Default Is my budgie split for white base?

My yellow recessive pied budgie has blue feathers around his vent, is that a sign he is split for the white base gene? Do all yellow base budgies split for blue have this? Thanks!

Just at a guess, I would say that he is split. Do you have a picture of the feathers?

How old is he? Young chicks that are split for blue often have a light blue tint to their lower belly and vent, but after their first molt it usually goes away.

Most birds that have a blue tint in these areas after a molt are carrying violet https://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebl...ml#violetgreen although it is possible he is split for blue as many green based budgies are
