im new to the whole mutation thing, so im not sure.
would a bird that is entirely yellow with cinnamon markings be called a cinnamon lutino? or a cinnamon yellow? or something else altogether? lol. i tried to figure it out myself using the link in the sticky, but couldnt - i got confuzzled :rolleyes: lol

here she is
excuse the bad photos they were taken on my mobile (and taken sneakily too ;))




also, what are the likely outcomes if i decided to breed (not sure if i will yet, need to learn more first and decide if i would be able to deal with problems that would arise etc!!!) these birds:

all white female
the cinnamon yellow bird from above

cobalt normal male
green normal male

thank you in advance for your help

i found something on this website
http://www.budgiesforsale.co.uk/budgie-varieties.html
The Opaline Budgie. There are six variations of Opaline, all with V shaped designs in their backs and yellow face masks barring the Skyblue, whose has a white face mask. The six variations being; Opaline Green (purple cheek spots and throat spots), Opaline Light Green (grassy green in colour but lighter than the Cinnamon),Opaline Cinnamon Light Green (spots being cinnamon brown), Opaline Dark Green (deep green plumage),Opaline Skyblue (skyblue plumage), Opaline Olive Green (even olive green plumage) and the Opaline Grey Green (fully green feathers).
so if there is only one type of cinnamon opaline, that means she is
opaline cinnamon light green instead of olive???
is that right or have i messed up again lol

Your bird is an opaline cinnamon olive (or possible opaline cinnamon grey green). The cinnamon gene reduces the body colour making the green shade very pale.

The correct name for a cinnamon lutino is "lacewing". It would have red eyes, cinnamon wing markings and clear yellow body colour (or white if it was blue series)

In your photo your bird looks like a female. Both opaline and cinnamon are sex-linked mutations so the male would need to have these mutations for them to show in the chicks

from what i know, even though cinnamon and opaline are both sex linked mutations, they work independently. Hence, a cinnamon gene could appear in any color opaline and not only in light green opalines.
someone please correct me if i am wrong. i am too learning :)

you are correct:D

every budgie has one of the six basic body colours: light green, dark green, olive, skyblue, cobalt or mauve.

from there the different varieties alter the appearance of the markings or basic colour. and many of the varieties can be present at one time on a single bird.

so you can get any variety in each of the six body colours. of course some of the varieties (such as ino) will hide the body colour, but it is still genetically there...

so an opaline cinnamon can come in any of the body colours!:)
