Default Mutation no one has seen before. What is it?

Hello all,

So, I went to a local pet store today and saw this budgie. No one can tell me what color mutation it is, but that I should have bought it. Lol. Any ideas???

I may be wrong but this looks color to me

Budgies toes or feet are either blackish or pink not like that see the toes some portion is black and some pink

I also think that those feathers were dyed with a blackish colour.
Regarding the feet, I never had a budgie with black feet, not even my most melanin charged chicks. They either have the pink feet (common in pieds, Inos, etc) or the bluish/light greyish feet common in most other colour mutations.

Possibly the budgie is a white based, blue series (maybe sky blue) recessive pied. The white parts were dyed that greyish/black colour.

This is a store who buys budgies in "bulk". Idk why someone would paint it and then try to sell it for the same price as all the others??

I have never seen anything like it either. I would guess recessive pied but no idea why the dark/black tinge to the feathers. Either way I would have bought it on right there and then and named it ... Smudge

Such an unusual budgie!

I was wondering if you would be willing to send me a Private Message with the name and location of the pet store where you saw him?

I'd like to contact the store to see if they would be willing to give me the name of the breeder they buy from.

I'm extremely curious about the bird and would love to be able to talk directly to the breeder to learn more about the mutuations of the budgies which produced an offspring that looks like this.

I already went back for the parakeet to buy it. When I got there they told me that It's a normal parakeet. It was up in a room where there had been a fire and got soot all over its head and feathers when it escaped.

So did you buy the little budgie anyway?
Do we get to see pictures now that s/he is all cleaned up?

It concerns me they have the budgies in a room where a fire occurred as I'd be worried about possible damage to the birds' repiratory systems from inhaling residual smoke.
