Albino or Lutino?
 
I have posted pics of Angel in the topic Angel Bean, however, i'm wondering if she is albino or lutino or is she just a plain white keet?

I dont know for sure but I believe she is a pied. I am pretty sure neither ino or lutino. One of the experts will let you know for sure. All I can say for sure is shes a very pretty girl :)

Wow that a lot of sures for not knowing :)

3 color mutations result in solid white budgies. If Angel has red eyes, she's an albino. If she has dark eyes and develops/has an iris ring, she's a double factor spangle. If she does not have or develop iris rings, she is a Dark Eyed Clear (DEC).

Does the blue rump color and the bright blue cheek patches rule out any of those?

Lutino are all yellow with red eyes so she definitely isn't one of those :) If she has blue on her rump then she is probably some kind of dominant pied

She looks all whiteI also noticed that she does indeed have red eyes so shes prolly albino. Saw the eyes a bit better thismorning in natrual light in her pictures her eyes look black cause of the way the shadows in the room hits..

Probably an albino then. I thought I saw a blue color in the rump on your first pics.

Often, with flash, you will see some blue tint on white birds or green on yellow birds. I can see it on Pita sometimes.

Albino's have no colour in them so no blue would show anywhere.
Lilly is albino and she has no colour pigments in her at all and she has red eyes which show clearly. looking at your very cute bird i see blue pigment which would rule out albino but thats all i have on the mutation, although it does not rule out Lutino.:)
