Default What Mutation is this?!

Okay so I bred a clearflight pied budgie with a normal budgie and got a baby with stripes on its rump mainly and faded onto its belly. This budgie has absolutely no cheek patches at all. I find this a little bizarre. At first I thought that it was just really bad feather quality and I searched online and it says it happens when they're stressed or malnourished, but I'm sure she isn't because I provide all my budgies with fresh fruits and veggies every day and vitamins with non-direct sunlight in my aviary. And if she did have stressed and bad quality feathers there would've been gaps and broken feathers, but that's not the case. This one is more like a feather color change. The baby's stripes start green then go yellow and finally blue on the tips. I searched online and couldn't find anything. Could anyone tell me what mutation this is. Thanks.

*sorry if the image quality isn't showing the blue too well, I tried contrasting it a little so it could show better
**The birds makeup sponge is a little dirty there, it was right before we changed it

It does look interesting, I think waiting to see how they develop may be the way to go. It may well disappear when it moults, sometimes chicks do have odd feathering when young.

What a beautiful little chick!

So far, this isn't so much a mutation as it is a phenomenon, although with selective breeding for this trait it may be able to be an official mutation like spangle, opaline, etc.

However, this can happen on occasion, and although I'm not 100% on what causes this pattern, the striping pattern extends to the body in some way for at least the first part of a chick's life. There are cases where they have a single feather on their chest or rump that is fully striped, or a whole section where this is the case, and it either disappears after the first moult or is maintained throughout adulthood.

I will be very interested to see what this little one looks like in a few months!

Default Zulu Unique Feathering Update <3

Here's an update of baby Zulu.<3 Most of her feathers have finally grown in and her stripes including her missing blue cheek patches show a lot better in these photos. Could someone please explain to me why she's missing her cheek patches?

The missing cheek patches are interesting, along with the barring on the body it would be pretty cool but these sorts of things often disappear and sort themselves out in adult plumage. I'd like to see how Zulu looks once the adult feathering is through.

I've merged your two threads regarding Zulu's mutation into one.

It is best to keep all questions/updates regarding one topic in one thread.

Zulu certainly is a pretty little thing!
