  1. Mutations and Genetics
    Hello! This is the first time I have ever used a forum before and I'm not super well-versed on parakeet anatomy so please be patient with me as I work this out! c: I have a budgie that I'm unsure of the mutation. I had assumed he was sort of standard green, but I noticed recently that the...
  2. 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...
  3. Mutations and Genetics
    I'v always been curious about colorations, mutations, morphs and such with different animals, and was wondering what my Charlie is. Also, if anyone else has pictures and types of their birds they want to add, I would love to see them! :budge:
  4. Mutations and Genetics
    Hello :) I brought home a new friend today and if you couldn't tell I've never researched the different genetics and mutations of budgies. I was just curious what this little guy/girl has in him/her. If anyone could let me know it would be high appreciated. (I apologise if the photos aren't...
  5. Diseases and Illnesses
    So I really don't know where to start. I got my beautiful baby budgie Yama about a month ago from a breeder that was recommended by a friend. This friend bought his previous budgies from this gentleman and was always happy with the budgies he received. Within the first few days I noticed that...
  6. Mutations and Genetics
    Hi guys. I thought I'd put this here in case anyone is confused on how to breed a basic rainbow budgie - that is, a bird such as this: And who's mother was this: The factors in producing a nice looking rainbow: - Opaline - Blue - Violet factor (optional but visually stunning) - Yellowface...
  7. Mutations and Genetics
    This is dad- a normal cobalt, split to ino and opaline. This is mum - yellow faced dominant pied. These two have produced albinos and creminos. The next three pictures are some of their offspring - all with red/ruby eyes. The first I initially thought was a female lacewing which I now believe...
  8. Mutations and Genetics
    Hi- Anyone else have a surprise color outcome?? Look at this pic: http://talkbudgies.com/photoplog/index.php?n=17433 Papa is Tim (Lower Left) Mama Lemonade (is on my avitar) Two Yellow Birds. There is a touch of pale green on Tim's Back We have 3 hatchlings. When the biggest and noisiest...
  9. Mutations and Genetics
    So have looked at the sticky threads and linked articles and they seem to cover everything I need but I think its always best to have a second opinion from you wonderful people. Being a student nurse I can grasp how genetics work and so forth but I would just like to know if you can verify the...
  10. Mutations and Genetics
    Please, what mutations are they? Ok i think Annabell is Opaline But what about my other babies Kiwi - He has a yellow spot on the back of his head. Could he have some kinda of pied in him? Sky - She has a little less blue now and there's two different blues, one a little bit darker than...
  11. Mutations and Genetics
    She's too young right now, by my recessive pied cinnamon mauve (Diamond) and my dilute cinnamon skyblue (Pepper) are bonded and I'm sure will one day be having babies. What possibilities would there be among the offspring?
  12. Mutations and Genetics
    I have my ideas but I just want to be certain. Here are the first two! And here are the other pair. The hens wing markings etc are a grey/brown colour, alot lighters than the ****s. Thanks!!
  13. Mutations and Genetics
    Hello :D A friend of mine wanted to know what colour/variety their budgies are... And also your predictions of what would he get if they mate :) Here you have the male on the left and female on the right... Male again... And female :p Thank you :)
  14. Mutations and Genetics
    HIIIIIII EVERYONE :p I spend many hours in Talk Budgies cause I just love it... I've come across a lot of different colours, even ones that I didn´t know it existed :speechless-smiley-0 I'm so confused and perplexed right now.. specially with all the "spangle, pied, opaline" and other...
  15. Mutations and Genetics
    For all the smarty pants breeders and just plain smarty pants out there :giggle: I know this question probably has already been asked but.... can you have incomplete dominance in budgies? Or any other birds, in that case? I know that you can have that in most mammals and some other species :S...
  16. Mutations and Genetics
    I found out that my two parakeets, that are brother and siters, mated and used one of the nesting box i put for the other parakeets. I one day saw them inside it and i checked the nesting box and there was one egg, what should i do? will my babies die because the parents are siblings?
  17. Mutations and Genetics
    What Mutation Is "Boody" my budgie he's the one on the right Thanks
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. Mutations and Genetics
    So I have 3 very similarly mutated budgies and have a good hunch as to their mutations but as always, I love hearing what the experts think - and even those who don't consider themselves experts!! Everyone welcome to offer their opinion! I believe Joey is a skyblue greywing because his grey...
