Default Meet Doc, Named After Doc Holliday

So, I got what I think is the best graduation gift ever!

This is doc, i'm pretty sure its a boy because of his purple/pink nose.
I'm not a budgie expert because this is my first budgie and I was wondering if he's a somewhat rare color? what mutation is he? Thanks for reading!

Hi, Doc is a beautiful bird. But Doc is a girl . That is the cere color of a young female. The name is still okay in my opinion .

Someone mentioned the specific type of pied that Doc looks like here not long ago, and I have forgotten what they said. Dutch pied? She has several different mutations going on there. Others will be able to tell you what they all are. I see opaline though. Congrats on your beautiful graduation gift!

Hi there and to the forums!

What a pretty little girl Doc is! She definitely is showing the female colours on her cere, as RavensGryf said. Young females and those out of breeding conditions have ceres anywhere from light, chalky, blue to pale tan. Young males have slightly shiny pink or purple ceres with uniform colour that turn to the typical adult male blue in most mutations.

Speaking of mutations, to me it appears that your little girl is a sky blue, single factor violet, dominant pied, opaline, greywing budgie. It's hard to see some of her markings, however, and her true colour. Perhaps another member will be able to confirm this

Since you're new to budgies, be sure to check out all the articles and "stickies" (posts "stuck" to the top of each subforum for easy access) to ensure you're up to date on the very best of budgie care! Here's a few links to get you started

https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...e-budgies.html
https://talkbudgies.com/new-budgie-ar...rd-scared.html
https://talkbudgies.com/determining-g...ie-sexing.html

I hope to see you and precious little Doc around the forums! Be sure to ask if you have questions after reading through the forums.

In the meantime, it's great you've joined us!
