Default What mutation is he?

I found this boy in a pet shop today and couldn't say no, I'm a sucker for light colored budgies and he was all alone.

I'm just a bit confused over what he is.

He has grey markings except in the middle of his wings has a cinnamon hue, his flight tips seem to be light brown also, towards the outside of his wings the markings look like they turn black. His body is dilute except on his rump and tail which look to be violet cobalt.

Thanks in advance

Wow, he is stunning! I have never seen such interesting mix of colours on a budgie! It's like he is part cobalt blue part grey dilute.

Oh! Wow that's not the answer I expected lol he was the only budgie in a busy mall that usually has a huge bin o budgies. I thought he was so lovely but I'm sure others passed him by thinking he was just a boring grey looking budgie

If no one answers here I'll start a thread and ask but I was just wondering if anyone knew if I'd get TCB chicks if I pair him up with any of these non-TCB hens.

I was thinking of the two closest hens in this picture



The calculator said that all the girls would be TCB and the boys would be split for TCB for the little sky cinnamon hen

I believe the TCB gene is sex linked like opaline and cinnamon etc, but lindsey would know, she has this beautiful mutation. I still can't believe you found him in a store all alone left behind, what a gem they missed out on!!

Yup yup, it is a sex linked mutation which is also dominant to ino If you breed him to a normal hen, you will get TCB hens and males that are split. If you pair him to a ino hen, you will get all male TCBs and all normal hens, if you happen to have an ino hen which it looks like you do in that photo I guess it depends on where you are trying to go with him, and whether you want male or female TCBS.

I personally would stay away from anything that will change the pretty dark TCB markings, such as pied, spangle and dilution mutations. I love them in grey... so gorgeous with the dark against the white
