My English budgerigar Storky of 5 years died today and I really miss her and I need to know her mutation. I badly want to buy a new one exactly like her and I need to know what mutation is she and what colour combination creates it. BTW my icon is her.

Here are some pictures of her:

Wow, what a truly stunning example of an English exhibition bird, lovely markings and look at the length of her mask and her blow, unfortunately I can't help with the mutation but she obviously had some show winning parents, the first thought that came to my mind was a breeder in Australia called Corey Gallagher, he bred the highest quality birds and your Storky reminds me so much of one of Corey's quality birds, if you can find Corey on Facebook I'm sure he would help you with the mutation and if you're really lucky he may have a gorgeous replacement, Corey lived on the South coast between Adelaide and Melbourne if that helps.

She was a Texas clear body! I posted the same question on Reddit and was told that! Unfortunately, the Texas clear body is a common mutation because I see plenty similar or identical to her. She was a general pet and not entered into any shows. I live in NSW.

I'm very sorry for your loss of Storky.
Fly high and soar freely beautiful Storky, rest peacefully now wee girl.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being

Locating an Avian Veterinarian

As you are planning to get another budgie, please be sure you follow quarantine procedures.

Quarantine means housing the new bird in a different cage in a different room than the current bird (as far away from the room the current bird is in as possible) for a period of 35-45 days.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

Quarantine - Is it Really that Important?
Quarantine Your Birds

When you have mixed genders, it is very important to do everything necessary to prevent breeding.
Budgies are much healthier and happier when they are never bred.
