Default Mutation Help

A friend of mine asked me to identify her bird. At first I thought it was a GW or a Fullbody GW, but when paired next to her normal baby it looks almost like a normal with some very slight dilution just to the markings. She is on the left in the top two photos. Parents are in the bottom photos. Dad is the FBG and mom is the albino hen. Wondering if she is just a slightly faded normal? Or a FBG/GW? This is the only photo I have of it right now, waiting on others:

They are all adorable!

I would agree that the little chick isn't a FBG. Also, FBG is a result of co-dominance between the clearwing and the greywing genes, so assuming the mother isn't clearwing or greywing (or FBG) under the albino, all the chicks would have to be split for either greywing or clearwing, and therefore all appear normal.

Because of this, I would say that her lighter markings are due to her being cinnamon. Cinnamon is a sex-linked gene, so the father would have to be split for it, making some of the female chicks cinnamon. Since she is indeed female, that would make sense

So, I would say that she's SF violet cobalt cinnamon.

Please ask your friend to join Talk Budgies herself.

We prefer that questions about budgies be asked directly by the budgie's owners and will be more than happy to welcome your friend to the forum.

Thanks!
