As soon as I saw him I thought of Sterling for his name. Other than kicking all his seeds out of the food dish before I added the dish cover, he is settling in just fine. Eating and drinking & Playing with toys and singing, as he can probably hear my flock a few rooms away. Iíve been looking at for a gray one and he was too cute, so home he came. His markings are a little unusual from my others, so I was curious on what mutation he is. Thanks for responding
Definitely a grey opaline dominant pied. As he moults into adult plumage the dark wings will lighten to more like the usual opaline. You get the occasional opaline that looks almost like a normal as the markings are so heavy, but they moult out to more like expected.
