Default Seymour and Shelia chicks

My nest pair chicks are proving to be as interesting as my yellow pair's chicks.
Here are the parents..Dad flying

I expected yellow faced blues.... lol, do I have a lot to learn... I will get current picks soon. One is looking purple, 1 grey, 1 seagreen, 1 blue, and 1 I can't tell yet,,,still white fuzzy. all 6 eggs hatched but one was not fed. I took it and hand fed for 48 hours but it passed : ( It just wasn't meant to be, I guess that uis why the parents pushed it to the side away from the clutch.






I will get new picture showing the coloring of the feathers...I am suspecting violet factor...I hope
I know with gouldian finches you can tell the mutation by the chicks skin color...is this tru with budgies... they seem to all look pink to me.

the mom is a yellow face type 2 sky blue Opaline - Dad is a yellow face Cobalt your "grey" is most likely actually a Mauve it is very easy to confuse the two - the way to tell them apart once they're pretty well feathered is the Cheek patches (the little colored area on both sides of their face) A Grey Budgie will have a Silver- Grey Cheek patch, but a Mauve has a violet Cheek patch(Can be mistaken for navy blue and not violet)

If you do have a Violet baby one of the parents has the Violet Factor - the pics are kinda small for me to see very well but If I had to guess I'd say its dad

and as Shivani mentioned you can't tell a mutation by the skin color of budgies - BUT sometimes you can with the down feathers- usually bright white down (like Stark white/ Bleached white -other wise Really white and not off white lol) can mean it's Opaline , Cinnamon and if i recall Recessive pied also has white down.

Boy I am excited... I have a mauve. The little grey has violet cheek patches. I will get close ups tommorrow.And I think a yellow face violet!!!!
I knew nothing about the cbackground of these birds (other than they were not related) I just paired them to sinilar colored mates thinking I wouldn't mess their colors up too much...I am laughing at that thought now. But I am glad I paired them as I did...what surprizing chicks are popping put!
I will post my other 3 pairs ...I bet bu the time I get through all of their clutches that I will have a good grasp on the genetics.

You cannot get a mauve chick if one of the parents is sky blue

Then what would be his "grey" chick who has violet Cheek patches .. Mauve is the only thing I know of that can look like a Grey

Perhaps the female is Cobalt too - the pics are too small for me to see very well Just going by what i can see

Your chicks are cute!

I think the gray down ones will be normals and the white down ones will be opalines.

It's time to scrape the poop off the bottom of the nestbox. You might want to add unscented pine shavings to keep the box cleaner and to help prevent splay legs. (The nestbox floor looks a bit smooth. Chicks need traction so they can get their legs under them as the bones set. Otherwise, they will develop a painful deformity called splay legs.)
