Default Question: Pink feet...?

In several pictures of other peoples budgies I've noticed that the their feet are kind of gray, or purply/gray.

From what I understand Jazz is a Sky Blue Graywing.. yes?

View of his back...

Okay, so here is the total newbie question.... What is it that makes his feet pink? .....well not pink PINK but flesh pink...

I find it frustrating how the camera makes his soft baby blue seem more 'teal' in colour.

I've no idea but both my dark-eyed clears have fleshy pink feet just like Jazz's, as does my other budgie who has very similar in markings to Jazz only his wings are brown. (Cinnamon?)

I noticed a lot of budgies have blueish grayish feet, which surprised me.

I'm sure his feet colour is ok Finnigan's feet look like that too, nothing to worry about.

I hate trying to catch budgies true colours, really annoying!

his feet are normal for his mutation. The colours of the feet is usually variable
Recessive pieds and dark eyed clears usually have really pink and fleshy feet which you can easily point out from normal feet
Jazz is a beauty!!! i want him

Brandon, I'm not worried about the colour of his feet... just curious as to why some budgies have gray/blueish/purplish feet and some have 'pink' feet.

Bethany, me too, and that's why I asked

Thank you Zeena (nuh-uh, he's mine )

So feet colour are a mutation trait ... I'm still having a hard time wrapping my little brain around all the what makes what and why's for the mutations LOL Learning about koi mutations/genetics was like a walk in the park compared to my learning about budgies!

Oh, sorry! I misread

Ok, like the others said, the colour of the feet most of the time depends on mutation

Sorry for misreading

I think it'd mutation too.. I mean my kara has purpleish feet and kiki has the cutest little pink feet i'm not sure why.... But aren't pink feet just super adorable and just adds to the cuteness of the budgie?

Both my budgies have pink feet; I was really surprised when I saw pictures of budgies with gray scaly feet. I thought maybe it happened when they got older, like maybe only babies would have pink feet, but I guess it must be permanent. I'm glad. I love my budgies' little pink feet.
