I'm gonna say Dominant Pied Olive Green Grey Wing. How well are his iris rings developed? For age I'm gonna say 8 months to a year.

Does he have any Iris rings? i cant tell in the pictures

but Just by going by the Bars on his head I'd say at least 6 months old but no older then 8 months old

if he has Iris rings - what color are they?

here's a chart to go by to guess the age with the iris color

[IMG]https://www.****************/i_iris1.jpg[/IMG]
All Black eyes - 0-4 months

[IMG]https://www.****************/i_iris2.jpg[/IMG]
Very Dark Iris 4-6 Months

[IMG]https://www.****************/i_iris3.jpg[/IMG]
Medium Grey Irises 6-8 months

[IMG]https://www.****************/i_iris4.jpg[/IMG]

Light Iris 8 months and Older

EYES - In most varieties, young budgies' eyes will be all black. As they get older, the iris gradually lightens to very light grey/brown. A budgie with a completely black eye is probably under 4 months old. A budgie with a dark grey iris is probably 4-8 months old. A budgie with a light grey or brown iris is probably older than 8 months. EXCEPTIONS:
Lutino/Albino, Lacewing, Fallow - At all ages these red-eyed varieties always have a light colored (pink) iris.
Recessive Pied, Dark-Eyed Clear - These varieties always have dark plum eyes which do not change with age.

Oh yay, I was right on his color . On his age, well not so good. I think I will leave that up to everyone else now since I really can't tell and am basically hopeless with that

Beautiful Baby!
