The title says it all....

What is your favorite Mutation/Color Combo in these cute little budgies. Provide examples if you can.

Mine is Violet, Spangle, Opalines... I just think they are so Beautiful... Any dark factor, they just almost shine to me.

My sweet Violet on the right...



And one of her babies, Vinny...



I couldn't keep Vinny because he's related to my girls, but he is beautiful.

The cobalt blue colour is my overall favourite in all its different variations.
I really like greywings and love the combination of greywing and opaline.
I hope in the future to produce at least one light green greywing opaline budgie to keep on my flock as well as a cobalt and dark green greywing opaline.

My preference may change over time, but I am still amazed by my Goldilocks' colours and she is by far the most beautiful budgie I have in the flock.
I currently consider her my dream coloured budgie (I love recessive pieds) and I hope in the future that she gives me a RP budgie boy with the same or at least similar colours as her.

Here is little miss Goldilocks


And my Dinda showing her beautiful greywing opaline combination. I want to have the light green variation as well as dark green and cobalt.
Dinda is sky blue in colour.

I love the really dark DF violets and YF/GF for body color, I like the really bold colors like Cobalt GF and really light colors like Dilutes, Mallorn is one of my favorite color combinations as the opaline YF II which makes her pale seafoam green. If I ever bred her (which I won't) I would breed her with a Cobalt Cinnamon YF II cock and hopefully get a Cinnamon Opaline YFII

Spangle opalines are gorgeous, I agree with all that's said! Here's a few examples of budgies that have some of my favorite mutations: (photos courtesy of Google Images)

Look at this stunning blue series fallow!

And this pair is gorgeous!

Found one! A Sky Blue, YF II, Cinnamon dilute

I love rainbows and TCBs, too, and anything similarly complicated.
Oh, and here's a picture of Mallorn, couldn't post one about genetic preference without including her!

There's just so many beautiful mutations, these were the ones I thought of but there are millions more. Sorry this is so long, but just had to share!
