The clearwing on her feathers? Her primaries (and a little above that) are all white then you can see the greywing. That doesn't make sense because when a budgie has clearwing and greywing the greywing gene goes ahead and covers it up so you don't see any clearwing or what looks like it.
Ugh. That sounds kinda confusing. Look at the pictures, especially the Full-Body Shot photo. You can see where the white is on her wings that I am talking about. Greywings are supposed to cover that up though, right?

Just because part of a wing is "clear" doesn't make it a clear wing

most pieds only have markings part way down their wings

if you haven't already go check out www.**************** and click on Mutations

Both your birds are beautiful.

If they're siblings, you should not breed them.

Oh, no. They aren't brother and sister (eww lol) we made sure that they were from different places. The people we got them from told us that they got them from two different states. So I think they'll be fine. LOL

True or False though: Parent-to-baby breeding is okay. (no genetic problems like in siblings)

depends on who you talk to
I have seen baby birds born to a sister- brother , along with a mom, son, father Daughter - born with no eyes and other visual deformities

Good reputable breeders will line breed but go further down the related line - like a Grandparent to a Grand kid or even a Great Grandparent to a Great Grand kid, Aunt- Nephew, uncle- niece and so on further down the line so its not so closely related
