Hi everyone, can someone who's good at Budgie mutations please tell me what her mutation is? Im thinking a sky blue clearwing? Idk whats up with her slightly yellow face though. If so, can anyone tell me if her mutation's irises or cere develop, shes a little over a year old and she doesnt have very pronounced irises and her cere has stayed white with a blue tinge (which, im aware is indicitive of a male, but I got her before I could sex her properly and used to calling her a she XD)

The simple answer is she probably falls under the "rainbow" group.
She's got quite a few mutations there.
Some kind of Yellow faced/Golden faced (I really dont know how to identify the different types), I believe she is Spangled and possibly Opaline too. She may be Clearwing but I need to go read up on that. I'll come back here once I do some reading.
I am honestly not sure on gender, can you try to get a close up on cere in natural light? And also a front on picture if you can (they could be the same picture if you want).

This is the closest I can get to her face - Im not too concerned at her sex because I'm not interested in breeding and my budgies get along fine regardless but her mutation info would be super cool to have

I will update with more pictures a bit later since its the budgie's bedtime

I feel she is a she.
Mutation wise my final guess (because I am not an expert, and could be wrong) is she is a Spangle Rainbow. So Yellow face/Golden face Opaline Spangle.
