An albino is an all white budgie with red eyes. Albinos lack the black pigment melanin. Their eyes lack the dark layer which protects against light - this allows the red blood to show through making their eyes red in color. This lack of protection for their eyes makes them more sensitive to light. The 'alb' in albino denotes the color white. The albino is the blue series verion of a Lutino. This is a sex-linked trait.
