I suspect these are both dark factor? Is the grey hen mauve?








Thes have not laid eggs yet but are checking out the nest box.
Is it a no no to breed the white ground birds to the yellow ground bird?

I know it's ok to breed greens to blues :).

The male is definitely a dark green. Blue dark factors are not my forte, but looks mauve to me :S. Far from an expert though.

Your hen has Violet Cheek patches so she is Mauve

The male Looks Dark green

If he's not split to Blue you'll get 100% Green series

50% Dark Green Split to Blue
50% Olive Green Split to blue

Can you get some other pics of the hen's back - It doesn't look normal but doesn't look opaline either but it could just be the way she's standing throwing me off

Your budgies are lovely. You can breed any budgie colors or mutations together because they're all the same species. :) The chicks' outcomes will depend upon which colors and mutations are dominant; e.g., as ATVChick said, green is dominant to blue.

If you're interested in studying genetics, here's a good website: http://www.***************/colorsguide.html

Thanks Like Nev said She is Opaline

Just couldn't make it out from the side for some reason usually I just look at the head and can tell but the way she was posing was making it very hard for me lol
