I know this may sound silly, but I wise person once told me that the only silly question is the one left unasked.
I really LOVE the white cheek patches on the budgies, but I can't seem to find much written about them, genetically speaking.
How do you get white cheek patches in the birds?
Is it linked to a certain mutation, like inos?
I'm very curious to know, as Skittles (our newest budge) has them, and it took me forever to find a bird in the area that had nice white patches.
Anywho, let me know what you all know! I'd love to know anything you could possibly tell me on the subject

Yes, I believe it is liked to the ino mutation. I have a lutino and an albino to share, but the albino's patches aren't easily seen with the camera. I'll look for another picture that may show them better. What is the mutation of the bird you got with the white patches?

I believe (though don't take my word on it...I'm still learning), that he is a Yellow Face II, Sky Blue, Not sure about the opaline or spangle I was going to ask that in a seperate thread when I could get some pictures, possibly double factor dominant pied..., clearflight pie...

And I have no idea what his..or her background is. Gender is still...pending. And of course he has the white cheeks. Which made me wonder if he had inos in his background. The said that he could have ino or cinnamon, but they weren't sure.

it is a feature of certain varieties, off the top of my head i think they are the inos, recessive pieds and sometimes spangles....
