Default Another question about Goldenface budgies?

I ask your tolerance of what is probably a very
stupid question, but I'm confused and I would
appreciate any answer to this question from
anyone who knows.

I have been offered a baby budgie, a female blue
recessive pied. The breeder tells me she is a
goldenface, but I only saw a couple of yellow feathers
around her cere. I don't want to imply to this breeder
that I'm questioning her assessment of what she's bred,
so I'm displaying my ignorance and asking for guidance
from those I know and trust here. I am wondering at
what age the goldenface becomes obvious enough to
note by a beginner like myself.

Thanks for any help!

"The Australian goldenface is fast becoming popular all over again. Soon, hopefully, the Rainbow will be a recognised variety again too - remem- ber that the Rainbow is a single factor Australian goldenfaced opaline clear- wing skyblue ( although the proposed standard allows other variants as well).
The mature single factor Australian goldenface has a deep golden face plus a rich blue-green body-colour with very little true blue colour visible on the body at all. The wings are also a rich yellow colour in between the wing markings. Perhaps a little blue is visible around the vent in some cobalts, violets and mauves. The double factor Australian goldenface, however, at maturity has (in good specimens) a golden cap & mask which contrasts with the pure blue body colour and whitish- cream wing colour. This is the true goldenface. The violets have the best body-colour and the skys the worst as a general rule.
However, as they leave the nest things are very different. Babies of the single factor form look stunning at this stage with a rich golden face as well as golden wing colour and a fairly good blue body colour. The double factor Australian goldenfaces are rather insipid in comparison: their
cap & mask is pale lemon-coloured, their wings are whitish but at least the body colour is blue. Being able to pick which babies are double factor for Aussie gold- enface is quite important as, if they are good quality budgies, THESE ARE THE ONES TO KEEP.
To this end, the attached photos of yet- to-leave-the-nest babies may prove helpful. The violet is a double factor Aussie goldenface. Note his whitish wing colour, his white pied body markings and with his insipid cream face colour.
The mauve bird is a single factor Aussie goldenface. Note his yellow wing colour and richer golden face colour. The same two birds are in all photos. Both are Miniature Opaline Banded Pieds." ... hope any of this can help you, i got it given to me yesterday :-)

Thank you for sharing that information.
Perhaps this bird is a DF goldenface. I
will go back and have another look now
that I know a bit better what to look for.

Before the first molt a goldenface chick will usually have much more color to the face and tail when compared to the other yellowface mutations

You can see a few examples of before and after molt photos here:
