Default What mutation is my new budgie?

The camera does not pick up the exact true color. The wings are more grey than black and the blues are a mixture of soft light aqua, lavender, and blue. The back is more purple than blue but the camera makes it look more blue.

I would say you have a recessive pied sky blue single factor violet if the color is the way you described. For some reason cameras don't pick up on violets.

Looks like a sky blue single factor visual violet recessive pied hen. She's gorgeous! How old is she?

Your hen is a sky blue opaline recessive pied. If the blue is the colour you have described then she is also single factor violet.
The way the wings are marked tells that she is opaline as well as recessive pied. Also she will probably lose most of the bars on her head when she has her first moult. The darkness of the black markings can be quite variable and they may darken when she matures

Thank you all for the comments and information! I'm so happy to know for sure she is a female. When she calms down and I can get her out without fear of her flying off and getting hurt, I will try to get better photos. She truly does have the purplish color. One reason I wanted to bring her home was her coloring.
