I'm starting to think about future breeding pairs, and from them I'd love to get some different varieties, so I thought that the best way would be to work out exactly what type of budgies I have, and what I could expect from different pairings. I've made up these images to compile into a sort of notebook of all my budgies, to help me keep track of them all.

Some of my birds have already been 'diagnosed', so I'll be adding what was said for them in brackets after their pictures, in case anyone disagrees.

It might also be made easier by the fact that for many of them, you can see their parents/offspring. I'll be adding that information in, too.


(Type 2 Yellow Face spangle cobalt)


(Opaline spangle light green)


(Double factor spangle [green series])
Father of Sora, Kin, and Gidget


(Yellow face cinnamon opaline spangle sky blue / Yellow face type 2 cinnamon sky blue)
Mother of Sora, Kin, and Gidget


[Somehow I don't have a back photo of him. I can get one if necessary.]
Father of Mo, Tommy, and Jimmy


Mother of Mo, Tommy, and Jimmy


Sammy x Stormy


Sammy x Stormy


Sammy x Stormy


Yuki x Jazz


Yuki x Jazz


[Note that although it is invisible in every single photo I have ever taken, Gidget does have some blue spots - one on his lower stomach, and one between his wings. It is very faint.]
Yuki x Jazz

And there they are. Now to make things even more difficult. For those who like playing with genetics, what would be the most likely results if I bred:
-Stormy x Yuki
-Song x Yuki
-Blair x Kin
-Jazz x Mo
And, just for the fun of it since they are madly in love, Mo x Sora.

-Stormy x Yuki
T2Yellow face opaline cinnamon recessive pied mauve female & T2 yellow face double factor spangle male (I don't think he is green series):
50% single factor type 2 yellow face spangle blue
25% double factor type 2 yellow face spangle blue
25% white face spangle blue
The opaline, Cinnamon & recessive pied won't show unless Yuki is split for any of these mutations

-Song x Yuki
Opaline spangle light green female & T2 yellow face double factor spangle male
If song is not split for blue

100% green spangle
If Song is split for blue
50% green spangle
25% YF spangle blue
25% blue spangle
The opaline won't show unless Yuki is split for opaline

-Blair x Kin
Type 2 Yellow Face spangle cobalt male & & T2 yellow face double factor spangle female (Kin is probably a double factor T2 yellow face)
Assuming Kin's yellow face is double factor:
25% double factor yellow face double factor spangle
25% single factor yellow face double factor spangle
25% double factor yellow face single factor spangle blue
25% single factor yellow face single factor spangle blue
If Kin is not double factor yellow face about 25% of the chicks will be white faced


-Jazz x Mo
T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline spangle sky blue female & T2 yellow face opaline cobalt male split cinnamon & recessive pied
6.25% single factor T2 yellow face opaline spangle cobalt
6.25% single factor T2 yellow face opaline spangle sky blue
3.125% double factor T2 yellow face opaline spangle cobalt
3.125% double factor T2 yellow face opaline spangle sky blue
3.125% opaline spangle cobalt
3.125% opaline spangle sky blue
6.25% single factor T2 yellow face opaline cobalt
6.25% single factor T2 yellow face opaline sky blue
3.125% double factor T2 yellow face opaline cobalt
3.125% double factor T2 yellow face opaline sky blue
3.125% opaline cobalt
3.125% opaline sky blue
6.25% single factor T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline spangle cobalt
6.25% single factor T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline spangle sky blue
3.125% double factor T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline spangle cobalt
3.125% double factor T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline spangle sky blue
3.125% cinnamon opaline spangle cobalt
3.125% cinnamon opaline spangle sky blue
6.25% single factor T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline cobalt
6.25% single factor T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline sky blue
3.125% double factor T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline cobalt
3.125% double factor T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline sky blue
3.125% cinnamon opaline cobalt
3.125% cinnamon opaline sky blue
The recessive pied won't show unless Jazz is split for recessive pied

And, just for the fun of it since they are madly in love, Mo x Sora.
T2 yellow face opaline cobalt male split cinnamon & recessive pied & T2 Yellow face spangle blue female (she is probably double factor T2 yellow face)
Assuming Sora is double factor yellow face:

25% T2 yellow face blue males
25% T2 yellow face spangle blue males
12.5% T2 yellow face opaline blue females
12.5% T2 yellow face opaline spangle blue females
12.5% T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline blue females
12.5% T2 yellow face cinnamon opaline spangle blue females
If Sora is double factor yellow face half of the chicks will be double factor yellow face and half will be single factor. If she is not DF YF half of the chicks will be single factor YF, a quarter will be DF YF & a quarter will be white faced

Wow. What a response by nev90. I love the colors of Blair and Jazz.
