really nice pic! beautiful bird. You always have a nice card in your sleeve, Peter.
I think in some dom. pied agapornis this feature exists, but I don't have any examples. I will ask Andre v.d. Brom, he breeds pied agapornis, don't remember which species.
To be honest in my case I don't know yet how to work with this mutation.
I paired the original cock to a green hen.
I got 6 siblings, 2 pied cocks, 2 pied hens and 2 green hens. A second clutch of 1 pied hen and 1 pied cock.
All the pied offspring show some feathers with this pattern, but most of the pied part are full-evenly colored feathers.
So it seems that the allele only transmits with the dominant pied mutation, and now the idea is to achieve spreading the special feathers as much as possible.
