I have seen a budgie like this before, they're called half-siders.
This is a very rare genetic mutation caused when the zygote (the developing sperm and egg cells) fuses with another in the advanced stages of specialization before the egg is created. Because the mutation occurs before a budgie even exists in any egg, the mutation is only with the color and usually doesn't affect any other part of the bird (it doesn't have two heads, for instance)
There actually is a post which asks if their budgie is a half-sider. The little girl appears to be half mauve and half violet/cobalt, although it's hard to know for sure. Check it out!

It becomes interesting when the half siders are male/female....I saw some pictures of Cardinals and butterflies.
I don't breed (because I couldn't give away diamonds) so no, I have not seen one hatch.

Ahh I didn't see this I usually don't go into mutations all that often. I was just on youtube today for my budgies and and came across this I thought she was very pretty.

Just to clearify, the budgie does not change colour. Sterling explained the process perfectly, but I would like to add that this only means that one side has the dna for one mutation, while the side has the dna for another. It is probably more budgies that are half-siders than we know of, but it is not visible because both zygotes might have carried the same mutation. Or, as seen in the thread she sent you, with only a slight difference in colour.

Interestingly enough, this happens a lot to humans. A lot of us had a twin, which we fused with at a very early stage. The only difference is that we don't show it through for example hair or skin colour. Plus, as you all know, twins tend to look a like anyway. The ones who fuses at a later stage is the ones who either has an extra limb or two, or the more interesting ones where the fetuses grew together when they where developed fetuses, causing two separate people to share skin or literally have the same systems, but different brains. This topic is so, so interesting.. Cool that it happens in the animal world too! I have not seen a dog, but I have seen a half-sided cat
