Strange mutation...
 
I cannot quite figure this one out. Would anybody have an idea?

You're very welcome! It always makes me so happy to see people with these rare mutations. It makes me so hopeful that I'll actually find one, one day.

I was wondering what would happend if she was mated with a blue male split to ino? She is married to one. Any ideas? I read that the CB will dominate the ino mutation.

I agree, you have a gorgeous TCB there! :love:

TCB is dominant to INO as you read :) If you breed her to a split ino male, you can expect all normal females, normal males and TCB males :)

I read here and there that the Easlys had "Their cheek patches are a shade of grey/silver regardless of their body colour... ...However, Tom Easley did say that the cheek patches of the original stock were pale violet*".

Somewhere else, Easley again: The body colour is changed from blue or green to white or yellow and the wing barring, flights and shaft feathers become jet black. Throat spots are black and the cheek patch is pale bluish or lavender." This describes perhaps the idealised variety, and only double factor Clearbodies approach this ideal.**

Her cheek patches are violet, her legs are pink and she has black eyes with irises. I thought that she was supposed to have grey/blue legs to be a Texas? Can she be a Texas with pink legs?
I'm even more confused now. Not that I don't believe you, but I don't understand.
I also read that the Easley was more common in Europe and this is a french budgie (that's probably why it causes all this fuss!)

Somewhere else, the cheek patches of the Easley are lavender.

I think budgie breeders should be taught about colour, because between one description an another it is completely different. They should use Pantone colours to make their descriptions.

The qualities you mentioned are the standard for both mutations respectively, but rarely does a bird meet every standard especially if the breeder is not raising them for show with strict breeding :)

If she was an easely she would not have the grizzled grey markings but jet black on her wings, as well as the other common differences. You can see some examples of the differences here:

As you can see a number of mine have pink legs as they did not come from the best lines in terms of breeding to the standards. I am in the process of breeding the best qualities back into my TCB line for this reason with good show stock :)

The two photos at the top of this article you linked show perfect examples of the differences too: https://server1.web-mania.com/users/b...r/article8.htm

Your little one is definitely not an Easely, but rather a Texas clearbody :) Mutations can change over time, so the most up to date reference of the mutation is always best to go by or you will end up very confused.
