Question Is this a Half-Sider?


Notice the Primary Flights on each wing...and the tail

I know it's Opaline and Light green...but the left wing and the tail indicates a kind of pied, maybe Clearflight?

Or is it just a Clearflight Pied with one of its faulty variations, which gives a black border on the tail?

I don't think it's a half sider. Usually half siders will show a difference in body color. It would show as a strait line down the chest and back of the bird. I would say you have a clear flight or dominant pied that has faulty markings. But it would be nice to see a photo of the front of the bird just to make sure.

Wow his wings are both different. Half siders look like two totally different budgies on either side. For example half can be green or yellow and the other half blue. Look them up on Google. I'm not at my computer otherwise I would post a picture.

As far as I know, half siders can exhibit 2 different mutations on symmetric sides of the body, it doesn't have to be difference in colours, but must show different mutation that don't combine on this bird....for instance a Spangle on one side and Normal on the other, while both sides showing the same colour, as it's likely that the budgies will share the same colour since they're siblings fused before developing into 2 individual budgies.

Whatever it is, it's interesting!
Don't think it is a halfsider, though, but does it matter? You have something that's not "normal" and that makes breeding budgies (birds) so rewarding. One doesn't get tired of it.

It is possible that it is a halfsider but because both sides are green it makes it very difficult to tell.

It would be possible for a budgie to be a halfsider with the same mutation on each side but you wouldn't be able to tell

It is hard to tell if it is green on both sides.

This is a half sider I saw at a bird show a few weeks ago.
