This first picture is of the youngest chick, a yellow faced pied. The main tail feathers have not yet emerged, I have no idea why. Its very unusual, but it doesnt seem to impair the chick at all, so no worries.
The next picture is of the eldest chick, a yellow faced greywing? Im curious about this chick as Im not certain that it is a true greywing. Anyone out there more knowledgeable than I about greywings? Dilutes? Im under the impression that greywings have the standard blue/grey legs, and this chick is sporting pink legs and a more orange beak....mysterious chick.
And finally we have the rest of the crew - plus a cousin. Goldie and Freebird had two yellow faced blue and one 'normal' blue (white face).
Its a very short childhood for the budgie, its amazing to me how fast they grow from just out of thier tiny egg - to a full grown and fully independent bird, in just a matter of weeks.
If you would like to see earlier chick pics, click "Sunday, Budgie Sunday" under Labels in the right hand margin. Next week on Budgie Sunday we will meet another adult bird in my flock. Have a great week!
