This is my first post on this forum, I have given up on another forum because certain people can't give me a polite answer on the one I'm leaving not everyone but just a specific person on the site who answers a lot of peoples questions...anyway, I was wondering what mutsations my birds are I was told my male is a pied...that's all I was told I would like to know a lot more like what maks him a pied, and how it is different from others, my female I was never told. here are some pictures.

Male is Green Female is Blue

Male had his wings clipped and they are growing back slowly though on one side he has one long flight feather and it is a sloid yellow no other markings on it.





Female





This picture isn't of the best quality but I thought her wings were REALLY pretty was wondering if there was anything special about them.

:budgie:

Also my male has a small patch on the back of his head where there are no bars it's just a patch of solid yellow.

First male green is a normal Lightgreen yf2 (I think, correct me if needed...)
Female blue is a normal Cobalt (I think, the colours differ in each picture)

Well first.. welcome to the forum! :wave:

Since you are positive that they have no dark factors then this is what their mutations are:

Male is a light green normal split for recessive pied (that's why he has that spot on the back of his head)

Female is a skyblue normal

Welcome to the funny farm! :D

Please correct me if I'm wrong but... I don't believe yellowface is used when referring to a normal green.

Oh really? That is cool. I thought a clear spot on the back of the head meant dominant pied, and that somewhere on the belly could just be one tiny clear feather and it'd still be dom pied. Budgie genetics are so complicated, it's fun to learn about.

welcome to TB!! your two budgies are cuties!! your female reminds me of a hen i had years ago called Opal.
i agree with Corina on the colours and mutation.
I also agree with what Angela said above, i don't believe yellowface is used when referring to a normal green.

Awee thankyou!! When I went to get them they both stood out to me, my female, when the person stuck his hnd in the cage to grab a bird all of the other's flew away but she just kept running back and forth on the pirch ducking out of his reach :p so I chose her.

My Male was sitting on the perch away from all of the others and whenever he tried going over a bunch of them pecked at him until he ran away, I also thought his 'bald spot' as I call it although it's just the solid patch of feathers, was really cute!!

aww bless her, I bet she thought she was being really clever and then she got taken for it anyway - but to a good home so all is ok :D

And bless him - that's so nice of you to take him and make sure he has a happy home - I always feel so sorry for the birds that are left out!

Budgies are the best :)
