Default A mutation I'd like to see...

Of all the mutations i've seen, i've never seen a green bellied bird with white face and wings.

I guess it's not possible, my question is how come? And is there any way it could be done (via breeding, not unnatural methods).

Also, any photo shoppers out there that can realistically change the belly to green, on a photo of a normal blue? Just to see what it'd look like haha.

Well, I just did this .. but the blue was the really almost electric colored blue, so it's just a lime green white faced It looks so odd though. I must say.

Someone will come and explain it better for you, but this is what I think...

I don't think it is possible because you will eithier get a white-based budgie (Causing the white face and blue chest), a yellow-based budgie (Which makes them green and have a yellow face) or a yellow-faced budgie.

One way to explain it is all budgies have blue bellies, but they turn green because they are yellow-based, and stay blue when they are white-based. Yellow-based budgies have yellow faces just because they are yellow-based. Yellow-faced budgies are different story though, but I'm not going to get into that. White-based budgies just don't have the yellow, which leaves them with a white face, and blue belly. Do you understand what I'm trying to say?

I'm not really sure, but at least I tried to explain.
