Hi Everyone! Yesterday I got 3 new birds! Someone was giving them away and I went to take a look. I couldn't resist bringing these 3 home, even though the previous owners wanted me to take more (like 20!!!!!). I am not very good at mutations, and I am still learning and trying to figure it out, but I will post my best guesses, then all you experts can correct me:p Lol! Here the little cuties are:

Bird 1: Male, Dominant Pied Mauve





Bird 2: Male, Type 2 Yellowface Cinnamon or greywing





On the Left-


Bird 3: Still a baby, so I'm not sure about gender (guesses would be great!!!), Dominant Pied light green greeywing or dilute??





Thanks for your help! I can't wait to hear your thoughts....

bird 1 - mauve clearflight pied male

bird 2 - skyblue golden face, not sure what other variety... either cinnamon if the markings are brown and it has a brown quill in the long tail feathers, or full bodied greywing if the markings are grey and the tail quill grey... unless it is a combination of both of course! i am no expert at the dilute varieties!

bird 3 - greygreen dominant pied dilute(?)

lets see what the others think.

Can't really help with the mutations but wanted to tell you that they are beautiful! Such vivid color on Bird 2.

can you confirm the colour of the markings and tail on bird 2, i know the camera can skew brown and grey so it is hard to be sure...

Thank you very much! Does anyone have a guess on the sex of bird 3? Oh, and I am pretty sure that bird 2 is a greywing becuase in person he looks more greyish than brown. What mutation do you think bird 3 is?

if the markings are grey and the tail is grey then i would say full bodied greywing.

bird 3 looks like a male greygreen dominant pied dilute...
