Decided to do an update on the flock: I forget to mention they have all met
now & are getting along great. Gracie Artek George & Zafu & going through
a molt. It has just turned spring here in Australia. Zafu is having mood swings
& being a grouch as here cere is starting to turn brown. Pez is crazy & Hyper,
Shikoba is lovely & calm. George often sits alone, he's the one I saved from
the horrible petbarn. Here's some photos from Wednesday Oct 8th 09!! :budgie:

Also: Let me know what sort of things you think about mutations
& outcomes. Also if theres hidden mutations to do with their tails?
I read something about the colour of the tail meaning something :)

Ok I'll be first :) I think you have some gorgeous birds!!! Love your spangles!!!
And the tail thing your talking about is used to determine if you have a violet cobalt or a violet skyblue. (See I learned something) So does George have any violets on him? It looks like it to me. If so he'd be a violet cobalt because cobalts have navy blue tails and skyblues have turquoise tails. Sometimes when their violet it's hard to tell the base color cobalt and skyblue apart so you look at their tails.
Make scence?

Also I'd be careful about allowing them on the fan, what if it was on!

Oh wow thanks for the great answer. I have also learnt something aswell
now. That means pez is probably sky blue but looks aqua as his yellow has
run into his blue. Shikoba's tail is purple & yellow I think, so that means
she's a true violet? Possible DF?

And seriously Teash... Do you honestly think would put the fids on the
fan while its on? Gosh! It's off, and I was in the room the whole time.
Also everyone knew they were out so no accidents would happen.
You got a bit stressed there. When they are out a have 2 eyes on them all
the time, constantly helping them onto things & making sure the fans off
the fishtank lid is on & so on. I would NEVER put them in danger! :budgie:


I have no idea on mutations, but what a gorgous flock!


Aww thanks :) They're my babies.


they are absolutely beautiful
what a colorful and diverse flock

vi


They are quite the colourful flock arn't they :) I mentioned that to my
partner yesterday :) They look like a rainbow, & so does my floor
from them molting :p

Wow! Beautiful! I really like the reverse pattern on the wings of Skikoba.


I thought shikoba's pattern was strange to.. She has purple on the shoulder
blades but her wings are spangle yellow & black. I wonder if they have
hidden or unknwn genes at this stage. I know basics, but would love to know
more. :) thanks everyone :D

run into his blue. Maybe? I'm not sure. I can't see his pic now, but if he has a yellowface and it turns part of his body a greeny color, then he's a yellowface type 2. Shikoba's tail is purple & yellow I think, so that means
she's a true violet? Possible DF? Not sure again. Still learning, but I thought someone said true violets are a df cobalt. But again I'm not sure.

And seriously Teash... Do you honestly think would put the fids on the

Adorable flock! :D

I'm a beginner at mutations, but here are my semi-educated guesses:

ARTEK (male) -- green dominant pied
GRACIE (female) -- sky blue recessive pied
PEZ (male) -- sky blue YF2 greywing
ZAFU (female) -- sky blue spangle dominant pied
SHIKOBA (female) -- cobalt or violet YF2 spangle dominant pied
GEORGE (male) -- cobalt or mauve normal split for recessive pied

Dean, what do you think?

Pez is my favourite out of that bunch! OH WAUW! He has a yellow face and the yellow continues into the sky blue body colour. His wings appear brownish to me, and thw skyblue color goes into these aswell. My gues would therefore be:

Opaline yellowface type2 cinnamon skyblue. What a looker!
