Blue is the most favorite. I am not surprised about that, but I am surprised that pied is one of the top favorite color.

Budgies are Awesome: What's your favorite color for a budgie?

I like dark blue/purple, lutino, bright green, and clear wing types.

I definitely prefer lutino over albino, and not a fan of pied with random markings and coloring.

I kind of like the grey budgie in the photo.

Our budgies are both blue. Spiro (male) is medium blue and has a yellow head. Our female, Wyette, is ice blue all over.

in terms of body color, cobalt and violet are my tops
in terms of patterns/verieties...oooo...that's tough....
I like grey and clearwings, spangle, any of the peids and mottleds, and yellowfaces

I currently have a skyblue spangle greywing female budgie who im looking for a new mate for...I love my budgies.
just lost her green peid mate but he was an older boy

I think I'm drawn to the blues. My daughter just bought a baby green/yellow, a sweet little bird. In the same batch there was a blue I guess pied?? that was mostly white with blue highlights. So, so pretty! I wanted to buy it but my situation just wouldn't be good for a bird at the moment.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as clearwing violet/cobalt. The genes that take away the black color on the wings also take away the dark color on the blue as well.

not entirely ture Quaker
Clearwing Budgies - Cute Little Birdies Aviary
secnd row down, violet clearwing...
used to have one...
harder to find a good one with nice color depth because the gene is a partial dilution so generally will wash out a violet or cobalt... but it is possible you generally have to work with clear wing and dark factor together to maintain the depth while diluting the wing.

The reason we like violet is because the color is bright and not sky blue. Violet with clear wing make the violet non-bright.
