I'll take a guess, but could you confirm Dudley's mutations?
I'd like to take a guess at Dudley's mutations, but could you please correct as needed? A few of you have indicated that he's most likely a male, although it's not absolutely certain yet. My guess is that he's a violet skyblue (or cobalt) dominant pied clearwing. The rump is a much more vibrant colour than the chest, which is why I suspect he might be violet skyblue.
I also wonder if he's cinnamon. The bar colouring seems normal on the head and neck, but it becomes a lighter brown shade down the back between the wings. Also, I love the white stripe circling the face/head Does that indicate anything, or is it just a neat pied marking?
To me he looks a cobalt dominant pied with no other mutations. He can't be a clear wing as they dont get the bands across the body as a dominant pied does & yours has a band, about cinnamon i'm not an expert at this mutation but i'm fairly sure your boy doesn't have this, i think it would affect the whole black markings not just the odd bit, aslo can pieds even have cinnamon markings, maybe someone more expierenced with that mutation could answer that for me. Also the markings on his face are typical pied markings.
