  1. Mutations and Genetics
    Hello! I'm new here, I found TalkBudgies while trying to find information about my budgies mutations. I'm a newbie with budgies, I've only had budgies for about a year and a half now, and I mostly have them as pets (I tame mine and let them free fly around the house). I was sold two "rainbow"...

    Hi! I've recently joined this forum, and I was just wondering if my budgie has a rainbow mutation? It doesn't change anything if she doesn't, and she's still quite young, but she's a lovely little girl and it would just be interesting to find out. I think she's a little stunner whatever mutation...

    Hi, I have two budgies, Ollie and miss Daisy- I would love some help with determining their mutations! They are still quite young.

    Can anyone tell what kind of rainbow mutation this little chap is? I don't know if rainbows change with age but he's 9 weeks old!
  9. Mutations and Genetics
    Hi, I've heard that these two mutations are easily mixed up, so here I am asking someone who knows a lot about this stuff to tell me if my new budgie Ushi is a sky blue violet or a cobalt. In the picture, he looks almost like plain old sky blue, but in true life he looks a lot darker. I've also...
