Default Lost on this Mutation (Please help)

Hi , I just bought this two budgies at the fair and I can't seem to find out what mutation is the female? The male I think is a Graygreen but the female looks like a Lacewing. but her eyes is black . Could it be a dark eye clear Spangle? She is also a crested (Tuff). Thanks to all

She looks like a texas clearbody with some sort of dilution going on, like greywing mixed in there. Hopefully Lindsey will be able to tell you what she thinks.

Thanks to all! So three for TCB . Great ! I have not seen one like her before .
They are from a different breeder and I wish I know what the male is split for.
The male is two year old and the female is three, so fall they like each other .
I have been feeding them lots of fresh fruits , veggie, seed and clean water everyday. The female looks like she had laid recently ? you can see from the photo .

As others have said, she looks like she's got TCB genes. I would also say a recent clutch of eggs is possible, as you've noted.

One thing that really catches my attention is this, which I've circled in the image below:



That gray/blue area could be nothing, of course--perhaps she's just a bit stressed at the moment, or a bit chilled, but it's also a common marker for a heart defect. I'd definitely have your vet give her heart a listen next time you're in for an appointment with your new babies, just to be sure. It's good to know about these things, as--while heart defects can't be repaired in budgies, per se, it lets you know they won't be the best candidates for parenting (strain on the mother, potentially passes ill-suited genetics to chicks) or extensive out-of-cage time, as the exertion could overdue their reserves.

Good luck with your adorable new babies!

Thanks Laura, I well keep an eye on her for a couple week and see if she improve. If not i'll take her to my vet . She is eating good and breathing normal , that is a good sign. But I most differently keep an close eye on her.
