Hi everyone!

I was just wondering if anyone could provide some insight as to my budgies mutuations? I was also wondering if anyone could provide any guesses as to what colours my new babies are going to be. My female budgie Larry is green with a yellow face, and my male is blue with a white face. In their first clutch I got 3 babies:
1: yellow face and green body
2: yellow face and green/blue body
3: white face and grey body

I was surprised to see a grey baby in their last clutch. This time around I am expecting 5 babies, 2 have hatched so far. Im excited to see what they look like. So I was just wondering if anyone had any guesses?

Larry isn't green she is blue,grey with a yellow face type two, normal. The grey, blue mixed with yellow face makes the body color look green.
Chuck is normal, blue.
1: Normal, blue, grey, yellow face.
2: Normal, blue, grey, yellow face
3: Normal blue, grey.

You should get...
all normals again unless your pair is split for something you haven't seen yet.
about half blues and half blue greys
And half yellow face half white face
Good luck!

Your female is a Type 2 yellow face grey. With type 2 yellow face budgies the yellow will usually spread and make grey or blue look greenish

Your male is a normal sky blue

The 3 chicks in the photo are 2 yellow face greys & 1 normal grey

The expected result from this pair would be:
25% grey
25% yellow face grey
25% blue
25% yellow face blue
