AUTUMN-Yellowface Mauve Spangle -The Newest Addition


I was wondering what type of yellowface she will be ( I believe she will be type 2 as if I remember correctly chicks that have pale yellowfaces as babies are normally type 2 as well as some of the pale yellow is also showing up in her wings) and I was also wanting to make sure I was correct in calling her blue color mauve.

Does anyone have pictures of a yellowface type 2 mauve budgie so I can see what she may look like once she molts...

Autumn is so pretty and I love her name! I can't answer your question though, but someone will be here who can I am sure!

She's beautiful! She appears to be a type 2 YF to me. Are her wing markings brown? I'm only asking because on my computer, she looks cinnamon to me which would soften the body color and that can sometimes make a cobalt look more mauvy. I have a cobalt greywing who photographs mauve-ish. Also, her cheek patches look softer than the normal bright blue. I'm sure someone with more knowledge
Will come along soon and tell you for sure.

no her wings are darker she photographs different for her body color than she is in reality. as for the cheek spots I am not positive but does the spangle gene do that in budgies?

I don't think the spangle would cause a color difference in the cheek spots, although I do believe it can effect the quality of the spots, if that makes sense. Guess we will wait for someone else to comment. :) BTW, do you know her parentage?

no I have no idea what her parentage is.

yes I have heard that the spangle may or may not have cheek spots. hopefully someone who knows more about genetics than I do can help. I think she is beautiful either way.

she still has not molted either. so she could be type one or two I'm not sure if you can tell before the molt for type one or two.

after you suggesting that she could be cinnamon I took a closer look and the spangle markings do appear to be cinnamon. could she be a cinnamon violet yellowface spangle? rather than a cinnamon mauve yellowface spangle?

Her body color is very similar to my greywing violet cobalt so yes, I think she could be a YF cinnamon spangle violet factored cobalt (or mauve) but violet factor is hard to determine in photographs.

I agree with Erin, she looks like a yellowface 2 cobalt violet cinnamon spangle :) She is diluted and has lavender cheek patches with cinnamon wing markings so thats why I would say she is cinnamon.

Ideally the standard for a spangle is for them to have bullseye throat spots, it does not remove the spots all together though that happens from pairings and genetics. I see many wild type budgies with no cheek spots at all though and I think that is probably the case with her :)
