    Re: Albino Budgie

    Would that make her a yellowface type 2? I looked at the classifications on www.budgies.org but I can't figure it out tee he :/ Her tail is outlined in yellow though and she has yellow throughout and on her face.

    ok she's a clearwing tee hee i've figured out that much from pictures here www.geocities.com/Heartla...uffin.html

    Her wings are that color but then her body is all the same color and her face is yellow :/

    Albino Budgie

    As some of you might know if you saw their pictures - one of my budgies Snowy is all white. I guess this would classify him as an albino but he does not have red eyes. Would he still be an albino then?

    Kaylea has a yellow mask and light green body. Her wings have know dark markings at all though and are all green with only a lighter yellow outlining the markings on her wings and her tail feathers are all green also but it's a very light green almost yellow. lol Anyone know what that would make her classification wise?

    Sure thing. lol Should have thought of that.

    Here is Kaylea's back so you can get a good look at her wings as she RUNS from the camera lol

    Here is Kaylea and Snowy sitting side by side at the bottom of the cage after fleeing mom and the camera.

    Hope that helps! I still can't figure out what they are coloring wise. :/

    I'm not sure about the proper names for them, but a true albino has red eyes.
    I originally was going to get a bird like snowy, but the shop didnt have very good conditions
    Your birds are very pretty
    Here's a link that helped me

    Re: Albino Budgie

    that's what i thought (about the red eye thing) so i don't know what to call him then. The pictures were helpful. Maybe Kaylea is a green series dilute? lol

    thanks for saying my birds are very pretty though Your little budgie is gorgeous too! He has wonderful coloring!

    The petshop near me actually has some really gorgeous colored birds and they keep their birds in really nice condition (suprising for a pet shop). Even though there are a lot of budiges in a little shape they are all in wonderful shape and they have beautiful colorings... there are a couple of albinos and the ones that are all yellow with just little white cheeks. Very pretty Not "rare" persay but still their birds aren't in really bad condition.

    Re: Albino Budgie

    Could he be a greywing?
    I can't find any pics of yellow ones, but he does closley resemble them.
    For some reason, i am also thinking *maybe* cinnamon x with something?

    Re: Albino Budgie

    Would this help?

    pub98.ezboard.com/fthecoc...ID=2.topic


    I don't think she is a clearwing- her wings seem to have the grey/brown tinge to them; they should be primarily white. From what I have read, clearwings are also supposed to have vivid blue cheek 'dots' & a blue tail, which seems doubtful if true, but it also wouldn't fit the pictures.
    Then again, both the natural greens and blues DO have blue tails and dots, so perhaps? :/

    Good luck!

    yeah she kind of matches the description for a cinnamon light green budgie given at the following address: centralpets.com/phpscript...p?Story=24

    Your right about her not being a clearwing though. I'm so bad with these things :/

    LOL I think we may have a winner. Check out the picture of this person's budgie here:

    www.geocities.com/budgie-...picts.html

    Gentically they say their budgie is a light green greywing. It looks an AWFUL lot like Kaylea
