So, he is not a true rainbow because he has the yellow coloring on his wings? (If I understand the terms correctly) How would his wings need to look to be a true rainbow then, would they have to be all white?No he isn't.
A true Rainbow is a Yellowface/ Goldenface Opaline Clearwing on a blue series bird.
Thank you for a great explanation. Your budgie is really beautiful!He's what *I* call a Rainbow Spangle -- instead of a clearwing, he's a spangle -- with all the other necessary Rainbow components in place (opaline, white-based, yellowface or goldenface). Personally, I prefer the opaline spangle wing pattern over the clearwing one.
Here's a photo of one of my "Rainbow Spangles". The flash overpowered his color (it's more brilliant in natural light):

Thank for telling me this Kelli I thought all budgies listed on google were correct but now I think about it that was a big mistake
If his mate is green not split to blue, then all chicks will be green split to blue.So if my new budgie is really a spangle, then he could have chicks that are blue with spangle wings (depending on what color his girlfriend has)?
