Hi! I've recently joined this forum, and I was just wondering if my budgie has a rainbow mutation? It doesn't change anything if she doesn't, and she's still quite young, but she's a lovely little girl and it would just be interesting to find out. I think she's a little stunner whatever mutation she is, but it'd just be nice to know.

Her name is Summer, here are some pictures, sorry I couldn't get better lighting.

Hi there and :welcome: to the forums!

She's a beautiful girl :) She's definitely single factor goldenface, cobalt, violet and probably clearwing, but I'm not able to tell for sure from the photos if she's opaline. If she is also opaline, then yes, she is a rainbow budgie. Could you post a shot of the wings to confirm?

As you're new to the forums, be sure to read through the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to ensure you're up to date on all the best practices for budgie care. :p

If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask!

We look forward to seeing you and your little budgie around the forums!

Cheers :wave:

This is what she looks like from the back, sorry about the lighting. It's the best picture I could really get. I'll be sure to check out more of the forum, thank you again!

Yes, she is opaline, but is actually full body greywing, not clearwing. So to answer your question, yes, she's a rainbow budgie :) What a sweetheart!

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
http://talkbudgies.com/how-guides/175818-how-post-full-size-pictures-photo-sharing-site.html

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them! ;)

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
