Default 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?

Default Albino or Lutino?

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

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.
