Default Help with mutations please

Hi all!
I would love some help with the mutations of this budgie, I'm new to all this so I'm trying to understand it all. This is Sonny, I'm assuming he is a boy with his pink/purple cere. That's all I know haha. Sorry for not having a clearer photo!

Welcome to the forums!

A picture taken in better (natural) lighting will help to determine if your budgie is blue or green series and will also confirm the type of pied he is if we are able to see the chest/tummy area. https://talkbudgies.com/mutations-gen...tion-help.html

From only this photo, I will assume your budgie is blue series.
He seems to be a sky blue single factor golden face possibly recessive pied budgie.

Hi Emma! Sonny is a cutie

Yes, he's a boy The patchy appearance of his cere is due to his pied genes--he is a combination pied budgie, which means he is has both recessive pied and dominant pied genes. This is why part of his cere is the usual "recessive pied" colour (pink) and his chest doesn't have any green on it, but also accounts for the "dominant pied" irises in his eyes (I believe I do see his iris rings in that first picture you just posted).

He is a dark green combination pied budgie

I think he is a Dark Green double factor Dominant Pied or a combination pied. Does he have an iris ring? In the last photo his cere looks blue in the center with pink on the outer parts, is that right?

He does have an iris ring and yes, that's correct he has a blue and pink cere.
Thanks for the help. I also have this little girl with him and I'm not sure what she is either
