This one has me a bit confused as I think she is def a YF2 but her neck, flights and other markings are white.

Any ideas please?

Wow she is really beautiful! I've never seen a budgie that color before :eek:! I'm so jealous :) I looked at the mutations guide (http://***************/v_combinations.html) and she looks kinda like the sky blue/yf2/opaline/clearwing but with grey instead so I'm gonna guess that she's a grey factor yf2 opaline clearwing. :S I'm really bad with mutations right now though, I'm still practicing and learning =P but I hope this helped a little...? =P *prepares to be shut down*

LOL - I'm the same, whenever I think I have it cracked - 1 comes along and stumps me :D

The colors in places resemble a cockatiel. The bottom half loks like a budgie. I am at a loss for what name to give to your bird.

My confusion is: if it is a YF2 surely the yellow should run throughout and she should be yellow with grey and also have clearflights but the other colouring should be yellow and not white. I've also heard the term golden face and surely this should still apply - the other base colour being yellow also.

Sorry if that sounds confusing - but I am :)

LOL - thankfully there were no cockatiels at the breeder I got her from or I could have my doubts :laughing:

Type 1 yellow face opaline dominant pied grey. (Some YF 1s have a small amount of yellow spreading)

Do you think also full body greywing Nev? And why do you say dom pied instead of clearflight? Just curious :)
You're right about the greywing. I must be getting too old and missed it (I'll be 70 in a few months). I think dominant pied because of the small white area on the lower body
