I would like to get better at guessing budgie mutations. I have been trying to learn the plethora of all the mutations. In addition to guessing the mutation I would like to guess if the gene is recessive, dominant, or sex linked. Nev would be a great help with the correct answers. Everyone else is welcome to try out their mutation guessing skills as well.Thanks

Side shots are great. They show the wing face and body all in the same photo

This is the best I could do (hubby took these the other day..he's at work and there's no way I could figure out his camera)

This is Forest:


Cloud (L), Sky (R) - dont be fooled by the yellow poop smear on Clouds head..this was taken right after coming in the box we had


River (L), Forest (R)


Better view of Sky (Cloud in the back)

Wow, I know nothing of genetics, but Calypso is gorgeous (so is Voodoo...but Calypso really catches my eye).

First guesses from your photos.

Forest looks like a bright green clear flight pied. looks like he is carrying a recessive pied gene (yellow head spot)
*clearflight-dominant
*recessive pied-recessive


Cloud looks like a clear wing, double factor spangle or double factor dominant peid. Not sure about the iris. I don't know why there is so little sky blue
*clearwing-recessive
*double factor spangle-dominant
*double factor dominant pied-recessive

River looks like a opaline yellow face type 2 full body gray wing
*opaline-sex linked
*yellow face type 2-dominant
*fullbody grey wing-recessive

Calypso looks like a yellow face type 2 recessive pied gray green
*yellow face type 2-dominant
*recessive pied-recessive

Voodoo looks like a normal green

Any thoughts on River (Sky is the yellow type 2), it's the blue one 3rd pic down.

And thanks for the posts...gives me something to look into myself (I love reading into things like this).

Forest – Dominant pied green

Cloud – recessive pied sky blue (could be spangle as well but can’t see any markings)

Sky – Yellow face opaline spangle violet

River – Greywing cobalt (the body colour is quite bright for a greywing so it cold be full body greywing)

Calypso – Type 2 yellow face recessive pied cobalt (yellow on the face is quite bright so could be golden face)

Voodoo – normal light green (2nd picture looks like she could be a T2 yellow face sky blue that has gone green)
