With budgies split for recessive pied there are small things that I noticed ( I have 2 ) The male never got clear eye- rings and his cere never turned bright blue like a normal male. It stayed pink/purplish much like a recessive pied male. My female never got clear eye rings either even though she is a year and a half old. Also in young budgies before their first moult you can tell if they are split for blue by blue feathers around the vent. That goes away after their first moult.
