Default Is he a Golden Faced?

Just wanted to know if he was a yellow face or golden face. I was thinking he was a golden face, sky blue, recessive pied.

These pics are in natural light





These are't



Thanks for your help everyone

His whole body is yellow so I do not think he can be classified as other one but I can be wrong.

But he's not yellow based he has, blue on his belly rather then green and white patches. I'm pretty positive that he has to be one of those. What else could he be. Thanks though.

I'm going to guess Golden Face as the yellow on his face looks about as bright as a Green budgie... He has a lot of yellow so does almost look like a green rather that a blue bird.

Golden face I'm going with as well, he's definitely a blue series budgie, though.
By the color of his back blue spots, I would say GF II also since they look turquoise.
So he's a sky blue, gf II, recessive pied.
And he's gorgeous.

I agree it really looks golden face. My Goldilocks has the same yellow intensity as your boy.
I don't think golden face II exists. This budgie is single factor golden face, this means the yellow spreads all over the body.
If he was double factor golden face, the rich yellow would only be located on the face area and wouldn't spread all over the body.

Thanks everyone with your help. I'm positive he's golden face now. I can post some better pics after he molts to make sure.
