Talking My first English!

I know I've been MIA as of lately, but I just got my first English Budgie last Saturday at a local bird fair! His name is link.

The guy showed me pictures of the parents, and his mother was grey-blue, so I'm thinking that he's probably grey-green rather than olive. The thing I can figure out is his marking mutation! He's not opaline or spangle, but the markings on his neck are strange. Help!

Looks like an opaline dark green to me

If he was a grey green his cheek patches would be blue/grey, and his main tail feathers black instead of blue https://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebl...rey-green.html

He is also split for blue, or carrying a violet factor if he keeps the blue tint to his vent/leg feathers after his first molt
