Hi Jim

Orange beak and pink feet are characteristics of recessive genes.

White patch on top of head, white flight feathers, a band across the body, are characteristics of dominant genes.

So put altogether, you've a combo mutation of dominant pied mixed with recessive pied. And a yellow face by itself.

A yellow face skyblue dominant and recessive pied ****. Another great bird you have.

He is a sky blue: http://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebly.com/dark-factors-blue-budgies.html
Sf yellowface II: http://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebly.com/yellowface-ii-single-factor-budgies.html
Sf dominant pied: http://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebly.com/dominant-pied-single-factor-budgies.html

He is not a combination pied (they have very few markings, which are usually very different than your little guy has), and does not look like he has enough pied markings for a df dominant pied... although nothing is impossible :) After his first molt, the yellow will spread much more over his whole body :) Congrats on your new little cutie!
