I have a few questions about his mutation now that he's getting his adult plumage.

1) what type of pied is he most likely?
2) what type of yellow face is he likely?
3) could he have a violet factor? His spot is visually pretty purple.

And just to not make another thread I have a few questions about Trix as well:

1) Does the "pied" spot on the back of the head imply anything?
2) The marking look a little light or washed out to me, could there be a diluting factor at play with her? Or will they molt in darker?

To me Greyjoy looks like a colbalt double factor dominant pied, maybe type 2 yellow face but i'm not certain. The pied spot on your other budgie means he is split to recessive pied.

Awesome! What a fun combination of mutations. cobalt/violet, df dom pied, yf II? Something like that.

What would make him a double factor Pied?

Double Factor dominant pied occurs when two Dom. pied genes are present. This makes most of the body pattern dissapear and only a few spots, usually on the back or face, remain.

It's possible he is also combination pied, which means recessive and dominant pied at the same time. If he develops irises in his eyes and his cere begins to turn dark blue within the next couple of weeks, he is DF Dominant, but if he stays the same, he is most likely combo pied

I love his colours, he is so pretty

I think I'll hope he's a combo pied because I love his coloring just the way he is.

I'm always trying to learn more about budgie genetics and the pied varieties are always tripping me up!
