Your birdie looks like mine!
Yellow = Female - Creamino cinnamon dark factor? (Probably wrong on mutation!)
White = Male - Recessive pied sky blue
Your white bird (Does he have a name?) is a MALE, sky blue recessive pied.
Your yellow bird is a Female, Albino Yellowface II (some people call this mutation a "Creamino"). If she has red eyes, she won't be showing any other mutations like cinnamon or dark factors, since the INO gene is dominant and will mask all other mutations.
^^Thanks so much!
So... how about Birdie #3? (I have 7!)
Okay... Birdie number three and four. My OTHER yellow birdie has the red eyes!
Birdie #3 Sky Blue Dominant Pied, MALE
Birdie #4 Cobalt blue, and because I can't see the back of him but i do see broken head bars, i'm going to say Opaline as well. Do you have a pic of him from the side or back?
Let's get those pics for ya!
Thanks! I was right, he is also Opaline.
My Red-eyed parakeet
... Girl ? *What kind!)
Cinnamon can "leach through" on some ino birds... giving them a "dirty" appearance.
I see cobalt blue opaline clearflight pied on #4 who kind of looks violet to me... so possible violet blue opaline clearflight pied?
Red eyed yellow also looks female. Need additional photos of back.
I love the info on my birdies!
Let me share the whole family
^^ I have since learned "Baby boys wear pink.." I have selected many I thought were girls based on this...
This is "Red Eye" -- I had 4 yellows at one point; pretty sure one died trying to lay an egg. This one does have red, I love. I want to add more to my family...
Heres the blue/violet..Pretty bird?
And here is Mommy Bird (the Creamino. Pretty sure she is gonna lay an egg soon.. Her butt seems to indicate so as well as her behavior) and Daddy Bird (the white one.) Daddy Bird has the white ring around his eye. So does the one below.. I'm not losing any more birds... losing Rainbow hurt... as did Banana...
And. Does this guy's wings look dirty to you ? Or is that his color...
Creamino mom still looks "dirty" to me, so feeling like she is also cinnamon.
Baby doesn't appear "dirty" to me.
I have always thought this as well.. This is why I am wondering why Popcorn didn't lay hers yet! (I think she has eggs in her)
They usually only produce one egg at a time and don't lay more than one every two days. If she's been "big" down there for more than a few days then something else could be going on.
Here is Mr. Parakeet, a.k.a. Daddy Bird. He is the male of the bonded pair with Popcorn.. I seen them do the "beak mating" a LOT, he very well may have MOUNTED her when I wasn't home. ?
Here is some more of my two yellow birds, and he.
What kind of birdie is Mr. Parakeet? He is perhaps the most "normal" parakeet I have. (He also flew out window once. He can't fly very well, I had him recaptured in about 20 minutes by putting the other cage outside. So he is special.) <--- Came from someone with 13 parakeets, of a bonded pair that lays eggs regularly from Central NJ. Not a pet store..... He's friendly too. And LOUD! Healthy..
^ My birdie has white circles around the nostrils.. ?
Had "vent gleet" then dead. If the vent gleet was from.. What, I don't know. This was months ago. I never saw an egg.
White bird has "white circles" around the nostrils. Doesn't that mean... Girl?
^ Nevermind.. White birdie's cere is starting to turn blue. OK! Boy!
A new bird here. Boy or girl?
