Default Chizu has me confused??

Hi guys!
I just wanted to confirm my budgie mutation and sex.
Though many people say he is a dominant pied male but i have read that dominant pied have clear iris. However, mine has pit black eyes. I would be really thankful if you leave your opinions. Thanks in advance

Your Chizu is a very gorgeous and cute boy!
By looking at him, he's showing the patterned markings/colours of a double factor dominant pied budgie and he is sky blue in colour. If he is an adult, it's very possible he has recessive pied genes mixed in, making him a combination pied budgie (both dominant and recessive). That would explain the lack of irises on his eyes and the immature purplish colour on his beak that would stay throughout his life.

Thanks guys!
I never knew that it was possible to have both recessive and dominant genes in the phenotype. Shouldn't it be the dominant gene that shows in the phenotype? Or maybe it is an all together different mutation cause when both alleles are present the, the phenotype should also be dominant. (Sorry if you think the questions are stupid, i am really confused and a rookie on the road to learn)
