Ok both parents are Green series - so unless they both was split to blue she's Green series as well which would make her Green pied And you'd know if they were split to blue because they'd have both Green and blue babiesShe is more of a light green color she used to have a light blue under her tail but after her first moult it faded. Her mother is all yellow with just a small patch of green on her chest and the father is an olive normal green history with a blue tale.
are those older pics? that is not the mask/cap (Head and face) of a 10 month old BudgieThanks and if I were to breed my yellowface type 1 skyblue grey wing with her in the future what would I come up with. Also she is actually 10 months old because I've had her sinnce February when she was 6 weeks old.
well if your bird is a recessive pied it won't have iris rings and the bars would be different!You have a very pretty budgie .
I disagree about the whole white iris way of aging because Higgins will be three years old this month and she doesn't have light irises. She also still has bars like yours.
I would say the person Inbred not line bred- there is a fine line between the 2 (and i do mean fine lol) But line bred is normally a Grandma to a Grandson, Aunt to A nephew and so on - where it is further down the Relationship line... Inbreeding is Brother- sister- Mom- son- Father- daughter and to me that is way too close together to be breeding them and doing so can cause a lot of problems not all are visual some are internal but I have seen birds (not personally but pictures of the outcome) of babies who the breeder allowed brothers and sisters to breed, or a mom to a son or a dad to a daughter- I've seen birds born missing an eye, missing part of its beak, missing a leg, missing a wing or one wing would be really short and stubby while the other normal - and it could very well be bad breeding that caused yours to die so youngI totally agree with you because, her brother that recently passed away had only few bars on his head just like the one in the picture and they were the same age. Why do you think she's like this then? I know the breeder who gave her to me line bred because my other budgie died at 9 months old for no apparant reason so signs of illness no fumes in the house because, I didn't light any candles work with any bad chemicals like bleach. When I do use them I move my birds to my bedroom with the door closed. So since she bred 2 siblings could it have been because, of genetics?
I've never seen your bird so I don't know what it isI'm still not fluent in Budgie genetics so don't really understand the differences in recessive and dominant pied. I was just saying what I see with my budgies, and that the ways people tell a birds age by appearance doesn't always work because I've had people mis-age Higgins when I know she's almost three.
Please explain to me why this budgie is considered dominant and Higgins recessive. When the only difference to me is she is green and Higgs is white and blue.
