Goldentop Budgie

A dominant mutation very similar to Goldenface, but with stronger coloring and healthier genes. They are most easily identified at the juvenile stage; DF Goldenfaces have pale yellow faces, while Goldentops have a similar shade to the adults. Their SF and DF forms differ in the same ways Goldenface does, with SF forms having yellow coloration suffused throughout, while DF forms do not. This mutation was identified at some point around 2013, but has existed in collections for far longer.

The first pictured budgie is an adult SF Goldentop + Violet + Rainbow, while the second pictured budgie is a juvenile DF Goldentop + Violet + Rainbow.
