Hmm I'm seeing more of a heavily marked recessive pied... Tetra looks similar to this guy just a different color.

Do you happen to know how to differentiate the recessive and dominant in budgies like this? I want to get into the mutations and cannot really understand those. Also thanks for replying.

I was on the fence about weather it was a dominant or recessive pied. In most recessive pieds I see, the black markings are a bit more hazy and not quite as dark, but on a dominant pied I would expect to see more colour on the front of the bird. So it could be either one, dominant was just my best guess.

This link should help you differentiate the two.

And just to throw a wrench into the entire mutation debate.... it could also be a combination pied, of BOTH recessive and Dominant.

It looks very like a recessive pied, often hens are more heavily marked and can look a bit different.

Dominant pieds do not often have so many small white patches like this. They also usually have the body colour on the chest and the white down lower, rather than the white from the mask down like recessive pieds have.

It has too much body colour and markings to be a combination pied, it really only looks like a recessive pied. As it matures it will keep the dark eyes and not develop an iris ring.
