  1. Mutations and Genetics
    I have 2 budgies, Zelda and Link. Zelda is the white/blue female who is 1 year old and the granddaugther of 2 of my previous budgies (Fuglebugl & Cookie). Link is the green youngling, who I just picked up recently, and he is around 3 months old. I wasn't sure I wanted to mate them, but they get...

    I am having trouble finding information regarding my budgie's unique markings. He only has markings on his left wing. How rare is this? Thanks!
  3. Mutations and Genetics

    I know they are both males but would love some info about their coloring and/or mutations. Buttercup has since passed and Stormy and Sparkle are the newest to the family. Stormy has no long tail feather. I was wondering if this is normal? I was told they are about 10 months to a year old...

  8. Mutations and Genetics
    Ok, I just bought a new budgie yesterday. I named him Buster. I knew he had a special color but when I looked closer today he had more "special" then I thought. I was just looking at this article on the internet. http://www.budgie-info.com/budgie-body-colors.html And I saw that my budgie...
  9. Mutations and Genetics
    So I've spent two solid days re-exploring all of the budgie color mutation information I have stored in my head and I STILL cannot come up with a solid explanation for the coloration of this bird. This is my daughter's new budgie named Tiger. He was so striking when I saw him I had to pick...
