I'm new here. Five months ago a green budgie, whom I named Iris, flew into my room and demanded to be adopted. Research showed that she'd be happier with a friend, so 40 days ago I got Dawn from a gentleman who could no longer take care of his flock due to a heavy workload...
I always wanted a parakeet but never had one. This guy caught my eye at the pet store and so I went for it.
I know he's a male -- however I didn't know about aging birds before I bought him. I might have picked a younger one had I known some of the indicators, but, he's really great and...
It is with a wounded heart that I ask for help to rehome my darling budgie girl, Brine. Some unforseen changes have happened and I can no longer devote the time and companionship to her that she deserves as some life changes have taken much of my time and attention. I don't want her to...
Can anyone help identify my budgies? I read the mutation guides on Cute Little Birdies Aviary, but there were some attributes that fell into both categories.
All of my budgies have iris rings and pink feet.
Thank you. :)
Need some help identifying mutations from experts.

Okay, so I've been looking about the internet trying to determine the mutations of my two Budgies. I believe I've got it cracked finally; I'd like some conformation though. I have two Budgies one female (Herb) and one male (Spice).
I used this website -...

This is a 3 in one reference for those who have a hard time telling the difference between these 3. From left to right a greywing, a regular wing color pattern, and a cinnamon. Sorry I know it's a little blurry. I took this snapshot in Petco.;)
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...
