Hello everyone, I was just wondering what mutations Pete and Elvis are? They are in my siggy, but let me know if you need anymore pictures.

Hi,
We need more pictures especially of their backs and wings to be able to tell you if there are any mutations like Opaline, Spangle etc :)

Elvis looks like a normal light green, and Pete looks like a cinnamon light green...but i'm not very good at mutations yet :eek: What do you think Zeena? Am i anywhere in the ball park?

Elvis is a normal lightgreen male split for recessive pied. His head shows a pied spot.

Pete is a lightgreen clearwing male. His cheek patches with bright violet colours indicate a clearwing and not a greywing (where cheek patches will have a hint of grey). In addition, his body colour is bright and not diluted as in greywing.

2 adorable budgies in a good home. :thumbsup:

I agree with Roland :)
Mally- don't worry I had no idea about Pete so don't feel bad ;) You were close with Elvis though!

Okay, thanks for the help, everyone! I am so awful at mutations. :p

I have always loved how they are so similar.:D

Normal light green male - probably split for recessive pied - the clear patch on his head is an indication it is not absolute proof

Opaline clearwing light green male - the bright cheek patches and bright body colour plus the light wing markings show that he is a clearwing. The way the wings, head & shoulders are marked show that he is opaline
