I agree too. What you call teal I called turquoise, as I had two budgies with that same beautiful shade of blue. Mine were a normal skyblue and a dominant pied skyblue. They were brothers and both parents were dark green split to blue. These boys had a brother who was a dominant pied dark green. He paired up with a dominant pied cobalt and produced a recessive pied skyblue with the same turquoise hue. According to older books I had back then, that shade is the influence of the green parent(s) who are split to blue. Caspir is absolutely lovely. Is he a baby you raised? What do his parents look like?
