Both parents are split to Australian yellow to produce that colour young.

I've had another look at the bird and going by the colour it might be an Australian yellow blue.
If not it will a yellow body bird with a few green feathers in the upper back. If a AVB the green feathers will be blue and the body white.
And split white breast as the white breast on an Australian yellow is different mutation to normal white breast.

The pic does look rather black and white instead of colour.
