    blue budgie colour?

    When I got Barry about one and a half months ago he had a white belly with little patches of blue but since then some of his white feathers have fell out and he's more blue now. Is he going to go completely blue and is this normal?
    Also he's about 5 months old

    Hi, and welcome to the community. Could you post some pics of Barry so we could view them? The best way to post pics, in my view, is to get a photo bucket or tiny pic account. (see websites). You can upload your pics of Barry and then on the third icon above from the right, post your pics here.

    It is is entirely possible his feathering could be changing in color. Usually they have what I call a "pre-molt" at about 4-5 months of age. They do lose those white feathers (I call them down feathers), and often times the feathering will be a lighter color, in your case, the blue colored feathers.

    Oh my, Matt! You have one very rare and handsome little budgie there. Barry is very beautiful. I love those feather colors. I've not seen one quite like that in the years I've been around them. There is a website called "Budgie Place" that shows many different mutations. You might want to check that website out. There are lots and lots of beautiful budgies on that website. I think Barry would stand right up there with all of them!

    I would think that is a dominant pied or recessive pied budgie. The pattern on the front is very random with splodges of blue. On the back of his head, I suspect there is a white circular patch within black and white barring. Handsome budgie!
