  1. New Budgie Arrivals
    I've owned parakeets in the past, however, this is my first albino. I thought she was pure white until I examined her closely. While her eyes are the standard red/dark pink and her legs are flesh of an albino, her feathers have a very soft pink hue to them. The part of the feathers just above...
  2. Your Budgie's Health
    I recently met a budgie breeder who has a pair of albino budgies he is planning on breeding. Assuming both birds are healthy and not related, does breeding two albino birds together have an genetic risks or disadvantages? Do albino birds have any health issues?
  3. Mutations and Genetics
    Wanted to share and get some info! I came across this budgie in a pet store and was baffled. I love the albino/ino mutations, but I've never seen one patterned like this. It had the red eyes and everything. A lot of its cage mates were lutinos and albinos. I wasn't sure if this was some sort of...
  4. Your Budgie's Health
    My new albino budgie seems to be feeling it's way around with it's beak. When I put it in the cage, it didn't hop off my hand until it bumped against the perch. It doesn't really react if you put your hand close to it. It doesn't try to fly unless startled, but it is constantly climbing. When it...
  5. Budgie Pictures
    Here are some pictures of Milly (albino female) and Pekoe (yellow male). I'm not really sure what variation Pekoe is, recessive pied? This is around when I first got Milly, she was just under a year old. How bashful! Sleepy puff. Such a good birdie. Here is baby Pekoe, his feathers...
  6. General Budgie Talk
    Hello! I'm Triosky, and I have recently adopted two budgies, a normal green/yellow female named Sparks, and a pure-white male named Bino. The two of them get along well, it seems, but do have their arguments from time to time as do any birds. Sparks is the more playful of the two and tends to...
  7. Mutations and Genetics
    I'm going to breed my budgies for the first time in their lives, in about a year or so. But I'm really curious about the possible color outcome, since I know quite a few people that wants some of the chicks, and I couldn't find anything about "skyblue + albino". I have bred budgies before...

  9. Introductions
    Hi everyone! I'm not only completely new to here but to also owning a budgie too!!!! So I thought I would get myself involved in a well educated forum in case I need some help with my little one. It may shock some people just how new I am to having a budgie - my grandfather kept and breed them...
  10. Mutations and Genetics
    Hello Everybody, These budgies are two years old and we have just bred from them for the first time. We have always believed that they are clearwings, but recently we have started to doubt this. Please could anybody identify the pair from the pictures given? Interestingly, the outcomes of...
  11. Mutations and Genetics
    Hey guys, I have a white female budgie who is albino (red eyes) and a male budgie who is the natural colour (Not mutated colours or anything). I have a decision to make and I want to know what sort of colours I would get from chicks if these two did actually produce a clutch? I've heard...
  12. Mutations and Genetics
    I bought little Aello from Petsmart on the 12th, have despite all the research I did on mutations and colouring, i have yet to find out his/her gender and mutation grouping. Aello is of course the one in front. Ignore Kiwi's curiosity with the camera. Is white with faint tints of yellow on...
  13. Mutations and Genetics
    I had to show her off since she's so pretty. She's my albino with blue irises. :D (This is the closest zoom I could get of her) ;)
  14. Mutations and Genetics
    I'm new with genetics and recently took a huge interest in it now. So just out of the blue I thought I'd ask if there's such a thing as dilute lutino or if the only close thing to that would be a cremino? If you crossed a lutino and an albino would you get a cremino?
  15. Mutations and Genetics
    Ok, I wasn't sure if I should put this post here or under "stories", but I guess it could go either way. Short story here, 2 years ago I purchased my first budgie thinking it was an albino. And until last night I found out it wasn't an albino! :eek: I was looking at this website...
  16. Mutations and Genetics
    So I mentioned in another thread that despite information I'm finding on the web stating Inos are supposed to have red eyes with white iris rings, MY inos do not have iris rings. I wanted to be sure I wasn't imagining things, so I gathered my inos together and photographed them. It was hard to...
  17. Mutations and Genetics
    Attached are photos of a bird that came from the set of parents in the first picture. Because mom is not an albino, it seems this bird MUST be a female. I'm assuming mom is cinnamon and dad is split for albino, and the combination of their genes gave me this lacewing - she's about 5 months...
