today and she has been pecking at a bit of parsley. still not drinking just gave her few drops in syringe we are seeing a vet in a few hours. poor little girl she only 6weeks old. Her crouplooks full yet mainley full of air no food. Wait see what vet says her croup alot better today tho.
