Silly question... Is this baby budgie rare?

It sounds so silly but out of all the budgies Iíve dealt with for years... Iíve never had a whiteish budgie with purple cheeks? The pictures donít really justify it but it literally is bright purple!

Re: Silly question... Is this baby budgie rare?

I don't really know what you mean by "whiteish budgie" (blue? a lot of white?)


Most of budgies have purple cheeks (the most common mutation which never has them is lutino)


This one on the photo if I am not wrong seems to be cobalt spangle, one of my budgies is blue opaline spangle (if not opaline mutation, she would be like this bird on the photo with other hue of blue)

Cream colour with beige? Ok, I don't understand it
My budgie has more blue but as I mentioned above this is because of the opaline mutation. ... I was thinkig about colors and maybe my budgie has more darkblue than purple... oops sorry! They are the same colours to me

Re: Silly question... Is this baby budgie rare?

it is not rare and the color will most likely change when it gets older

Re: Silly question... Is this baby budgie rare?

A red one sure would be rare!

I actually have a budgie almost Identical, and she had two siblings that were a spitting image, in that clutch there were 3/5 That looked like that, so with those odds I don't think it's very rare, I know I'll get the name of the mutation wrong so I won't try, but if the entire budgie was purple, that would be more rare, I've got 6 of my own and most of them have purple cheeks, one of them only has one purple cheek, and the other side is white! Pretty bird regardless of rarity!

This is genetically impossible
Ps. Recently on facebook I saw that somebody bred lutino budgie which has some redish feathers. She bred 'em and is sure the bird isn't dyed or something simillar. Also was trying to wash off this but isn't dirty. I'm writing this 'cause no one knows how it is possible, now she's waiting for molting, maybe this will disapear.
