    Really? None of my other cinnamon blue faced birds haved laced feathers on their backs. So even though the bird has laced feathers, it's still called the same?

    Looks like a cinamon to me, but I don't know a whole lot about buttons.

    Is there a white patch in front? It looks like cinnamon Blue face but if there is a white patch, it could be pied.

    The white patch you see is part of a partial bib in front. This one is still fairly young, so I dont know if its adult feathers have settled in yet, or if they will still change. I am crossing my fingers that he doesnt lose the lacing on his feathers. My other cinnamon males are just cinnamon on their backs.

    Bluefaces don't have bibs, it looks to me like a mark that a double factor blueface would have.
