Does any body know any methods to find out what a budgie is split for?
I already know one, having a patch on the head of a normal means that its split for recessive pied.

Does any one know any thing else?

I think I read somewhere that some body color in the bars on the back of the neck and on the wings is an indication that a bird is split for opaline. My Pippa has the little white spot on the back of his head, and he has some body color in his white bars. He is split for recessive pied and for opaline.

A breeder from the Houston Budgerigar Society once told me that for example a green budgie can be found as split for blue if it has a blue suffusion. But I don't know of how to tell with other mutations. ;)

Oh I forgot to mention that if it has a clear patch on the back of the head it can be identified as a dominant pied. We are presently debating if recessives have that patch as well.
