Smile Mutation (And Sex) Please :)

Okay, I didn't even bother naming this new budgie until I got a confirmation on her/his sex as I've been caught out twice already
So, here s/he is Her/his face is yellow, and her/his body is actually purple - not blue like it looks in the photos, and his/her cheek patches are bright blue. Also, her/his wings look to me like they're dark grey - they're definitely not black.





So, mutation and sex please would be greatly appreciated

You have a yellowface violet spangle. As for the sex, I'm not so sure. We need a clearer picture. I'm leaning towards female.

I'm no expert, but I agree with yellow face spangle violet.

I think his wing markings will darken with the first molt.

Can you post a picture of his cere in natural light? It's hard to judge babies' genders. I'm leaning towards male, though.

Lindsey will know.

I don't have a proper camera, only my phone, but I'll definitely try to upload more this afternoon - hopefully Lindsey or someone can confirm gender!

Here are some pictures in natural light - they show off his/her colouring much better too - s/he really is a pretty colour

I still think he's a boy. His blue coloring seems a little too dark to be a girl.

Lindsey!
