nicky11 will become famous soon enough
Default Blue yellowface

Here's my gorgeous new baby Nicky Jr.
He's very young, maybe 6-7 weeks and my best guess is he's a Blue Yellowface Type 2 and maybe Opaline? Anything else? Is he a "Rainbow budgie"

It doesn't show very well in the picture but he has green on his chest and at the base of his tail. His wings are clipped and his flight feathers were dark. The bars on his head are very pale and he has a yellowish tint all over his head.

I would think he's a golden face opaline cobalt. That yellow is so bright for a bird that young. I have several YF2 babies and they are not that bright at that age.
