My immedeate thought when I saw it was Frosted Pied (though I seem to be able to find Frosted Pied traits in everything, because I want one so badly ) because they sometimes markings similar to that at the base of their throats, but the wing markings just look Opaline.
My second thought was some sort of feather quality thing? I don't know if it would be good or bad, but other than that I'm stumped. :S
I have no idea what a frosted pied is, but she is certainly a cute wee thing. Now Robyn, step away from the budgie, turn and run straight home, lock the doors and don't go near the pet store for at least 3 weeks :laughing:
Hehe awesome find though! he is really unusual, not sure even the frosted pieds look like him, had a look and I can't find anything similar. You got a great photo to debate over at least very pretty bird!
Wow, he does look like he could be a frosted pied.. I am dying to get my hands on one too! He looks like he has some feather issues too though from stress or poor diet, and that is a lot of frosting to have before a first molt, although he is a male... Do you have any more pics of him by chance?
I would love to hear Jo Anns opinion on this little guy, she breeds frosted pieds
