Question Mutation Confussed

I got Trevor a friend, he has been so lonely without Elvis. He doesn't eat much or sing anymore unless he can see her. The last time they were together he preened her head and asked her to preen his and she lunged at him! So we thought a male friend would be best. She does fine on her own, singing and chirping happily. We named our new feathered friend Cotton. He currently is in a separate room being quarantined. We just got him Friday so he is scared. I got a few shots of him. I hope you all can help me identify his mutation. I did read the article on mutation colors and know I am more confused, I'm not sue if he would be a recessive pied? Help Please

Thank you,
Rachel

Hi Rachel, I have moved your thread from the Budgie Pictures to the Mutations and Genetics section, where it's most appropriate and where it will be given the proper attention.

Congratulations on your new little budgie! In order to give a better guess at your Cotton's full mutation we need photos taken in better lighting (pics taken in natural sunlight, no flash from camera). Also a front shot showing Cotton's chest and tummy area will also be helpful in order to confirm the type of pied.
While I can only see Cotton's back, my first guess is that he is a sky blue and quite possibly a recessive pied budgie. Better pics will also be helpful to determine whether he is yellow face type II or golden face.

Based from those pics, I'd say your little Cotton is a sky blue yellow face type II recessive pied budgie.

And you're very welcome!

Cotton is the sweetest little boy

I agree with Aluz's mutation assessment!
