Question Help with mutation, please!

Hey guys I recently bought a pure white budgie named Olaf from the garden centre, but I'm a little confused about his mutation. I knew he couldn't be albino, because his eyes are clearly black, not red. So my next guess was a dark eyed clear... But I then read that the ceres of male dark eyed clears are purple, when Olaf's is definitely blue! So I'm wondering if he's actually a double factor spangle? If you look closely, you can see he also has a tinge of blue in his feathers. Help with his mutation would be very much appreciated! Thanks

Wow, your Olaf is stunning! My guess would be double factor spangle too, or a dilute sky blue budgie. Hopefully someone with better knowledge will be able to to tell for sure.

...... A double factor spangle is all white or all yellow like this: https://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebl...efactorspangle Some do have a blue "suffusion", but it is only in the places where the blue would naturally be present on the body and it is usually very light

Do you know his parentage? He is a stunner!!!

Added info .... in his pic, he appears to have irises, so if that's what I see, he's not a Dark Eyed Clear (their eyes stay big and black, no irises)

He'd undoubtedly make extraordinarily bewdiful babies with my double spangle little girl (who is in full on breeding condition!)...

Can you imagine the bubs? (I can!! )

Thank you! He was the first white budgie I'd seen in the store for a while, so I couldn't resist. Thanks for the help
