Hey Lindsey! The DF spangle can have that
suffusion just like INOs can? I've been looking
at a relative of my Midas, a little girl the breeder
swears is a DF spangle YFII, but the white bird
has that gold wash over portions of her wings
and other places, but a bright blue belly as well.
I've been confused, thought the breeder might
be confused, but ...well, now I have a new confusion
that might clear up the others. The white DF spangle
can have blue breakout spots on them?

Yep they sure can, and they often have it much more than an ino or DEC :)

Originally DF spangles all had a large amount of blue or green suffusion all over where the normal body color would be, with white or yellow for the rest of the markings :) This was seen as a fault though and was selectively bred out of the mutation, which I personally think was a shame because they can be so pretty with a large amount of suffusion. So because of this Df spangles naturally tend to have more suffusion than other clear mutations most of the time :)

Wow. Thank you so much for sharing that information
with me. I had no idea this was possible. This chick is
clearly just what you've described, and she's beautiful
while still at the partially fledged stage, even if she's not
following the show standards.

She's also being hand fed and is so cuddly! I can't get her
out of my mind. I think she may be my Christmas present
to me :)
