I found this budgie on Google Images and was wondering if anyone knows what mutation

This picture is one that I found on Google images. First of all, has anyone seen it before? and second of all, does anyone know which mutation it is? Is it a new one?

Thanks in advance!

Yellowface light green with a really fascinating
hairstyle? I can't imagine why a green bird would
have white on its head. I hope someone with a
greater knowledge of genetics can help explain
this one. I know I'm totally lost with it.

It is a new yellowface mutation called seafoam :) https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.ph...hlight=Seafoam

Wow that's cool. I'll check out the other thread, thanks to both of you. I wonder if this means future mutations that are green based with white heads?

The white with the spots on it's head looks photoshopped to me:S, anyone else? I'm not sure, though, looks cool!:rolleyes:

I read on the thread that Lindsey provided a link to that this is real and called flecking (I think that was it) and it's also found in other mutations but is not considered a good trait to breed for.

It is called flecking. It is quite a common fault in Opaline show birds. It is usually only found in Opaline birds of whatever colour mutation.

Thanks for sharing this, can there be opalines without this? Or other birds with this?

Kate C 02-23-2013 06:38 PM

Yes there can and this is what breeders strive for. I have not seen other birds with the flecking unless they were opaline. Breeders introduce opaline into their birds to improve the throat spots. As opaline is sex linked if the male is split for opaline or visual opaline, opaline will only show up visually in the female offspring. If the female is opaline (they cannot be split for it) and the females born will be normal and the males will either be opaline or split opaline. The same thing happens with Cinnamon which is introduced into the birds to improve the feather. Cinnamon gives longer softer feathers.

I found
 
You can clean up spots on opalines by breeding opaline to opaline.

Blessings,
