Question Questions about PINK FEET and Mutations?

From what I have been told, and read on several articles, Cinnamons, the Pieds, Inos, Fallows always have pink feet and most other mutations are supposed to have bluish grey coloured feet.

I have Cinnamon Dilute, Full Bodied Greywing, Normal, Opalines, Greywing and a Dominant Pied in my flock.

Only my male Opaline has a bluish grey feet. All others have Pink Feet!

Cinnamon Dilute and the Dominant Pied are expected to have pink feet so that's all right. But then why do others have that?

So the pink feet is not restricted to a few specific mutations, or does it mean my birds could be split for something else?

All my Girls:

Cinnamon Dilute Yellowface 2 Skyblue, Greywing Cobalt and Opaline Mauve, with their pink feet.




The Boys with their Pink Feet:

FBC Greywing Violet Cobalt, Dominant Pied Violet Skyblue, Normal Yellowface 2 Violet Skyblue.



Sky



Emmett



Winter


Only this guy has them bluish black/grey coloured.

Opaline Skyblue (Milo)

i read that when male budgies are young they normally have pink feet that turn blue/greyish when they are about a year old. the females feet stay pink.

not sure how correct i am on this, but i know i read something like that. lol.

FWIW, my cobalt dominant pied has pied (blue and pink) feet.

Per your request below, I provided several pictures of him in this thread: https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=97143.

All my birds are quite old...lol but I've read that mutations have something to do with pink feet...hmm pretty interesting. Thanks for sharing what you've heard. I'll do some digging about it.
