Hi everyone 馃憢
I have an adult budgie girl. I raised her since she was a bald little baby 馃槀馃グ
First when she started feathering I thought she was a lutino, as she was completely yellow with red eyes.
But as she grew older, and after molting many times she showed markings on the wings.
But I can't be really sure if the markings are grayish or brownish.
It's easier in white blue budgies. But it's tricky when the body is yellow.
So what do you all think? Lacewing or Fallow? 馃馃

One of our mutations experts will have to answer your question with regard to mutation.

I have a couple of questions for you though as we always want to help ensure the health and well-being of our members' budgies. :)

Are you currently trying to breed this budgie?
How old is she?
Is she in an individual cage with the male and no other budgies?

With regard to the perches in that cage, I recommend you replace any plastic or wooden dowel perches
with natural wooden perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

Thanks for your kind reply
She is around 2 years old
She is with the male alone in a big cage, he is so sweet and caring to her. I wish all males do the same馃榿馃き
About the perches I don't really have a choice. The shops around here don't have many choices. No natural perches.
I don't force any of my budgies to breed
I leave them do whatever they want. Even if I remove the nest box, if they decide to lay eggs the girl will make a hole in the bottom of the cage and lay eggs馃槀 yes that happened before... A lot. With other pairs.. Many cages ruined 馃槵
So I put a nest box for each pair and let them decide what they want to do with their life馃槃

I'm not a expert but after some looking at budgie mutations and genetics, I think the best guess for your budgies mutation is a yellow based Lacewing.

Thank you so much for your replies 馃槏鈽
I also guessed it could be a lacewing but wasn't sure.
Pure luck to get a lacewing from non-lacewing parents
The mother is a blue yellow face oplain
The father is a green dominant pied (single factor)
I guess they have hidden genetics
