Where did you get her Rick? If you got her from a breeder, is there any way to contact the breeder and find out what her genetics are? That would be the best way to determine what her mutations and splits would be.

If thats not possible, this is what I think:
I think it possible you have an Albino YF M2 masking spangle. It's not unheard of for ino's to have some of their masked traits begin to show through in successive molts. In showing it would be considered a fault, but since that's not a concern in your situation, it's not a big deal.

I'm reasonably sure your bird isn't a DF spangle because of the red eyes, though I suppose the possibility exists that the bird is an YF M2 ino masking DF spangle with the markings coming through... but I think that'd be really stretching it!
