Red eyed budgie

555 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  StarlingWings
Hi all, I've posted this without pic not sure how to drive this site new to this so hopefully it will go well. This baby I have is now 17 days old I have been hand rearing since 5 days old dad killed the other two. Mum is dark blue dad is pied both dark eyes. No albino in Avery. Baby has red eyes little white feathers with light brown mottled colour, tail is now blue and black cheeks are dark coming through. Obviously this chick is a throw back but I thought albino birds were normally white and the other type yellow. Is this normal to have red eyed going coloured? I don't know how to post picture........
