Default Help Identifying Mutation?

Hello! This is the first time I have ever used a forum before and I'm not super well-versed on parakeet anatomy so please be patient with me as I work this out! c:

I have a budgie that I'm unsure of the mutation. I had assumed he was sort of standard green, but I noticed recently that the longer feathers on his wings were entirely yellow and have no dark pigments (all the pictures I find of standard green parakeets have seen have some dark pigment in those feathers) and now I'm not so sure...

Sta.sh Uploads 1527 - Gloomy-Butt's Sta.sh - This is the file link to a five pictures of him at different angles. Thank you for any help!

I'm not sure of this mutation, have a look through the Budgie Mutation and Colour Guide shown above

Thank you for the link. I attempted searching through this earlier, and considered clearwing or greywing, but the rest of my bird's body markings don't quite match from what pictures I had seen. Budgie genetics look like rocket science to me (I'm notoriously terrible at morphs, my corn snake took me months of searching to identify her mutations) and it's very difficult for me to visually pinpoint because this is not an area I'm well-acquainted with.

I looked up some pictures and that does look very similar! I really appreciate the insight!

He is a lovely colour! He's a bit similar to my new Budgie Mercutio, who is a single fact violet pied. Maybe that's his mutation(except not violet of course!)

He is either a dominant pied (without a body patch)or a clearflight pied (with extra yellow on the wing). It is not possible to be sure just by looking.

Hi Jordan and to the forums!

Your budgie is very handsome I agree with toni; he could be either a SF dominant pied or a clearflight pied. Because of the large pied mark on the back of his head, I'm going with SF dominant pied

He looks like a beautiful olive green SF dominant pied!

Be sure to read through the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

We look forward to seeing you and your little one around the forums!

Cheers!
