Mutation- Ummm… do u know if they are talking about a love bird and budgie mix? If so thats called hybrid. If not they might be talking about something changed like the color or something.

A budgie, or budgerigar is the proper name for what Americans call parakeet. It’s the Aboriginal name for them, and it means, “Good to eat.”

As for mutation… that comes from genetics. A “normal” peach-faced lovebird (or any other animal) is mainly green with a reddish-pink face. That is what they look like in the wild. All the other colors, like lutino, blue, creamino, orange, etc., are called mutations, because those colors are caused by recessive genes.

I’m assuming when you say mutations you mean species.

Budgies are parakeets. There are alot of different species of parakeets. English parakeets and Princess of Whales are two that come to mind.

Lovebirds….. Peachfaced, Masked and Fisher.

In both there are tons of different colors.

A budgie, is a type of parakeet. In the US the terms are interchangeable. Here’s a link to Budgies
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budgerigar

A Mutation lovebird is really just about any lovebird. Mutation is the word used to describe a specific color. Like a Lutino mutation, Seagreen mutation, slate mutation… It’s just the color. There are different species of lovebirds (Peachface, Masked, Fischers, Nyasa, Black cheeked, Madagascan, Abyssinian, Red Faced and Black collared), with Peachface, Masked and Fischers being the most commonly kept types. Within the different species there are different color mutations.
