Just curious as to why Truffle has bars on her forehead when she is definitely a mature bird. Don't most adults have clear foreheads? Mutations are a fascinating thing, which I do not understand one bit! hehe.
Here cere is definitely not blue! Must be the way the picture is showing up on your screen. It's a dark brown and a bit crusty looking if you look close.She look like a he in that picture.
Looks like a blue cere.
But maybe its just the picture.
Thanks! I don't ever plan on breeding unless she lays fertile eggs and I can't bring myself to throw them out. But she and Sprite aren't even really bonded yet so it's the furthest thing from my mind.The bars are indeed a fault, but because of it you have a nice budgie that is not good for the show bench. If you decide to breed this bird, try breeding it to another opaline to clear the head issue.
