Duster parakeet.

This is a Duster budgie. Sometimes budgies hatch out with a genetic mutation that causes their down feathers to grow superlong and out of control, to the point that their other feathers don't come in. A lot of breeders euthanize Duster chicks because they are "special needs" and don't live as long as other budgies.
