    After my dad's friend for given a pair of budgies from a bad owner (seed bowl all husks, broken perches, poo in water and the dirtiest cage bottom i have ever seen in my life).
    They were given to me.

    The female i named Lily and is a single factor opaline spangle that may also be pied.
    The male i named snow (after John snow) and is a violet cobalt blue clear wing.

    Any way. I looked and was interested to see the female had white and blue in her cheek patches (this is typical of spangled though so no surprise she has that). But she also has one blue foot and one pink foot!

    She is not losing circulation or I'll in any way as she uses it normally and perches and clings fine.
    So what mutation caused that?

    Hi Lauren, what a gorgeous pair you have there, great that they have come to you, it doesn’t sound like much time was being spent on them. I don’t know the answer to your question, but perhaps some of our budgie members can help.

    There are very mutations that can affect feet colour. Dopamine, spangle, pied etc can all affect it.

    You would need to post much clearer in focus pictures of the birds from the front, side, back and they need to be done in natural light, to determine the mutations as the pictures aren't clear enough.
