While I'm still waiting for Izzy to start to show signs of laying, I have been going, once again, to the Budgie Mutation guide. I'm obviously really excited to see what their chicks are going to look like so I've been looking, for like the 100th time, at all of the different mutations and possible outcomes for their chicks. I keep coming across one in particular that I think Hermes might be, though. I included some screenshots from what a clearflight pied should look like with pictures of Hermes and also the links to the actual website. Please note that these pictures range from baby Herm to today's almost 2 year old Herm. Izzy is in most of the pictures- a consequence of my two birds attached at the hip- er, wing
Oh, and should any of you have guesses what their chicks could look like, Hermes is a fullbody greywing single factor golden face cobalt and Izzy is a cinnamon opaline grey recessive pied. Thank you once again for your time and help.
The links to the website I used and got screenshots from:

Here's Hermes' pied spot on the back of his head...
His flight feathers...
Hermes has some yellow tiny pied patches over his body and he has large white/yellow patches on his "armpits"- underneath his wings-the tips of which are visible in some of the pictures below.
His head cock here was due to the mysterious camera in his cage-you'd think he'd be used to it by now from all the pictures I've taken
His tail feathers keep changing with each molt, but here are a few pictures
Let's just take a quick moment to appreciate what an adorable baby Hermes was
Okay, moment over
I know I included a bunch of pictures, but I know a lot of pictures are necessary to identify mutations...if I somehow forgot some helpful pictures, I do have 2 other threads that I have pics on from when I first tried to identify my budgie's colors. Thanks again!
