This may seem a little silly, but I'm trying to practice mutations, but I'm having a hard time finding birds online that have the mutations underneath them. I was wondering (for those that know their budgies mutations) if I could use your photos to practice? :D I feel foolish asking, but I really want to get good at this. I might be getting a job at a pet store, and how cool would it be if I could tell the people buying parakeets or English Budgies just what they are getting? :D

**EDIT** I would be trying to figure out what your budgie is ... please don't give me the answers until I try. :p

Oh... I meant I wanted to try and figure it out ... :XD: But, thank you!!!

And I have an interview with PetCo ... which, they are getting better. Maybe if I work there, I can really get them to be great. :)

Oh Sorry Sorry!!!!
I feel stupid now!
But it's okay, I guess.
You'll base..other birds on my birds.
And it'll help you.
Again.
Sorry!

No no! Thank you so much! :) And I will, actually. :) They are my inspiration now. Hehe. I read a mutation site through and through. I'm now testing my knowledge. :) I'm trying. Sexing I'm still getting used to. I'm not sure about some things, but I'll figure it all out. Thank you again.

Mutations are hard!

Are you also trying to guess age? I was wondering if you could help me identify how old he is?
Three of the pictures are two months old, the first one is from Saturday (the can I play outside one).
The back of his eye is just now starting to show a white iris.






Thanks and good luck!
