I came across something here about pink feet, that they can be indicators of mutation. Is this true? 4 of my budgies have pink feet, and only one isn't normal. Also, my budgies have body colour through the flights, edged with black?

I know the mutations, I was just wondering about the pink feet. They are all normals except for Lexi, she is opaline. I'm not sure they don't have rec pied in their background though, with cockatiels split pieds can have different toe nails and Marigold have one light toe nail.

Normal feet are blue/grey. Most ino and par-ino (eg cinnamon, recessive pied) mutations have pink feet because they generally lack the pigment to create blue/grey skin.

Yeah, it comes from the mothers side I think as she has pink feet while the dad has blue-grey. Only one actually has a green tail.
