If you know your mutations you can produce just about any combination you want. Opaline spange grey is quite easy. Mate an opaline cock to a spangle hen; if one is grey and the other is blue or grey you will get some opaline spangle grey female chicks

Goldenface violet spangle.
I have seen a picture of this mutation and it is just gorgeous!

I don't think this lovely bird is a spangle, but I want one anyway....

I breed a lot of opaline spangles and I like them very much, especially the yellow face blue ones, but my favourite mutation is lacewing

I like lacewings, spangles, cinnamons, grey greens/olives and the vibrant light green Apple coloured budgies!

I have never seen a Texas Clearbody in real life but here some pictures!
