Hi,
I've found a really nice woman who breeds budgies near us.
She has this pair who's chicks are just hatching (1 out of 6 so far!)
and I might be getting a baby :)
Can anyone tell me what colours and mutations we might suspect?
Little is known about the mum as this is her first clutch. She is the Gray bird.

In a previous breeding to a lutino female dad produced lutino & blue chicks. He is the blue bird.

Just wondering what colour chicks we might expect.
Thanks!

I know nothing and can't help, but they are certainly beautiful birds!
I'd be very excited to know what babies they had. I hope they hatch
just the perfect bird for you :)

Hi. The hen looks like an opaline grey an the male a cobalt full body color
Greywing. If he produced lutinos before, he must be split to ino so you cAn expect albino babies. Grey is dominant to normal so some chicks will be grey. None of the chicks will be opaline unless the male is split to it. and you won't get any greywings unless the hen is split to it. So, assuming no one is split to anything except the male being split to ino (as you said he was), you can expect normal blues and greys and maybe some albinos. I think. :)

I agree with Erin. Maybe you know it, but I just to explain why you will get albinos and not lutinos: both birds are blue series birds - so the ino you'll get will also be blue series and therefor albino.

I did know this, but its easy to forget :)

Is the Grey budgie rare?
