Default Yellowface II in Australia?

As the title says, is it possible to get yellowface II budgies in Australia? I've read that we don't have the mutation here, but I was wondering if someone can please confirm?

The reason I ask is that our girl is going through her juvenile moult, and has developed a lot of green feathers. I've seen some of her siblings mid-moult, so I expected she'd get a little bit of yellow spreading to her chest, but I'm surprised by how MUCH green she has now. Her face is not bright enough for a goldenface, so I was wondering if she's a YF I with a lot of yellow (being a pet, I guess this is more common than with show budgies), or if Australia does have YF II.

Thanks in advance.

You can get yellow face type 2 budgies in Australia. I currently have one in my flock.

If you look up the breeders in South Australia I am sure they would have yellow faced 11 budgies.. I love the yellow faced budgies as I have one myself he is a yellow faced violet my budgie comes from a show breeder here in Bundaberg.

I agree with Nicole, the variety is present in Australia

If you post a picture of your little cutie we can help you determine her full mutation if you are not sure

Thank you everyone, you've been a big help!

She's hard to get photos of, since she spends most of her time causing mischief and bossing the boys around. She's a yellowface normal mauve, looks to me like a yellowface II.







And a baby photo.
