Hi everyone, I was hoping you could help me figure out what my new little budgie is. I never thought I would get a red-eyed budgie, but this little one just caught my eye. The pics are a bit dark, so you can't tell very easily, but the eyes are a dark ruby red color. Plus, I really liked its personality, it seemed pretty mellow and unafraid of people. Also, I thought it would compliment my other bird, Bravo. After looking at mutations, I think it may be a creamino. Do you think so? If not, what is it????? Also, do you think it's a male or female? It is tough to tell from the cere, but its vacalizations sound more female to me. I'm hoping it's a girl, cause that's what I wanted in case I ever decide to breed her with my male (of course only when they are of age and I have educated myself about breeding!). I think I will name it Perry, but I'm still undecided. If I get a clearer idea of its sex, I may choose a more gender appropriate name:cool: Here is my new baby...







Thanks, Whitney

That is a stunning budgie and if I saw him at a store I would have brought him home even though I do not intend on buying anymore. Looks like a creamino but I am not sure if they have those wing markings so someone else with knowledge will have to answer. I would also say boy but I am not sure what the cere should be on this mutation. So... I am no help and all words but I can tell you that has to be the prettiest budgie I have ever seen :)

Edit See the answer always comes when I am rambling :)

You have a yellow face lacewing. It is quite young and the cinnamon markings will get darker after it has moulted. Can't be sure about the sex. I think it's female, if it is the cere will lighten over the next few weeks. If it is male it's cere will stay pink all it's life

Almost an identical match to my YF2 albino! The only noticeable difference right now is the addition of the cinnamon markings! Gorgeous :D

Wasnt there someone looking for this sort of bird? A YF2 lacewing albino?

I'm not sure what colours it is, but I think it's a male.

WoW! Thanks everyone! I can't believe I chose a rare mutation!!!! I am not very good with my mutations, I know a bit, but not much. I just saw this bird and really liked the looks of it. I hope she does turn out to be famale, I am curious what I would get if I bred her to my other bird. Thanks again for helping me I.D. her.

Yup, I started the post a while back about a creamino lacewing...
Gah, I wish I could find a budgie like that!
She, or he... is just gorgeous- great find!
