  1. Determining Gender
    Hello, So I thought the dude inside the cage (Fawzy) is a bit lonely and I got him a companion (Jasmine-for obvious reasons). He was extremely excited and welcoming- to an annoying level in my opinion :001_smile: Jasmine is probably around 7-8 weeks old, all white except a couple of very faint...

    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...

    Okay so I bred a female dark eyed clear with a green normal budgie last year and with their babies came out a mix of 10 dutch pied, normals, and opalines, including one that I have no idea what she is. We named her brownie and all the way until age 1 and a 1/2 she had pure black eyes and looked...

    Hi everyone, there's a bit of confusion over what mutation my hen, Sherbet is. She's yellow and I assumed she was lutino. She has the red glow in her eyes in photos, but she also has irises. So if anyone could tell me her mutation, I would be very grateful. :)

    Rumor has it that recessive pied budgies have weaker immune systems.. is it true? :(

    This is Skedaddle. He was in beautiful condition before his first moult, but since then he's looked like this. He can't grow his wing feathers. I also noticed he has a striking black pattern under his tail, but he doesn't have any black elsewhere. Is this a specific mutation?

    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...
  17. Mutations and Genetics
    For 4 weeks now I have tried to find out what colour mutation me budgie is. She has a spot on the back of her head that's blank, quite purple, and I am positive she's a cinnamon, as her markings are not black, but greyish-brown. I think she may be dominant pied? Thanks!

    I just got Tesla today, and he is about three months old. I could have sworn he was a fallow due to the orange beak, pink feet, even his colouring, but he doesn't have ruby eyes. He's unlike any budgie I have ever seen, is anyone aware of his breed? I'm pretty sure he's a male too, unless anyone...
