Hello everybody,
After the second moult my grey budgie looks like a grey split for recessive pied.
But I'm not sure, i'm not expert. Could someone tell me if he can be split for recessive pied?
Thanks:budgie:

What makes you think he is split? :)
Birds that are split for r.pied will sometimes have a clear patch on the back of their heads like this:

Being split for r.pied does not affect the eyes. Normals split for recessive pied will get iris rings and a blue cere :)

Iris rings don't show easily on some birds and they depend on age. How old is he?

Yes that can mean he is split for recessive pied. I have a mauve male that is split for recessive pied and he has no iris rings at all and no spot on the back of his head. I wasnt totally sure that he was split to it until he had recessive pied babies this last time.
His father looks exactly like him and has bright white iris rings and is not split for it.
I dont know if all budgies that are split for it automaticly have no iris rings but it definitely can be an indicator from what I have read =)

hi there,

to tell if he is split it would be best to breed him to a recessive pied hen, they would only produce rec pieds if he is split. and because he is split ino you will get some lovely ino hens from him!

Hi ,
Here are some news pics of my future couple,but i don t know if i choose the mauve or the grey to breed with my violet.they are brothers split for ino and c
learflight,and the grey is maybe split for recessive pied
do you mean split for clearwing? clearflight is a dominant variety so they cannot be split for it.

the hen does look like she has a split rec pied spot on her head too. i would put her with the male with the head spot and see if you get pieds.

sorry with my poor english,you re right they are split for clearwing (not clearflight)and ino.Their mother was a lutino clearwing(because borned in my aviary,and grantmother and grantfather were clearwing),their father is a normal grey with one or two dark factor because darker than his son,i bought him in a shop 4 years ago and so I can't know what is split for!
When they breeded,I thought find some grey green chicks,but they made 3 males:the first is the mauve on the pics,the second is the normal grey(lighter than his father)and the third is cobalt,they are all beautiful and what surprise when I saw these shades of blue but without grey green!!!thath's what I like genetic!!
I don t know when you talk about my male whith the head spot,you talk about the grey?
thanks
