Would anyone be able to tell me what my budgie's mutation is? These are all in natural light. The colour you see in the pictures is what her whole body is :) Thanks!

She's a yellowface, yellowface II is my guess. She looks like she might be a double-factor spangle, which IMHO would be really cool. :) She could also be a dark eyed clear, it depends on her eyes which I can't see super clearly. (her eyes look like they have a little whitening around the iris, and they look black rather than dark red, which is why I'm leaning towards spangle)

A completely white/yellow bird can be one of 3 things:
Dark-eyed clear budgie's eyes stay a dark plum color throughout its life
Lutinos (yellow), albinos (white), and creaminos (yellow and white) have red eyes
Double-factor spangles have black irises and iris rings that whiten with maturity

Hiya, oo sounds interesting haha! Yes her eyes are black, so not albino/lutino/creamino.

I really have no idea on mutations so that all sounds a bit foreign right now, but it's better than calling her just pale yellow :D:p
