Congrats Elsabe! They are all such gorgeous babies :) I guess that's what happens when the parents are both beautiful as well!

I vote for more photos :)

Thank you, but have you seen the variety of the mutations. In every batch of chicks they have, there is a surprise, like the first one! And the pale grey one last batch had a white head and this time it is yellow! And the there was no grey and white one before.

Cody and Purdey look like good healthy birds. They should produce good healthy babies. Even with a few more birds for you to feed, they don't cost much extra for extra food and basics.

Thank you
Oh, I sold most of my budgies and wanted to breed only with the English Budgies, but the pair was already breeding and I kept them.
And now I am in love with them all. My sister wants one, so I will let her choose a male, if I can seeee who is who! The other ones, if there is a lady, will also be sold to a friend and then I will decide on what to do with the rest.

Yes, they are healthy! I thought about the day I bought Purdey. Here tailfeaters were so ruffled and some was missing, but I wanted her and now I am so glad that I bought her - she is full of surprises and they are very good parents too!

Lovely babies. I've never seen such a beautiful Greywing. I'm pretty sure the chick on the right is a violet. Your jen is stunning!

Purdey and Codi sure are purdey! :) Sorry couldn't resist the terrible play on words. They are very handsome birds, no wonder the babies look so squeezable. :)

Father: single factor violet-cobalt opaline, note purple colour in front of wing shoulder.
Mother: Double factor yellow-faced type 2nd mauve opaline.
Chicks: Opaline mauve, double factor yellow-faced type 2nd violet-skyblue, double factor yellow-faced type 2nd skyblue opaline greywing, cobalt opaline.
Youngest chick: May be a double factor yellow-faced type 2nd mauve greywing.

Mother had lost the brown colour on cere this means she is tired now and need a holiday (no breeding).

Sorry you can't get a DF YF when only one parent is a YF - even if it is DF. If one parent is a DF YF all the babies will be single factor YF. If you get a baby that's not a YF the the parent isn't a Double factor.
