We just brought home a new budgie and were wondering what mutation it was.




The pictures don't show the body color very well in the flash, but it has more of a green/teal look to it than a blue.

WOW! I've never seen a bird like that before. I have no idea what mutation he is but he certainly is a cutie pie.

YF2 Opaline Clearflight Pied. I actually have one just like her. Oh, I think it's female

I attached pics of my Paulie. The first is before his first molt and the second is after.

Rachelle has it right as usuial. Type 2 yellow face opaline clearflight pied cobalt female. It may also have a violet factor.

The main difference between a clearflight pied and a dominant pied is that a dominant pied has a clear area across it's front and a clearflight pied does not

Excellent explanation Nev90, I always get them mixed up.

A very stunning little yf2 opaline cobalt hen clearflight pied. She is very very nice.

It will go to a nice seafoamgreen colour.
