Characteristics of budgerigars
Rare budgie bird
The genetic characteristics of the budgerigar are divided into three main characteristics:
- Prevailing traits are the traits that, if present in a budgerigar, dominate any other trait.
- Recessive traits The spouses must be carriers of the trait.
- Sex-linked traits are carried by the male and inherited by the female without the male.
The color of the budgie depends on the color of the genes prevailing in its parents, such as the genes responsible for the yellow/green coloration found in the budgie before the mutations that occurred to it because of its breeders whether they wanted it or not, although despite that and despite attempts to predict the colors, it is difficult to fully predict its color, which is It’s still an egg.
For example, the bird may be carrying a non-dominant or recessive gene for blue/white plumage, “hidden” behind the dominant gene for yellow/green plumage. , the blue color will not appear in the bird itself, but the gene may be passed on to the next generation, where if it mates with another recessive gene, the blue color will appear.
