    I think the black faced budgie is pretty stunning! I am always amazed by the variance in colors of budgies even at our local pet store.

    Re: rare color mutation

    there are over 250 different variations of the budgie ( colour )...! here in australia there are breeders trying to produce a red budgie, closest so far is a pink one, and reports of budgies with orange feathers, so my guess is it will only be a matter of time before we see a red budgie.. as for the black budgie and i mean all black, i have seen a pic of one, but with anything new and different sometimes the breeder would prefer to keep his little secret until he is sure he can reproduce it...! hence the lack of publicity, and only a few select people get to see it..
    firstly i will concentrate on gettin ya'll pics of the white faced green, ( to prove my credability with the doubters ) and then i will go for the all black..
    and the ( purple ) budgie.. proper name is violet has been around since 1930.. the link i put in for pandora ^^^ up there supports this. for under $20 australian $20 aust = $15 USD i can buy one from most bird shops

    Hey Matty

    ROFL! I'm teasing. Seriously, it's exciting the new color mutations exist. It's just a shame in some circumstances exportation from AU is now forbidden. But we can still enjoy through pictures and reading about others' excitement
