Default New baby! Help me guess mutation?

Hey All!
Could someone help me guess what mutation my new baby is? I think it's a he, his cere is very solid pink, and he is a little over 3 weeks hatched. He is the only yellow one in the clutch, has very faint markings on wings, white flight feathers, and we think a green spot on his bum Have a look at the pics and tell me what you think!

I can hardly wait until I can bring him home! Only 4 more weeks...

Looks like a boy to me, too. And without seeing the parents, if guess recessive pied.

Thanks Erin! I have seen both mom and dad and they both show typical green. Who knows what they're hiding in their genetics though lol...all the other babies look just like mom and dad but I had to have the one that was different, as usual. Now I'm kind of obsessed with typing him, although I'm not sure if that's possible. He has white flight feathers and cheek spots, his long tail feathers seem to be coming in white but it will be a week or so before I can tell for sure.

Oooooooh I'm so excited!
I can't wait to see him when he's got all his feathers. I'm sure some very pic-heavy posts will come once I get to bring him home It seems to be the consensus that he's a he, so I'm picking boy names...YAY! Thanks guys <3
