I know he's some kind of pied, I'm just not sure what exactly. He has a white base with yellow accents. Thanks in advance!

No idea either - I don't even know what my own budgies 'officially' called :eek: (except that he's blue! LOL)

Your bird is gorgeous though - awesome markings!!

Thanks all!

Dries, I appreciate the input. Here's a shot of the front of him, too, for good measure.

It's hard to tell if he's mauve or grey because the cheek patches on recessive pieds aren't as visible as other birds. He's a YF 1 recessive pied and we can go with mauve unless you can see the cheek patches and tell if he's grey instead. :) Cute. I love recessive pieds.

:S I thought in your newest picture he looked almost cobalt :S But he is most likely a mauve recessive pied yellow face type 1

Thank you! Mauve sounds right. His bluish grey areas are bluer than my grey budgie, but much greyer than my cobalt budgie. What do I know, though? Either way, I'm satisfied knowing he's a YF1 recessive pied (probably mauve). ;)

Alright, here we go! A couple more pics in natural light just for the heck of it.



Closeup of cheek:



No idea if that helps at all.

I don't have access to photos of the parents...it's alright, though. I'm not planning on breeding him or anything, I just made this thread for fun. Thanks again to everyone who gave their input. :)
