What Mutations have white-silver cheek patches?
I know the following do
Single Factor & Double Factor Spangle
But what other mutations would?
I have a budgie with White -Silvery Cheek patches
that 100% IS NOT none of the Above Mutations - it's 100% impossible
I know this because Her parents are Babies that were bred here, So I know her parents mutations, and the Grandparents mutations on both parents sides
and yes It's Kaylee again LOL I know she's a YF Grey wing Blue series Opaline and either Clear wing or Dominant pied - or both but she has No body color she has some funky yellow-greenish suffusion I catch in the right light every now and then it is more neon in color than most suffusion is
Her dad is Violet Grey Opaline Greywing Clear Flight pied Her Mom is yellow Face Sky blue Dominant Pied Split to Grey wing
Kaylee has no "thumb print" patch on the back of her head that the Pieds usually have- but it may just not be noticeable like everything else on here lol
but she has clear flights, clear tail and What wing markings she does have are pied markings Pink feet/legs, an orange beak (mainly found on recessive pieds) and No throat spots
Kaylee's belly - I can only get this kind of shot when she's on the cage door so sorry about the bars but there is NO color what so ever
in this one you can see her Silvery white Cheek patches - her Wing markings are grey and dots (similar to a recessive pied) you can see the Yellow-green suffusion on her rump
the best Shot i can get so far of the back of her head
I'm wondering if combing mutations (or certain mutations) if it causes the cheek patches not to be the color they should be
because if you put her mutations out in a single form (as if she only carried one of any of them) every one of them has VIOLET cheek patches
going by her Feet color they fit the following mutations
Clear flight pied
I know a pied can have different cheek patches they call it "pied out" meaning it can be violet and white at the same time
but I don't think it would cause it to go completely white - I've never seen any like that I've seen them be white and violet sort of 2 toned or one side(right or left) be one color while the other side is the opposite color but her's is white -silver on both sides
