To Be Or Not To Be

okay, Darla who is now Darrell. Thanks to the Budgerigar variety Bible and a chance meeting with an identical hen in a pet shop. It is officially a male. Well anyways I was chatting with the birds and I guess the brain fog lifted and I managed to pay attention to his eyes. He has a clear dark eye and one that has a ring around it. I am now guessing he is not a Danish Recessive pied but something else. I read the thing about the combination pieds and got confused, haha. We have him paired up with our australian yellow faced budgie hen. Those two are in seperable. my main question is, is he a dominant pied split recessive or is he something else. I posted the best picture I have of him. I will try to get better picture of the body.

He could be a double factor dominant pied or possibly a combination recessive & dominant pied or even a combination clearflight pied & dominant pied

 

Need a photo of the whole bird but from what can be seen in that photo he is not just recessive pied nor is he just single factor dominant pied. With some birds the only way to be sure of the mutation is to look at the breeding results

I agree with Neville.
