Whiteface?
 
A breeder told me today that her budgie's babies colors will be mostly whiteface with a few pieds in the mix. I know what a pied is but what is a "whiteface" budgie? I am a bit confused:confused1: Can anyone post a picture or try to explain it please???

I would imagine that she just means they will be white based budgies, sky, cobalt and mauve blue which have white faces, as opposed to the yellow faces yellow based budgies have when they are green :)

Whiteface often refers to a double factor type 1 yellowface, since they have a white face in looks but they are really a yellow face budgie and this can be seen when bred. I highly doubt that is what she meant though since she did not mention having other yellowfaces ;)

I moved this to the mutations section so it will get more responses :)
