Blossom (named him when i first got him thinking pink was female) now im alot more brushed up on my skills :p
But i know he is indeed a he and isn't a young budgie.. i was first told he was a ressecive pied.. which i though was true



But after a close up pic i was told he was a double factor dominant pied.. as he has iris rings.. i learnt mutations and think he is a double factor dom..
se his iris rings



But he has both features :p Iris rings so he must be a double factor dom pied
But he also has a translusant pink cere and that shows a male ressecive pied? :S


I thought dom pieds have the normal blue cere..
lol, just wondering why he has a pink cere at the age of around 4ish? so it should be blue now if he is dom pied? shurely :XD:

Your bird is definately dominant pied

It is quite common for an adult double factor dominant pied male to have a pink cere but most will have a blue cere

Have you bred from him? Breeding results would prove his mutation because a double factor dominant pied mated to a normal would produce 100% single factor dominant pied chicks

Combinations of pied types are also very common and are often difficult to identify

Okay, I thought it was the recessive pieds that have that. If that is so my Baby Boy could be a double factor dominant pied instead of recessive? He has a pink blue cere, but so far no iris ring that I can see. Though he is around 1 now.

he sound like a ressecive pied as at around one his iris ring should be visable maybe starting to come through but you should be able to see it :)
an nev said that dom pieds do sometimes have that cere.. i thought it was just ressecive pieds to :p

If you mean the bird in your signature he looks like a recessive pied
