A feathered baby budgie, is he pied?

Yes, it is the white one baby.
She has very pure colors. Except from a patch of light blue near her tail on her back (as shown in the first picture), she is completely pure white. She doesn't have the black patterns anywhere.
I think she cannot be a double dominant pied, because her father is a normal blue parakeet. And her mother is a greywing, clearflight. (See the last two pictures, there is a patch on the mother's head. Although she is greywing and this patch is hard to be observed.) She has a brother which is blue clearflight, and she has a sister which is green opaline.
The very last photo is taken when the chicks are very young in their nest. The yellow parakeet most under the three babies is their mother (The babies like to step on their mother's back).
Does any one have any idea what the white baby is?

I think the white baby might be a dark eyed clear. The mother could be a clearflight pied split to recessive pied. The father could be split for recessive pied.

does she have red eyes?

I'm confused... I thought a dark eyed clear is 100% clear with no markings of any kind.

My guess is a very lightly marked double factor dominant pied maybe greywing? Gorgeous!!

The white chick is a pied. It is not a dark eyed clear which probably means the parents pied type is dominant pied not clearflight pied Both parents must be split for recessive pied

When two pied types combine (or a pied type & spangle) you will often get get chicks with very few markings.

To get a double factor of any mutation the gene must come from both parents so this chick is not a double factor dominant pied

Hi Nev90

The OP mentioned in 1st post that 1 chick is blue clearflight pied. So the white baby must be Dark Eyed Clear (clearflight gene with 2 recessive pied genes give a DEC)

No. She has black eyes.

Eh. This is really strange. So I cannot determine what she is. She is whole white except only a few blue feather on the back of her body. This makes a beautiful color and I don't know what she is.

thanks. But since her father is a normal blue parakeet, that's not quite possible for her to have double factor dominant pied...
