i have 3 budgie chicks which are 17, 15 and 13 days old.
The older 2 are going to be green as they have bright yellow pin feathers coming through on their wings, but the issue i have is that they both have blue pin feathers coming through along their back.
They do not have the yf gene as their parents are;
Male sky blue dominant pied split for opaline and cinnamon
Female violet green spangle opaline.
And the parents to the female are;
Female Green opaline
male violet blue spangle clearflight pied
(i know the yellow faced gene cant be carried as its a dominant gene but i thought id just make my point
I was wondering, are the pins appearing to be blue due to the violet gene?
