Default Mutation of this fella

Just wondering about the mutation of this guy.

He started moulting a bit ago and just had his new tail feather grow out.. however, the hen he's with can't seem to stop chewing/pulling on his tail and after chewing it up good, she just pulled the brand new tail feather out again. Is this normal behaviour?

I can't answer about the tail pulling but your budgie looks like a recessive pied very cute. This means his cere will stay pinky purple for his whole life and he won't develop white irises.

He's beautiful

He's a cobalt violet recessive pied normal budgie. iHeartPieds is correct that his cere will stay pink his whole life.

Since the female in his cage with him is pulling out his tail feathers, they need to be separated. It's unhealthy and stressful to have this happening to him all the time.

Thank you guys. Thought that'd be his mutation, just wanted to be sure

And thank you Starlingwings. That lady is just so much trouble in this house; she doesn't seem happy on her own, seems mostly interested in biting humans haha, and then I get her a budgie friend and she is just mean to him. Do you reckon it will be better as he matures from adolescent to adult?

Because the female budgie is being aggressive toward the male and/or bullying him, it is important you keep them caged separately.
If you do not, she may severely injure him physically and the emotional stress and toll it is taking on him is not good for his health.

I would recommend you give them only limited out-of-cage time together which is always closely supervised.

Over time, her attitude toward the male may improve but it is also very likely that it will remain as it is now.

Best wishes
