Default Lexi's Mutation

Recently I've gone back to thinking about the mutations of budgies I've ever had. Lexi, which is not a surprise came across more than once because I found him to be a very fascinating color/mutation. I have bred him twice in the past, hoping I'd get a mutation that exemplified him, but that was never the case.

Anyway I was hoping to get further expertise from everyone here as to how I could possible get a mutation like him again. My guess would be to breed his offspring. The problem: Out of the four chicks, two have passed away and two have been rehomed and Lexi has since passed away.

Lexi when I first got him:



Lexi grown up:







His mutation is Goldenface Opaline Dominant Pied from what i was told.

I'd appreciate any response.

I see the YF2 as it blended so beutifully with the blue. I see pied and he has iris rings so it is not recessive. Let us see what Nev says. Guthwolf would know as well. You have peaked my curiosity. What a beautiful boy, I am sorry you lost him.

I do know that you would have to breed pied with pied or pied with someone who carries pied, or both could carry pied. Depending on the mother, the chicks may or may not have the pied gene. I think the YF2 is more random but still has to be shown or carried in at least one parent. I am so far from an expert so take what I say with a grain of salt and wait on the others

I know his mutation already.
Just want to know how I can get a mutation like him.
Never saw another budgie like him ever again at the store, so I think he's pretty unique.

I first bred him with a Normal Skyblue and that produced two females who were YF2 or possible Goldenface, one being and opaline. I then bred him to Skyblue DP and got a Normal Skyblue, split to pied (if that's what the patch behind the head means) and a DDF.

He is a beautiful bird but he doesn't look like any dominant pied I've ever seen and he is obviously not a recessive pied. I think he is an opaline clearflight pied with more that the usual amount of patchiness on his body. Bred to a normal blue hen he would be expected to produce about 12.5% female chicks very similar to himself.

If you have pictures of his chicks they might confirm his mutation

Yellow or golden face opaline clearflight pieds are available but they might not all look as patchy as this one

That's funny you would say that because we actually bred him to a normal skyblue hen.

And this is what we got.



When they got older one of them turned a green while the other stood a blue.






This pic shows his offspring from his first clutch and his offspring from his second cluctch. The skyblue chick in the second clutch carried the dominance for pied, if that's what the patch behind the head means, and so did one of his chicks from the first clutch.

What if you bred the offspring to a pied? Maybe even a yellowface pied. I have a few suitors but you are way too far. lol We shall see what Nev says, Your birds are stunning!
