Gandalf's mutation has had me stumped since I got her! I've had many crazy ideas about what she is, hopefully the experts will be able to give me a straight answer finally

She looks like a Greywing but her markings are so pale, I mistake her for the albino girls from a distance all the time.





With the flash on, you can see the light violet coloring around the base of her tail.



The markings on her wings seem to end 2/3 of the way down

She is gorgeous, in some ways she is the dream bird I would like to breed someday!

I think she is a grey violet dilute. I don't think she is pied because her tail feathers look grey and she doesn't have the pied spot on the back of her head, but I am not very good with clearflight pieds. I just think her flight feathers are just very diluted like my Maisey who is a yellow opaline grey green dilute.

Pretty pretty biiiiiiirrrd!

trying to figure out their colors is complicated work, I don't get it. I just call them all pretty. I have not seen a budgie color or pattern that wasn't beautiful. I think a part of their charm is that they come in every kind of color you can imagine. Pretty cool really.

I guess I didn't realise how pale dilutes could be! She's positively opaque, unlike my other dilutes but they also aren't grey so that makes sense

Thank you so much for solving the mystery! I was clearly overthinking things

It is very complicated I agree! But also necessary if you want a particular breeding outcome. Unfortunately my only dilute male is still a baby and she's almost a year old so I won't be getting any dilute babies this year

She is beautiful! Looks like a mauve dilute to me given the cheek patches and body color

Mauve makes more sense because all the other birds I got from that breeder are shades of blue, I don't think he had any greys in his flock.

Thanks Lindsey and Cara!
