Default Gradual Colour changing bird...

Hi All,

As promised in an earlier thread (refer "mystery bird from Dries", https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=78530&page=4)...

...I took these recent pictures showing how one of my cock birds body colour almost keep on changing...not as often as weekly, but every "so often month" there's another varying colour pattern visible in the body colour....

Here at 7-weeks age:-

Here at 3 months (or a bit older,after 1st moult!):-
Gradual Colour changing bird...-3months_budgy04-11_0208e1s.jpg

Gradual Colour changing bird...-3months_budgy04-11_0210e1s.jpg

..and most recent at 9months:-
Gradual Colour changing bird...-9months_budgy1011_0039e1s.jpg

Gradual Colour changing bird...-9months_budgy1011_0043e1s.jpg

(he was a "New Year baby"!..he,he!)

In between at around 6-months he only had a single bright yellow-spot on the lower chest, this has now gone...and another 2 yellow-spots have since appeared, replacing the former ..with one spot above each hip!

Any idea(s) on what is happening here....will such changes continue, or is there a gene involved that causes such changes?

Any help will be good!

Enjoy,and stay well!

JacodK
PS-Maybe me and Dries (that both do colony breeding)should stop confusing the TB members...but it's all fun and a learning experience!....thx!

It almost looks like different birds!! Very interesting. Although it is a beautiful bird, he was absolutely a stunner in the beginning.

...thanks Dries....

Yes,and I'm almost certain there is no "pied" in the mix....albeit that the two "separate yellow spots on lower belly"...now appear to start merging into a "Stripe across the belly" (simlar to pied)?

...really peculiar?!

There are always changes in colour when a bird matures or moults. Most shades will brighten after the first moult. The 3 yellow face mutations show the most obvious changes because the yellow spreads as well as brightens after each moult.

The stripe across the belly is unusual

Violet is another shade that can look quite different each year on the same bird

That is so cool! I knew budgies change colors after their first molt, but I never thought that would happen...!

Thanks Magic Birdie,
I was also very surprise when I started noticing these changes happen...but it's exciting...what will he look like next year this time, I wonder?....will post more pics, if any further change happens!

Thx! yes, he's close to being my favourite...funny his brother (closely resembling him) and sister do not have the same colouration effects...the hen is now a more "sea-green", but in full-body shade..!

..but you have a great looking yellow-face bird yourself, don't you...is it just the one or more?

Thx Apolline/ Lisa! .. he's a good variation on my other birds...but I hoped the "vibrant cobalt blue" remain, like his brother...but hey, I enjoy them just as they turnout to be!!

..maybe he's a "mutation-within-a-mutation"...he, he!

Are there any other TB-birds out there having similar changes...why not post some of yours?!
