Scottish Fallow / Plum-eyed Fallow Budgie

The least common of the three fallow budgie mutations, Scottish Fallow was discovered in the 1960s and thought to be an English Fallow until test breeds proved otherwise. They have bright red eyes with a pink iris ring, as well as cinnamon-like markings, an orange beak, and mostly removed body color. The male’s cere color remains pink or faded purple, even at maturity. It’s likely that Scottish Fallow has been around since the 1920s, making it the first fallow mutation, but mistaken for English Fallow in the following decades. The pictured budgie is likely to be combined with Grey Green.
