Default Can a budgie molt out into a new color?

I was just wondering if a budgie, in its first molt, can change shades? Or even have different markings or markings in new places, but not in the old?

Hello. I'm not 100% sure about that, although it might be able to.
Our Budgie Mickey first started changing colour to a bit of green when he was 2 years old.
I am sorry for not being much of a help, but I'm sure their are lots of others who could answer your question!

Well, mutations like Yellow Face II will become much more apparent, moving through out with each molt. And as they grow older, the baby bars on their heads disappear (some mutations) and the "bib" spots come through.

Yep, they can. My budgie is all yellow with some green and cinnamon colour mixed in.
After one of her moults two years ago, blue feathers appeared on her tummy! She still has them, I call them her blue tatoos

Yep. I had a golden face cobalt that would "bleed" yellow further down his body each year during each molt. He turned green. Thank goodness all my birds are banded. I did not believe it was the same bird until I looked up his band number in the breeding records. The bird was genetically "blue" but looked green. Yellow + bue = green. I always kept him prd up with a cobalt hen - 100% blue chicks.

I guess that would be like a gray horse. They are genetically the color they are born, but gray over time. hmmm... interesting.
