peaches is on a distinguished road
Default Not sure...

Hello there! Peaches is my 4 month old budgie. (Fun fact, he can wheek like a guinea pig) Unfortunately I've come across with a dilemma. I have no idea whether he is a double factor spangle or a dark-eyed clear or ino. This is because he's 4 months old and his cere is lo and behold, pink. Unfortunately, I dont know if it's too early to tell?
eyes: Depends on lighting. Natural lighting, the rim around his iris is black, and the centre is a plum red. Sometimes if I inspect carefully there is a dark dark grey ring.
feet: pink
cere: pink
Tail: pale yellow
Cheek patch: white
his breast is light yellow, peach colour with blue tint. he has a blue tinge ring near his neck, like a double factor spangle.

Pic: Not sure...-img_2507.jpg
yeah.. Can someone tell me if it's too early to tell or is it because he's a ino or a double factor spangle.

Welcome to the forums! You have certainly come to the right place as you will find all you need to know on budgie care here.
The information on the several articles and sticky threads at the top of each section of the forums will be extremely useful and of benefit to you and your budgie.

From the photo you have posted, I would say your little friend is a white based yellow face dark-eyed clear budgie.
The eye looks black in colour to me and the developing irises on Ino budgies (albino, lutino) have a distinguishable colour, it's pinkish mingled with white.
Under a certain light, it's possible to see the very dark iris on dark-eyed clears and recessive pied budgies.
It's also normal to see a faint blue tinge on the body feathers depending on the lighting and this is something not exclusively seen on white based double factor spangle budgies.
