    Hi, I have two budgies, Ollie and miss Daisy- I would love some help with determining their mutations! They are still quite young. Ollie is roughly almost 8 months old I say and Daisy about 3 months. When I first bought Ollie he didn't have much green on his chest, he was mostly all grey there...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    Hi! My first budgie, Pepper, is a year old and the bright blue one in the photo. He's an awesome little bird, and says "Hi Pepper", "no", and does a couple of different whistles.

    These are my new budgies and I was wondering what their mutations are. I think the first one is a sky blue spangle with those cute little violet cheek patches. The second one is like a dilute but his tail is a pale sky blue while his body is more purple. The third picture is a photo of the 1st...
