Default What mutation is this?

I found this budgie on Pet Finder and am stumped on the mutation... thoughts?

Notice the dark markings on the tail and around the neck. Also the feet and legs have a very distinct red color.

Some kind of grey pied perhaps? I don't really know, but it's a beautiful bird.

It can be a RP Spangle.

It can't be a recessive pied though, can it? I thought recessive pieds always have clear tails?

I really don't know. But I can't see any iris rings when I look at the photos. I'm no expert and that is just my guess.

Almost looks like a dilute cinnamon grey pied of some sort. I will PM Lindsey and see if she can help. The photos aren't the best.

I agree with Erin, it looks like a grey dilute or greywing and probably opaline, with recessive and maybe dominant pied. I don't think that it is a spangle, a spangle would not have color in the tail. More clear pics would help, but with so few markings it can be hard to tell for sure sometimes without breeding

Recessive pieds like any other pied do not always have clear tails though

RPs don't always have clear tails.
