Thank you, I hope to have the next round more chicks. It was their fist time breeding. 3 eggs were fertile, one break and the other chick, I think they trampled it, because it was dead the morning after it hatched.That's surprising, I had the same thing happen to me with my 2013 Spring chicks.
I bred Mona a visual cobalt blue female with Carioca, a dark green male and they had 3 chicks one of them was a recessive pied just like yours only mine is yellow. You can see Peppy and the parents on my signature.
Your budgie couple, just like mine is hiding the recessive pied gene. You were very lucky to have this happen with just the one chick!
Yes, you are so right about the surprises you get.Wow, that is a pretty chick! That is what I love about budgies, they can come in so many surprising colors.
Thank you!What an absolutely gorgeous baby!
Thank you!That is a very pretty little bird.....:loveeyes:
Thank you, yes what a surprise!wow beautiful baby
these guys can really surprise you right ?
I got a recessive pied and an albino from a normal cinnamon and cobalt violet as well
Thank you!Beautiful little baby. So soft and sweet.
Thank you and I hope for a new clutch, but they are not in breeding mode at the moment.Yea both parents are split for recessive pied and it looks like it should be a size able bird from the looks of the parents.Congrats on the hidden gene.Lucky it showed up in one chick produced.Look forward to more.
Cathy,That baby is so adorable are you going to keep it? I love the markings it is like a cloud soft and fluffy.
