Hello all, havent been around much, Caught up in my own life.
I pop in every so often to read your stories & catch up.

Check out these two. 1 male 1 female.

Male looks deficent hence markin above nostrils.
Mauve or grey, dom pied, cinnamon.

Female has a dirty vent, looks pied also. Pictures dont show colour well.
BOth bird have slight scaly face & mites. I will be taking care of them now.
Also fed on Australian trill which is bad, no vegies and bad perches. yuk.

Everones opinions, and ideas to help. Will also be dosing with apple cidar
vinegar in water, and lice spraying.

I'm guessing the hen (which has iris rings) is a yellow face type 1 double factor dominant pied sky blue and the **** bird is a normal blue-based gray. But please wait for Nev to come along to confirm or most likely correct.

Double factor dominant pied: http://www.***************/colorsguide.html#dominantpied.
Gray color-adding factor: http://www.***************/colorsguide.html#greyfactor.

Can you post lighter pics?

They're both handsome budgies. Kudos for rescuing them. :)

P.S. I just re-read your post. Do you think the male is a cinnamon http://www.***************/colorsguide.html#cinnamon mauve http://www.***************/colorsguide.html#darkfactor?

I jsut got some new photos of them on my camera.
Will upload them all soon.

I agree, female is not recessive cause she has iris's right? So shes a dom
pied, sky blue hence the blue bum. But she also look to have opaline possibly??
I can see 2 spots on her that look cinnamon coloured?

Male looks dom pied normal, but mauve or grey coloured.

Have lice sprayed them. Also ACV in water. Currently still in old cage
on cruddy perches until quarantine is over. They are currently free flight in my
room which they are loving. They are now chattering away. Have both perked up
and seem happy. Looking at the vegies like its death. Both need it, as molting and vitamin A deficiency is prominent. :) Photos to come.

The male looks like a normal grey in most of the pictures but in the 3rd picture he looks like he could be cinnamon. I can't see dominant pied in him at all

If the hen has iris rings she must be a double factor dominant pied. I don't think she's opaline. If she was cinnamon I would expect her blue areas to be slightly diluted which they don't appear to be. The pied gene often lightens the markings that are left after the pied effect, this could be what you are seeing

panasonic lumix, better than iphone. As stated perches will be replaced,
Cage is also already replaced. Let me know thoughts on mutations. They
seem bonded. Possible chick outcomes. Have some work to get them healthy
and converted to vegies.

Thanks nev, check out these pics. Male is not dom pied by looking. Has mauveish
looking tige in person...not too sure. Both look to be half English too.

Ooooooooo, the **** bird looks cinnamon mauve with gray factor. He's lovely! :D

I'm not sure whether the hen is YF1 with suffusion or YF2.

Let's wait for Nev. :)

Although the male looks mauvish it is just because the blue is showing through the grey. The colour of the cheek patches show that he is grey not mauve. The new pictures show that he is cinnamon. Why do you think he is dominant pied?

I think the hen is probably type 1 yellow face even though the yellow has spread slightly through the white areas

the male is not pied what so ever

he's a grey cinnamon

The female is a double factor dominant pied - Hence the reason she has very little markings
she's not cinnamon - sometimes the markings on pied will be a lighter color and look brown when they're not she's a type 1 sky blue

Thanks for everyones help. Nev I only thought maybe he was dom pied cause I
hadn't had a good look at him yet. I put them in to rest after the car trip and quickly
snapped photos without flash.

I thought muave cinnamon, makes sense he is a grey cinnamon :)
AS for the female, Type 1 yellowface? You say her yellow has slightly spread
through her white.. but she is yellow all over. I see cause of her bum colour she
in sky blue, and figured she was a dominant factor dominant pied, not a resessive
pied cause she has iris rings. Grace is a similar mutation.

Thanks thanks :)
