This is my sister's budgie that I am babysitting. I was just wondering what mutation he is?
I agree with both comments!Wow he is GORGEOUS!
Violet Spangle Dominant Pied
I'm not an expert like Kelli or Lindsey, but I don't see brown; I see violet in his wings ... even though he's not opaline. But I suppose he'd need to be either greywing or cinnamon because his violet body color appears to be diluted.I agree with ATV
He is also greywing or cinnamon, its hard for me to tell with so little markings but I lean toward cinnamon as his wing markings look to have a bit of brown. I am sure Nev will be along to say for sure
What looks like brown to me is in the center of his back, and one tail quil on the left However it could just be my computerI agree with both comments!

Haha I am glad I am not the only one!Doh! Yes, I do see a brownish tinge there. Your powers of observation are acute!
Yep its barely noticeableI don't see the brown there but after you mentioned it I went back up and looked in the 1st pic where you just barely see the wing markings they do look brown and a little bit around the eye area I can see brown bars. I saw it the 1st time but thought i was hallucinating
He's dominant pied due to clear band across his belly, but more notably, due to dark blue cere and iris rings. Recessive pieds have purply-pink ceres and black eyes.Thanks everybody for the information and comments. How come he is dominant pied and not recessive? Is is because of the body colour on his upper chest. His beak is very orange, a trait I thought meant recessive?
He'd make a great partner for the YF cinnamon grey recessive pied I posted on here just a couple of days ago. I may see what I can do.............. perhaps he could stay for a long holiday.
