    Hi budgerigarists / budgerigar breeders,
    Photoes of my budgerigars I kept in 1990s.

    I had corrected the ID of yellow-faced blue budgies, after studied my budgies and from budgies via my computer.

    Double factor yellow-faced type 2nd blue budgies have almost pure blue body while single factor yellow-faced type 2nd blue budgies had bluish-green breasts & rumps. Double factor violet-cobalt budgie have darker rich purple body.
    Double factor yellow-faced type 1st blue normal budgies cannot be told from skyblue normal budgies, by appearance. Single factor violet-cobalt budgies have paler purple body.

    Hi PandaPaws23,
    Hey Russian, We are on planet "Earth" and our planet is 4 billion year-old.

    If you wants budgerigar (melopsittacus undulatus) you have to come to our planet Earth (joke) [​IMG]

    Spangled opaline is a domesticed mutation of budgerigars.

    Wild budgerigars are green bodied birds.
