    Well if that isn't dirt, then he isn't white. Maybe a cameo or opal silver pied, hard to tell.

    Can you get some close ups of the colored areas? I'm thinking cameo SP -- because the opal on my opal SP is darker than that. My bird is 2 years old for sure -- I hatched him [​IMG]

    The opal is a really cool color. He does have some lighter patches, but not as light as the ones appear in those photos of the new "white" bird.

    Congratulations [​IMG]
    He could just be stained, i have some with brown stains on their back and some with gray but they are molting so these stains on my birds will be gone soon, you will know for sure in a few months weather it is colored this way or just a stain, either way he looks nice.

    And I dunno what you paid for him, but I'm thinking if he was sold as "white" that you got a really good deal! [​IMG]
