My cutest budgie

Okay, I have to say it, all my birds are cute! But Stanley is by far one of the cutest budgies you ever did see If somebody would like to tell me what mutation he is that would be great. I've had him for a few months. I currently have 10 budgies (2 are babies and will be sold) but yeah, he's by far the cutest hehe!

before anybody goes straight away that he's just a lutino then surely not cause he looks like no lutino that I know of. My lutino female English, Elle, is just bright yellow all over with red eyes and beautiful little white bits on her bib. He's got jet black eyes, his feathers are white with yellow bits in them, or yellow with white bits and he has a blue-ish coloured bib where normal budgies have their spots. You may not see it though!

The first picture shows my grandads awesome DIY skills. He said he could attach the next box fine, so he put it on the wrong side, leaving me with two holes! So now they're both filled up beautifully with slabs of wood










In the picture with him is Sqwibble

What a cute and unique budgie! I have no idea what the mutation would be. If I were you I'd totally want to know though! Do you know what the parents were?

They are both so beautiful. He reminds me of a pastel Easter egg color.

Can't be creamino either as they also have red eyes. Albino, creamino and lutino are 3 kinds of albinism in budgies , ( very generically put for us not genetically endowed people...lol)

I wonder if there is such thing as a yellow faced type 2 dark eyed clear? How old is he and was he yellow in the body as a youngster and got yellower after his 1st molt or was he always yellow?

Daisy,
I have no idea of the mutation, but he is really gorgeous and unique! I wonder about the blue bib... Is this something you've ever seen in Budgies? This is new to me... Is he English? He's just precious, whatever he is. Let us know what you figure out.

I forgot about the black eyes haha. I honestly haven't a clue but thank you! He's a 2011 bird but I'm unsure of his age. He's always been that yellow and I have never seen the blue bib before. Thank you though

Judging by his iris in that pic I would guess his age to be some where around 5-6 months... before 4 months baby budgies eyes are all black and after 7-8 months their iris is light grey... his looks brown so some where in the middle..lol

I thought that too, I've noticed some keep the big brown/black eyes.

Thank you Jess!
