The natural color of a budgie in the wild is green and yellow with black on the wings. Any variation to that is caused by genetic mutations that are brought out in the breeding process. Over the years, breeders have cultivated many different colors and patterns. These are the mutations that are discussed in the forum. Some of the different mutations are spangle, pied, etc. Read the information that Dean suggested and that will help you identify the various mutations.

Spangle
Their marking on their wings are 'back to front'. Normal budgies have black feathers with white edges on the wings. But spangles have white feathers with black edges (some times edges will appear grey)

Pies
There are different types of pies.
A pied is a budgies with either white of yellow (depending on the base colour) feathers. Mostly a band across the chest.

The most common pied is the ;

domiant pied
they do have an iris ring and no markings on the flight feathers







Double factor pied
These will have much nore clear areas on the body. They do have an iris ring and no marking on the flight feathers



Recessive pieds
these are more blotchey than the others. They do not have an iris ring and do have markings on their flight feathers



clear flight pieds

only their flight feathers are clear. they do have an iris ring and do not have marking on their flight feathers, just clear feathers






are just a combonation of the two
