Ok so I breed budgies, have been for a couple of years. One thing I'm still no expert at is determining their mutations. I've been reading a lot on genetics and have made some "guesses" at what types some of my budgies are.

I would really like to get the right info though, just in case I'm way off :D

Here are the ones I'd like to confirm, (let's see how close I was!):

This is Minx

This is Nisha

Nisha is light grey (at least looks grey to me), doesn't show well on the pictures

and finally, this is Raya:

so what would you say they are ?:budgie:

ok so I was right about the first one

although, the second one really does not seem sky blue. The picture doesn't show it well I guess, but it's definitely gray to me

Could Nisha be an Opaline Gray? :S

Minx – opaline light green

Nisha – opaline sky blue (could be grey with no dark factor but it doesn’t show in the picture)

Raya – If the colour of the wing markings in the picture is right then I think she is a heavily marked clearwing rather than a greywing. Can’t be sure of the body colour but it could be grey green

thank you so much nev!
I was hoping to hear from you, as I've seen you are quite the expert in mutations :D

I'll get some better pictures tomorrow and post them
