Default Zelda, my second English!

I went to a bird fair this past weekend and got my second English budgie, Zelda! (My first English and her boyfriend is named Link) The breeder told me that she was split for Spangle and a yellowface (not sure which one right now) and that she was grey and cinnamon. Would you please put in your two cents on visual mutation?

Yea she does look like grey cinnamon to me but I'm not sure..... Spangle is a dominant mutation I think... So it can't be split to to any mutation, but then again I'm not too sure.

Wow what a pretty lady she has really nice feather. Congrats! And I agree with Airan, I don't think she can be split to spangle? Not 100% sure tho.

shes a cinnamon grey for sure . I don't think she could be split for either Yellowface or Spangle as both are dominant mutations . Lovely budgie though .

Oh okay, I'm a bit rusty on my mutations. Thanks so much guys! The breeder kept telling me that she was split for green. Now I KNOW that's not possible! I'll look up the spangle and yellowface thing to be sure. I didn't even bother looking it up before asking you guys!

You're right! Spangle and yellowface are both dominant! Well that's depressing, I was really hoping for those! Oh well, now I'll just go and see what the possibilities are for her and Link's babies.

Do you think she might have violet in her as well? -- In fact, I think she's a "violet grey"

Sorry about all the posts, lol, but I was also wondering if you could tell how many dark factors she has? I'm assuming none.

Yeah I've determined she is by now, lol. I'm still debating on dark factors though since she's grey.
