I thought I had this whole recessive/dominant pied thing down, but... now I'm pretty confused as to whether Foot-Foot is a dominant pied, a recessive pied, or a split/factor/whatever. I've tried researching and come away even more confused than before, haha.

The signature picture has him from three different angles... if you have a question about something you can't see from those pictures I'd be more than glad to answer. Thank you!

That's what I thought! But every picture example of a dominant pied has a picture of a bird with a solid band across the stomach, and he just kind of has a couple little splotches.

I'd have to say dominant pied, due to wing marks and the mark on the back of his head. Tango is a dominant pied, but he doesn't have a solid band (or maybe I'm not aware of it). His bluish-green marks are splotchy.

I agree that he is a dominant pied because the splotchy areas are where the band would be. A clearflight pied would look much the same but it would either have no clear areas on the body or they would be high on the chest area. All 3 pied mutations have a clear area on the back of their heads but recessives have so many other clear areas it is not noticed

Thank you everyone for the information! And Nev, that makes sense about the clearflight/dominant pied distinction.

Aww, thanks Cricket! I haven't really seen another that looks a whole lot like him.

He's a petstore! We looked around craigslist for a few days for a breeder and in the end just took a trip to the nearest pet store... luckily they had some young ones. He was the most playful and was also the only yellowface! I'd only ever seen green/yellow, blue/white and albino budgies.
