Default Type of Budgie

Hi, I've been doing some research on the different types of budgies there were and was amazed to see all the different variations. I was curious as to how anyone would describe my Loki as I'm having trouble identifying her.

Here are some photos:







Thanks for any help you can give me

She's a beauty!
I'd say your Loki is a sky blue single factor golden face opaline combination pied budgie. In addition, she may also be spangle.
Given the lack of markings, the surest way of knowing more on her mutation would be through breeding her.

Hi Aluz. I was just wondering if the opaline is why I see the green. The blue infused with the yellow? I just don't see any blue. I'm loving learning about the mutations.

Edited to say: I think I see the blue on the very bottom of her tummy area?

Yes, the blue colour is present on the lower tummy area. The yellow from the golden face gene seems to only have affected the feathers on the neck area, making them light green in colour.

Your Loki has quite an interesting colour pattern, that's for sure!

Loki is beautiful! I agree with Aluz regarding her mutation for sure
