Recessive pied? What a cutie!

This little guy is so friendly and what a cutie! He has violet cheek patches and a green belly. Just adorable. Can't stop thinking about his cute little personality. What mutation is it?

A light green, opaline, recessive pied :)

So for a male to express opaline, both of his parents had to pass him the gene? but for females, only one parent needs to pass it? Is this correct?

Yep, violet cheek patches are the norm for recessive pieds although many get a mix of violet and white as they molt :) Help To Identify Recessive Pied Budgies - ************* Cute Little Birdies Aviary

For a male to be a visual opaline he needs a gene from both parents. He can carry it in split or hidden form by getting it from just one parent though :)

Another question, I was told his parents were one green and one yellow. Is it possible that he could still be split for things like blue or INO? Can a bird have multiple splits?

If one or both parents were split for blue he could easily be as well, but breeding would be the only way to know for sure.

There are only a few things they cannot be split for at the same time. Blue, opaline and ino could easily be found in the same male for example :)
