Default Trying to learn about mutations

Hello lovely peoples!

I'm trying to learn about mutation, as i've been reading the threads i'm kinda fascinated by how certain parents can nearly guarantee what chick will be hatched and how many mutations there is To start me off, i wonder what is my Pippin is and also what type of parents would she have had?

She some white over the face which you can see in the picture, which i love and she has litle grey spots on her front which aren't overly clear in the picture. Will these go when she moults again?

Cutelittlebirdies aviary website has a great picture and characteristic filled section if you're looking to learn more about mutations...

Thank you so much Sarah.

It's all right there, seriously how have I missed that page!? Silly me lol the third picture is pretty much Pippin. I love the fact she is such a mix. I'm loving grey wing and grey and mauve budgies. I'm thinking about getting another all ready.

Pippin is a greywing, opaline, goldenface II sky blue! She is absolutely gorgeous, what a unique mutation! Cutelittlebirdies' site is really the best one on the internet, can't go wrong there. If you're unsure about how to identify or differentiate certain mutations, there's a section on that as well.

Of course, if you have any questions, we'd be quite happy to help!
