Hey guys!

I have been trying to do some homework on my mutations and I want you to test me!

Just post some pictures here and I will see if I can work them out. :p :eek:
Ahhh this is going to be embarrasing. :eek: Hopefully it will help though!

I am not really that confident! I was just about to say don't even try me on outcomes of pairs but I may have a small try... very small :eek:

Here are a few for you to have a go at. They are all my own birds so I can be sure of their mutations

Ewww Wow :XD:
First one: I was thinking Dilute, obviously green but maybe grey green? :eek:
Second one: I am thinking Double Factor pied or clearwing?
Third One: Grey Cinnamon
Fourth One: Yellow Lacewing?
Fifth One: Wow alot. Umm Clearflight, Cinnamon, Opaline and YF?

Wow that was hard :eek: Especially the last one! You see the funny thing is I probably got them all wrong!

What mutation is this?

I have no idea what mutation my bird is, so test your knowledge here! Someone said graywing once but then said clearwing...I'm not sure. The bird has solid black eyes...but I don't know if that's due to age or mutation. I *think* it may be a "dilute", but really I don't know. See pic...and thank you!

All budgies have black eyes (from what I'm aware of at lease XD) but some of them get white iris rings in their eyes whey they are older :) When they are babies there eyes will be solid black :)

Well you got the 4th one right.
I'm just on my way out so I'll post the correct mutations later and some new pictures. In the meantime perhaps you might like to try these again

That is not true :) Some inos have red eyes and DEC's have grey riris rings

I think you may be right about the dilute. It looks like her whole body is diluted so she would be a Dilute Blue or Greywing Bue

Well you got the 4th one right.

The correct mutations are:

[1] Type 2 yellow face opaline grey. Note the opaline wing pattern. He does not show anywhere near enough green to be a grey green (He was grey before the yellow spread after his first moult.)

[2] Dominant pied spangle cobalt. This one is difficult. You can see the dominant pied by the band on his body. The spangle shows by the fairly common patch of body colour showing around the pied patch on the back of his head and the faint spangle marks on his upper wings. His mother was dominant pied and his father spangle. Most birds of this combination of mutations show the spangle more

[3] Cinnamon mauve

[4] Green series lacewing

[5] Type 2 yellow face opaline spangle sky blue. Just look for each mutation separately

Here are some more to test you:

Ok let me try again :D
1- YF Mauve.. Maybe Opaline?
2- DOUBLE FACTOR SPANGLE!!! :D
3- Recessive Pied... Harlequin pied? I have never really heard of this variation but I looked it up and it looks to me like she may be one?
4- Recessive Pied?
5- Clearflight Pied?... Her wing marking are very peculiar..

Ahh this is going very badly. I doubt I would have got even 1 right this time!

1 ok i would say that the first one is a yf2 grey (possibly opaline?)
2 the second has solid black eyes not red so its the clearbody thing (or yeah i think you get that with a double factor spangle like sophie said
3 i would have also said ressesive pied, but the band colour is blue not green, so is it some strong form of yf2?
4 ressesive pied
5 clearflight

3.- yellowface2 reccesive pied cobalt
4.- light green (or so I see in my monitor) reccesive pied
