I'm not sure, but I think it's a Sky Blue Dominant Pied, and/or a Clearflight Pied.(could be a Recessive Pied because there are no iris rings, but then again. he is obviously young)..also, he may be a she..though I could tell for sure if you had a picture which you didn't use the flash?
That's my opinion..I really don't know exactly what kind of pied..wait for the experts to come on.
By the way, whatever mutation, he/she is a gorgeous bird.

I think that it is a female combination of dominant pied and recessive pied. To breed a bird like this you would mate a dominant pied to a recessive pied to produce a dominant pied that is split for recessive pied, then mate the split bird to another recessive pied (or another split).

A combination of dominant pied and clearflight pied would look very similar but it would develop iris rings

Thank You. I am starting to question if he is a she but they told me it was a he. When you look at his/her cere it is a bluish/purple color.

My camera is not real good without the flash but I will try to get a better pick of him/her. I fell in love with him as soon as I seen him though.

Thank You. This is my first Budgie so I am still learning lots of things. Can someone tell me what the difference between a dominant and recessive pied is though.

Here are a few close up pics without the flash, I hope you can tell by these. Thanks again

Its a male skyblue (or cobalt blue, he looks cobalt in these pictures) dominant pied from what I can see (no white on the cere)

the difference between dominant and recessive pied is that dominant has iris rings and has bands on the chest. recessive pied has no iris rings and the chest is mottled rather than banded and most of the color is towards the tail rather than higher up on the chest I think anyway... im almost certain but not %100

The close up pictures show that you definately have a male. Here are a couple of links that explain the pied mutations

WOWWEEE. He is very very easy on the eyes.

Must be a charm to keep. All I know is, he is ONE heck of a pretty bird.

Thank You guys so much. I really wanted a boy. I just got him on Friday and we have come such a long way since then. He wouldnt even let me put my hand in his cage when I first brought him home, now he will sit on mine and my 4 year olds shoulder without any problem.

I just wish he would get a little more playful (his toys) and start making some sounds. He only makes any noise if he hears another bird or music.
