Explanation about the term mutation


What are mutations?
Comment(s): C1: 	Mutations are inherited changes in the  genes. This creates the varied colours  and appearance styles of our cage birds. This is something what we like and what make our hobby interestingly and  popular. 	In addition, also diseases can be caused by changing of genes. This is something what we don’t like. Such genetic  disorders are caused by one or more  abnormalities in the genome. They are  quite rare, but not only in humans (Down  syndrome) also in birds. An example is  the occurrence of a gentical disease in  budgerigars: Featherdusters. Besides  the unusual feathering, featherduster  have only a short lifetime. C2: 	Some years ago I contact an expert for gouldian finches in Germany.  My question was about is it questionable to pairing blue gouldians with blue  gouldians together. His answer was that it is better to breed  a blue with a normal (green) gouldian. He explained me more about his  experience. I must understand every colour mutation also like a “handicap”. It is a changing in the genetic and the bird “loses” something of the natural.
