Default Yellow face baby

Hi Friends! We just brought home this little guy. His name is Patches. Anyone good with coloring and mutations care to explain the yellow face single and double factor differences? I've looked at cutelittleaviary's info but the single/double yellow I, yellow II and golden face are confusing to me Thank you.

Aww, congrats and Patches is such a pretty little birdie. Hehehe, all the different fancy mutations also confuse me after all this time so you're not alone

I will try to not be confusing in my explanation. To make it simpler, you can have an idea on which type of yellow face (or golden face) by looking at the level of intensity of the yellow colour and whether this yellow colour will spread onto the body feathers (on the tummy and chest area) or not.

The yellow on single factor yellow face type I budgies will be light in colour and will be very subtle and will mostly remain on the face/head area.
The secondary tail feathers can also have a faint yellow colour.
Double factor yellow face type I budgies will have a slightly deeper yellow colour and again this will mostly be visible on the face area.

Single factor yellow face type II budgies will have a richer yellow colour (medium yellow colour in terms of intensity). The yellow colour will gradually spread into the blue body feathers during a moult.
Double factor yellow face type II has the same characteristics as DF type one, the only difference being the richer yellow colour on the face area.

Single factor golden face budgies will have the deepest shade of yellow colour and in this case, the yellow will spread onto the blue body feathers.
For double factor golden face budgies, the rich yellow colour will remain on the face area.

Looking at your Patches, I'd say he is a cobalt violet single factor golden face clearflight pied budgie. He's a cutie!

I agree with Aluz except for one point... double factor yellow face 1 are white faced, they show no yellow at all.

What does single factor mean vs. double factor? is it related to what his parents were? I'm just curious. Thank you for the info. It helps!

If a chick gets a yellow face 2 gene from each parent it will have two copies and be called double factor yf2. I a chick gets a yellow face 2 gene from one parent and a non-yellow face 2 gene from the other it will only have one copy and be referred to as single factor.

It is a term that is used only with dominant genes to describe if one or two copies are present. It doesn't apply to recessive genes as there needs to be two copies for the bird to show the variety visually, so we don't need a term to let us know how many copies are present.

Let me know if that was more confusing than helpful and I can try again!

There's more info here: https://www.budgie-info.com/basic-genetics.html we use the terms single factor and double factor in the same way as homozygous or heterozygous are used in most places.
