Saw a rare? color budgie today. Might pick her up tomorrow lol

So I'm at Petco today picking up pellets for my GCCs & of course I have to look at everything before I even shop for what I actually showed up for.
The first budgie that caught my eye was an all white one. Tiny little baby. So adorable, but then I saw a color, which Idk if it's actually considered rare or not but I had never seen before. I did my research & I'm figuring out she's a yellowface clear budgie.

I'll link to where I found this out Budgie / Parakeet Colors and Mutations Guide

this page explains the yellowface
Yellowface - The Budgie & Parakeet Place Colors and Mutations Guide

and this here explains the clear part of it
Budgie / Parakeet Colors and Mutations Guide


So she's basically yellow/greenish/blue that all blends together, really cool looking with NO black on her at all. No stripes no cheek markings nothing.
She was so beautiful.

If I end up buying her I'll post pics & you'll see what I'm talkin about ^_^

I also have a question: how long is the quarantine period again? 2 months?
Uhg. Hate quarantines but it's gotta be done /:

I haven't had budgies in a long time I'm kinda excited for this possibility. I'm just kinda deciding in my head if I really should get another one. Of course the answer if I ask anyone in my house is a **** no but who really cares what they think right??? haha

Can't wait to see pics! ;-)
Going by those pages, I have a yellowface type 2 English Budgie, and green full body color greywing American.

I am thinking about building an outdoor aviary for budgies, I love all the colors.

I say get her! I am amazed how much I am enjoying my recent budgie addition. Even having a number of bigger "fancier" birds I am so drawn to my little Gryffin.

I can't wait for pics!

Re: Saw a rare? color budgie today. Might pick her up tomorrow lol

I personally would love a conure aviary ^_^ with all different green cheek colors <3
but the budgie mutations are also very pretty. I sort of get bored of seeing the same old green & blue ones but this little bird was something different. I've seen grey factors & white ones before but never one like her.

I'll be going to pick her up in abt half an hour. I'll either be quarantining her at a cousin's house who used to breed budgies or in my basement (it's a finished basement that's usually used by my brother for video gaming or for family get togethers & watching movies & such). I've read all different periods of time for the quarantine but I think 4-6 weeks was the one I saw the most so I'm going with that.

I'm excited but I've gotta go to work right after I get her so I won't have that much time with her today /:


Hopefully she's still at the store.
I'll keep you guys posted !

Doubt she's rare, but she sounds gorgeous!

There are three types of "clear" budgies, apparently... the Ino variety, the double factor spangle and the clear pieds (usually a combination of dominant and recessive pied mutations).


Can't wait to see pics!

Get her! You might not see another budgie like that again. Budgies are little clowns , some people are amazed that such a small, less expensive bird can bring so much joy to a household. Since its at petco you'll problely have to tame it . I gotmy 2 budgies frm petco and they had a extreme fear of hands. If you need any taming or training help just send me a message. Better post pics!
