Mimic, I think, is SF Goldenface Cobalt DF Violet. He has a clear patch on his head like a little bald spot but he has completely normal markings otherwise. I tried to find information on it and the only thing I turned up is that someone mentioned that it means the bird is split for recessive pied. Does anyone know if that's true?

It's a terrible picture, phone washed out all his colours but you can clearly see the spot on his head

Indeed, it really seems Mimic is split for recessive pied!:)

So - if a blue spangle has a white spot, kinda shaped like a Ying Yang, on the top of his head, does that mean he's split for pied too? Both his parents are blue spangles - his mother is a sky blue spangle and his dad is a darker blue spangle. I don't know their parentage though. They also gave me a DF white spangle

Well that is better than shaving the rest of his feathers of I think.HA HA:D
But that's how my brother in law does it, he says it looks better than bald so it must be true lol

Do you have a picture ? I don't know personally but maybe if you can post a picture someone else will know :)
