Default I want to be certain...

Would this budgie be classified as a Male, Single Factor Dominant Pied?

I appreciate your help.

Yes, he is a young male dominant pied opaline budgie. It seems his colour is sky blue violet, really beautiful!

Thank you very much. I'm trying to familiarize myself with the different mutations and all the exceptions. I missed the opaline characteristics; I'll have to read up on that.

I was 99.9 percent confident the gender is male, but I'm relieved that you also think so as he is a companion for my other male budgie.

And yes, He is beautiful, at least to my eye. I realize this mutation is very common, but I found his particular markings and color combination exquisite. The pictures don't do him justice.

Thanks, again, I appreciate your help.

You're very welcome, I'm glad you got a buddy for Ziggy!
Your newcomer really does have a beautiful mutation, I wouldn't think it a common one as the most common in my view are the normal greens and normal blues, for example like your Ziggy and in my case my budgies, Mona and Carioca (you can see them on my signature picture).

I agree, a male (possibly sf violet, hard to tell for sure in this lighting as I can only see a slight suffusion around the neck, which non/violets can have) opaline sf dominant pied

I know the genetics can make your head spin for sure sometimes I agree that he is gorgeous, and I know even more so in person with the stark contrast between the white and other colors
