Default Flecking

Ok everyone. Hubby and I have had our eyes on a particular english budgie boy, and I just loved the spots on his head! I learned that this is called flecking, but why is it so frowned upon for budgies? Does it indicate any problems? I personally thought it was a beautiful mutation. Just wondering if anyone has anything to say about it that may know a lot more than I.

Flecking doesn't indicate any abnormalities in the birds health at all. It is just a pattern that show quality budgies are disqualified for in shows.

Hi Sarah...If this bird is for a pet then no concerns at all.I fit it is for breeding stock to breed show types than no.Breed a fault get a fault ,if not first generation then in the second if you use those chicks.
