I have read up on mutations before & I shall again.
I was just trying to figure out which colours & so on
are dominant. Im wondering if my budgies breed what
colours I would get. I know gracie & artek are in love.

If this couple bred::rolleyes:

Artek with Gracie =
Artek with Abigail =

Zafu with Gracie =
Zafu with Abigail =

So im fairly sure that Zafu & Artek are male and Gracie & Abigail are female.

I also think the mutations of them are::S Correct me if im wrong. :budgie:

Zafu= Yellow face, opaline, blue
Gracie= Recessive pied
Abigail= Yellow face opaline blue
Artek= Opaline dominant pied light green

Artek (Green) Gracie (white)


Abigail


Zafu & abigail


The group






zafu


Grace


Abigail


Artek


Thanks guy. waiting to hear from you :)

Boy, you have a lot of beautiful birds. You're going to have almost unlimited possibilities with your pairings.... If I might make a suggestion, check out the Budgerigar Society, UK, website. They offer a wonderful, current book entitled Budgerigar Matings And Colour Expectations. This is an invaluable tool if you plan to breed different colors. Good luck.

Zafu is spangle not opaline
Abigail is also Dominant pied and spangle

Artek with Gracie =
(if male NOT split for blue)
normal greens
opaline green..females
dom. pied greens
dom. pied green opaline females
all males will be split for opaline
greens will be split for blue

Artek with Abigail =
(if male is NOT split for blue)
normal greens
green opaline females
dom. pied green
dom. pied greed opaline females
all males willl be split for opaline and all will be split for blue
(not sure about YF)
greens will be split for blue

Zafu with Gracie =
Normal blues
yf blues
blue spangle
blue YF spangle
(not sure about the recessive pied)

Zafu with Abigail =
normal blues
blue spangles
YF blues
think females will be split for opaline
dom. pied blue
dom. pied spangle
dom. pied YF spangle

Im still learning so i may get things a bit wrong;)

So Artek.. with most birds he mates with.. they will end up green?
If Gracie & artek have chicks they'll be all green?
How do I get bubs with Gracies white colour?

unless Artek is split for blue you will get all green budgies as green is so dominant!
but im sure he is as most budgie have mixed colour parents:p
If Artek is split for blue and he mates with a blue budgie you will get green and blues:D
and Gracie's mutation is recessive so her mate will have to be split for recessive pied to get that mutation

You haven't got some of the mutations quite right

Zafu = He is a spangle sky blue (can't see the yellow face but will take your word for it

Gracie = Recessive pied greywing sky blue

Abigail = Yellow face opaline dominant pied cobalt

Artek= Opaline dominant pied light green

Artek with Gracie =
If Artek is not split for blue, recessive pied or greywing (or dilute) you'd get:
50% opaline light green females
50% normal light green males
All split for blue, greywing & recessive pied and all males split for opaline
There would only be recessive pieds or greywings if artek was split for these mutations

If Artek is split for blue you'd get:
25% opaline sky blue females
25% opaline light green females
25% normal sky blue males
25% normal light green males

Artek with Abigail =
If Artek is not split for blue
25% opaline light green females
25% opaline dominant pied light females
25% normal light green males
25% dominant pied light green males
All split for blue. All males split for opaline. Half masking yellow face

If Artek is split for blue you'd get:
6.25% opaline sky blue females
6.25% yellow face opaline sky blue females
12.5% opaline light green females (half masking yellow face)
6.25% opaline dominant pied sky blue females
6.25% yellow face opaline dominant pied sky blue females
12.5% opaline dominant pied light green females (half masking yellow face)
6.25% normal sky blue males
6.25% yellow face sky blue males
12.5% normal light green males (half masking yellow face)
12.5% dominant pied sky blue males
12.5% dominant pied light green males

Zafu with Gracie =
50% spangle sky blue
50% normal sky blue
All split for recessive pied & greywing
There would only be recessive pieds or greywings if Zafu was split for these mutations

Zafu with Abigail =
If Zafu is not split for opaline you'd get:
3.125% spangle sky blue
6.25% single factor yellow face spangle sky blue
3.125% double factor yellow face spangle sky blue
3.125% dominant pied sky blue
6.25% single factor yellow face dominant pied sky blue
3.125% double factor yellow face dominant pied sky blue
3.125% dominant pied spangle sky blue
6.25% single factor yellow face dominant pied spangle sky blue
3.125% double factor yellow face dominant pied spangle sky blue
3.125% normal sky blue
6.25% single factor yellow face normal sky blue
3.125% double factor yellow face normal sky blue
3.125% spangle cobalt
6.25% single factor yellow face spangle cobalt
3.125% double factor yellow face spangle cobalt
3.125% dominant pied cobalt
6.25% single factor yellow face dominant pied cobalt
3.125% double factor yellow face dominant pied cobalt
3.125% dominant pied spangle cobalt
6.25% single factor yellow face dominant pied spangle cobalt
3.125% double factor yellow face dominant pied spangle cobalt
3.125% normal cobalt
6.25% single factor yellow face normal cobalt
3.125% double factor yellow face normal cobalt
All the males would be split for opaline
If Zafu happened to be split for opaline half of the chicks, of both sexes, would be opaline as well as their other mutations

Other mutations could appear if the birds have hidden genes we don't know about
