Default Help! What is he?

Clearwing? Dilute? I tried to go by the pics, but there always seem to be so many possibilities. What is he?

Thanks, he's a sweet little guy, too! Hoping it's a boy to get some balance in my flock...

He looks like he shimmers. Wish I could help with mutation.

I think he's a grey dilute. Although he could be a grey greywing. If this picture was taken with a flash, could you take another one in natural light without flash? Very, very cute!

If he were a clearwing, his body color would be more bold and his cheek patch would be much brighter.

These are without flash, although under artificial light. Millet bribery made it happen lol. I'd have to wait till tomorrow to get a natural light shot in, but maybe these will help a little. The yellowish area is just a stain, apparently the goofy little guy hasn't figured out how to take a bath yet.
