My friend (via facebook), Moheb Nabil has spent many years breeding crested and helicoptor varieties to get this bird (and it's 4 siblings). I am sharing the photo with his permission. He has named it The Crested Pharoah. It can fly normally. In the clutch, there was this bird, an albino, a blue opaline pied, a sf spangle and a df spangle.

Wow that is crazy! :) So just to make sure I have this right as I have never bred any of those mutations he specializes in... the difference with this bird is that rather than a circular pattern like helicopters have, this one has more of a fanned out feather instead? :)

I have little understanding of it, too, but, as far as I know, yes. He selectively bred for directional feathering that looks like this instead of the circular of the helicoptor. And then also the crested head feathers.

The blue opaline pied is beautiful, too. I'll try to find a photo of it and post it.

They look like angel budgies ;)

I am glad there doesn't seem to be any health issues when breeding like this. He must be proud of himself breeding a new type of budgie.

Fancy! :D I'd think they'd bash up all those neat feathers with how budgies tend to play, though. *looks pointedly at August and Zeke constantly shredding feathers on the mini blinds* :rolleyes:

Wowie! That's surely a beauty! Has he considered showing any of them? And he spent years on this right!?:eek:
