if they turn out to have full body colour, rather than diluted, they could be full bodied greywings. That is a combination of greywing and clearwing, meaning your chick has received a greywing gene from one parent and a clearwing gene from another.
Thank you, that was just the answer I was looking for and I posted this in another forum as well.

That just made perfect sense and I had no idea about full bodied greywings being a combination of those two genes.

I learn something new everyday

I'm just amazed that I had no idea any of my budgies were split for anything at all and out of my whole flock these two just bonded, how lucky for me I love the surprises
