Default Mutation help for a friend

Hi everyone, I told one of my friends how much you have all helped me, so she has asked for your advice
This is Bert, we are sure he is a male, we just have no idea of his mutation! Bert was given to my friend not too long ago. I think he is an older bird.
You can't see his eyes well, but they are black with a white iris.
Thanks a lot everyone, and Happy Easter!

Wow, he is a stunner! With so few markings it is a bit tricky but I think he is a Grey Opaline Spangle Dominant Pied.

I fully agree with Toni regarding Bert's mutation. He does have quite an interesting pattern!
Happy Easter to you too!

I'm moving this thread to the Mutations and Genetics section where it's most appropriate.

Your friend's budgie is absolutely stunning.

Please suggest to your friend that she join the forum herself -- we'd love to have her.

Thanks everyone, she was told he was a French moult survivor by looking at him, do you think that's true?
I told her to join the forum - she's just moved and waiting for her Internet to be connected!
Thanks everyone

Yes, now that you mention it, you can see his primary wing feathers as well as his tail feathers are a bit malformed, which is a telltale sign of French Moult. I'm glad her little guy Bert was able to fight through it and with a good diet, get through the worst symptoms. What a sweetheart
