Hmm, feather stress? hno: I hope not, or if it is I hope I can calm down whatever the source of it was. He is a very hyperactive bird, when he hears the rest of my budgies across the house making noise, he flock calls frantically pacing in circles. The breeder said he used to pace when she walked in the room, maybe that was him freaking out like this.

I'll check tomorrow to see if his eyes are dark red or black. Honestly I haven't looked under all those feathers yet.

The breeder says Terry's mom is a light gray cinnamon regular and his dad is a big bright violet opaline

Hi Tiimarie,

Yes agreed...great looking bird...the opalescence does let him look extra special...I would have gone for an "opaline guess" myself, but given Nev mentioned the same for one of my birds...and the absence of the mantle to back of head, puts that gene-option to bed.....I'm however still not sure how such opalescence occur, or what the genetic reasons are for it though....it looks great none-the-less, for whatever reason it happens....

Nev,
Such opalescence isn't a sign of a bird being "split" for it, is it?

The patchiness in his body color could be caused by feather stress.

What a pity he was allowed him to grow up with splayed legs. An experienced breeder would have fixed the problem when it first started to develop
Hi Nev,
..maybe a question ..best asked somewhere outside this thread subject....but how does "splayed-legs" get treated?...if treated at early age, as you've suggested?

..and what would be the cause...does it occur from hatching age / any condition in the nest?

thx for now!

Some people think it's a sign that the bird is split for opaline but as hens can also show opalescence the theory doesn't hold water

Splayed legs can be caused by deficiencies but more common causes are a wet or slippery base in the nest or the hen sitting too tightly on the chick. Often adding extra bedding in the nest and putting a large marble in the nest to keep the hen up from the chicks will prevent splayed legs developing. If they do get splayed legs it is easily fixed in a few days with a string noose. Treatment needs to be done before the chick is two weeks old because if the condition is left too long it can't be cured

Based on what his parents are, he is definitely a cinnamon violet with a possible split to opaline. But regardless, he is gorgeous and he better come back negative for any and all diseases! It's not allowed!

Thanks! What do you think about the white feathers that made me think he was pied? Do you think it's feather stress and the markings will go away in a future molt or something?

Argh I hope so! I've been going crazy all weekend, knowing that the days "didn't count" towards the day when the vet will call. Now that it's a weekday again I'm all like "okay it's a weekday again, one day down only a few more to go." I'm hoping for the call around Wednesday-Thursday. I'm all paranoid too when I scrub my hands after changing their food. Or when I leave their room I feel like I'm trailing some mega-germ around on my feet. Ahhhhh.

Are those white feathers on the back of his head?
