Default Question About Runt.

Hi everyone!
So, my budgie Runt has moulted a few times now. With each moult, she has gotten more and more purpleish blue feathers on her head. Her head used to be pure white (with the head stripes obviously). What does this change in color mean? Is it part of the Spangle mutation or is it Opaline or something else? I'm a bit confused. Hopefully you can see what I'm talking about in these pictures. Thanks in advance. (:

Yes I think it is a spangle thing, or maybe just a budgie thing Julio has almost the exact same markings, except his grey/blue is harder to see because of his yellow. Runt is so gorgeous!!

This was him at 2 months (what a little cutie!! I love looking at old pictures )



And this is him recently

i noticed this with my Rhea, she was all yellow on her head, with full, dark baby bars..

she is going through her first molt currently and as her new feathers on her head have grown in and the baby bars have now disappeared... i have noticed green colour on her head feathers!
