He is a yellow face type2 opaline skyblue spangle.
You need a spangle gene, an opaline gene, a blue budgie and yellow faces.
1. Spangle gene - One of the parents must has this mutation
2. Opaline gene - both parents must have this mutation
3. Blue budgie - either both parents are blue or one of them is green split for blue
4. Yellow faces - either one of the parents has a yellow face type2 factor or both parents have a yellow face type1 factor.
Yup, this male budgie is stunning looking.
