Default Mutation and Gender

Hey Guys, When I first bought Woody, I was told he was male and a Double Factor Dominant Pied Sky Blue. Well, he has been here about 3 months now and I still can't really see any Iris rings, and his cere is still very Purplish pink. I'm beginning to think he is a recessive pied. What do you guys think? When I got him, he didn't have any noticeable baby bars so I'm not too sure of his age, but less then a year still I would think or at least right at it.

Ok i had to go do some research on a Double Factor Dominant pied
this is what the page said
Quote:
*Doublefactor Dominant Pieds: These birds will be marked much more like a recessive pied. Sometimes their bodies are almost completely one color (the same color that is on their head). Doublefactor dominant pied budgies do have iris rings. If you have a budgie that looks recessive pied but develops iris rings, chances are you have a double factor dominant pied. Like the recessive pied, the males of this mutation sometimes develop a pink cere rather than blue. (A blue cere is still possible in the males of this mutation.)
So with that being said and the lack of bars on his head, I'm saying if he was going to get iris rings he'd have them by now!,

I think he looks like a Recessive pied Male

I know all pieds are different but after looking at different pictures of the Double Factor Dominate pied - I say your bird has too much color to be one, Not to mention the lack of iris rings

all the ones I have looked at only have color on their back side between the feathers no where else. But like i said I know All pieds can be different

He does look like a double factor dominant pied but he could be a combination of two pied types. If a dominant pied that is split to recessive pied is mated to a recessive pied then some of the chicks will be both recessive and dominant pied at the same time. These birds are often mistaken for double factor dominant pieds. When they are bred some of their chicks turn out to be normals instead of all being dominant pieds

Thanks so much ATV and Nev. You guys are always such a great help. So, at least we all agree he is a male. I guess I would just have to breed him to be for sure on his mutation. The little birdies can be so complicated
