She looks ok to me, in fact, I find her utterly adorable!. I'm no expert, but could the teeny eye dot be left over from her eye change from black to orange?

Hi. I can't say if the eye or beak is a problem, but I thank you for questioning if she is suitable to breed. Is she fully mature?

Perhaps some breeders can say if they think Albinos are often smaller or more delicate. I realize that Budgies are not Ringnecks, but I have a small flock of Budgies, and the Albino is smaller and more delicate than the others, which are various other mutations.

Please let us know whatever you learn about your bird. We are all interested in learning as well!

Spirosdst,

She looks fine to me. The difference in her beak can be down to the mutation she is. She is still a fairly young bird so maybe her beak color will change gradually to those you have seen. I can't really see anything wrong with her eyes and if she seems to be able to see well I wouldn't worry too much about it. If you're still uncertain have her checked by a specialist avian vet. If you can tell us where you're from maybe some of our members can point you to a reliable vet in your area since I realize avian vets are very hard to find.

As for breeding: How old are your male? He doesn't seem to have a ring, but then again it might just be his mutation hiding a ring. If I were you I'll wait till both birds are about 3 years old before I'll consider breeding. That way they're more mature and they might make better parents.

Wessel
