Default Rainbow Budgie

Is there actually a "Rainbow" budgie, or is it something someone just made up?

WOW! That's stunning! Do they come in different colours or just the one pictured?

A rainbow budgie is a yellowface clearwing opaline in the blue series. Often the yellowface is type 2. I prefer the Goldenface colour though, it's brilliant. It can have any other mutations in it, and often does, but most have these in it.

The bird pictured in the second post is not a true rainbow. It is a yellow face opaline spangle. It is looks very similar to a rainbow but would not be accepted in the rainbow class at a show.

Yeah, I just googled up a picture, too. Those ones are what people always told me were rainbow. I'm not a master of genetics. If that one's not a true rainbow, can someone post one that is? I'd love to see a true rainbow and learn the difference.

Edit: I looked up the definition of a true rainbow budgie on a breeding site, and they said "rainbow" means a YF opaline clearwing.

And they showed this photo, too:


I guess the big difference is that the first one I posted is just a clearflight, not clearwing. He was a fake! My apologies; the internet lied to me. I think the spangle's prettier, though.

Kitty, I'm not sure, but I think that bird may be a greywing, not a clearwing. The body color looks a little soft to me.

This is a rainbow for sure:


And I believe these are too:
