I ddont know hardly ANYTHING about Yellow mutations.
Im guessing he is a lutino? But he needs red eyes for that?
So maybe a yellowface? Maybe a creamino?

Mutation experts :D

maybe a yf2 dark eyed clear.don't know if such mutation is possible
Oh yay :D Thankyou.

The dark-eyed clear is actually a combination of recessive pied and clearflight pied. When these two mutations are both present, the budgie is has no markings or color. It is either pure yellow (if it is a yellow-based budgie) or pure white (if it is a white-based budgie). The dark-eyed clear's dark eyes never lighten with age, hence the name.

A type 2 yellow face double factor green series spangle , that is if he has an iris ring and black eyes
WOW! Really?
May I ask, How is he a YF2? When theres no green colour?
And how is he green series, if YF2 is a yellow face bleeding
into a blue series bird making it green. Am I missing something? :p
I ill check for an Iris, and the colour of his dark tomorrow :D!
This is very cool, I have no idea on yellows.

it looks like a blue yf2 dark eyed clear, if so he will not develop an iris ring, but should be all white with the yellow from the yf2.

if he develops an iris ring he is probably a yf2 df spangle, but i would expect him to have a darker beak and legs if that was the case... he looks to have the orange beakand pink legs that the recessive pied would give him...

a creamino is a yf albino so would still have red eyes.

I think that most likely he is a type 2 yellow face double factor spangle that is masking recessive pied. The presence of the recessive pied mutation would account for the pink feet & orange beak. If the recessive pied mutation is present he won't develop an iris ring

A picture of the parents would probably give us a better idea of the chick's mutation. If the pied chick is a sibling it is a recessive pied spangle so at least one of the parents must have spangle as part of their mutation. To be double factor spangle both parents would need to be spangle.

The only other possibility is that he is a type 2 yellow face dark eyed clear. If this is his mutation one of his parents would have to be a clearflight pied (or a dark eyed clear) and both parents would need to have a recessive pied gene
