    Hi William. Haven't seen you around for a while.

    I am no good when it comes to identifying mutations, but I just wanted to say what a handsome little fellow he is. I love the white cheek patches!

    looks like a light green opaline spangle and maybe pied, does he have a bare spot on the back of his head? and do his flight feathers have any coloration other than a pale yellow/almost white?
    and he is an english budgie.
    is that his hen next to him?

    I also think light green opaline spangle - i hadn't spotted the pied but now you mention it he does appear to have some yellow around his legs. If he does then he's a light green opaline spangle dominant pied. He's very handsome!

    Re: any ideas on type of budgie and its mutation?

    Thank you for all your comment, at least i roughly know what he is now, and yes, he is veryyyyy cute. Rouen that is his hen next to him. As i said before im giving them a chance to breed, but he's so funny, almost every 10 minutes hes making himself look beutifull and all puffing up, lol. He gets so exited by the hen. Hope he will be a succesfull father.
    Any more comments welcomed.

    He will indeed! An inexperienced guess but you should get df spangles, spangles, and opaline and maybe opaline spangle (hens only for the opalines).

    He's quite distinguished!

    He is an English budgie, but mutation? Hm.
    All I can really say is "Ooh La-La."
