Default What is he?

I tried looking at the pics and info on the site but I still don't really understand the mutation thing. So can you all tell me what Muffin is? Also from reading other posts I think I understand they molt around 4 months old and could change the coloring is that right? I have no clue how old Muffin man is.







I thought he was white and blue with a bit of yellow with I got him but he really seems to be losing the white and is now just a really light yellow.
TIA
Dusty

Your Muffin is a Yellowface Mutant 1 Recessive Pied Skyblue.
Yellow spreads into the wings even in cases of Yellowface mutant 1 budgies, not just for the Mutant 2. I have had YF1s that were pretty yellow all over the wings and tail.

He will not show the typical age change through his eyes and cere, but considering the stripes on his head, he might be around 2-4 months old.

Budgies do moult usually around 4 months of age, but it's not a certainty.

I've had 6 budgies in the same clutch who began their first moult at the age of 2 months, and their irises changed colour at mere 6 weeks of age, which does not usually happen before the age of 5 months.

You will not see iris rings in his eyes under normal lighting ever, nor his cere colour will change much.

Regardless, he's beautiful. Congrats

I really need to learn budgie mutations, because whenever somebody asks, all I can say is how cute their budgie is!

When Yellowface I budgies are also pied, pale yellow shows through in the pied areas, which can make some people think that thye really have a Yellowface II.
Muffin is a gorgeous little Yellowface I Sky Blue Recessive Pied.
