Talos I think is Grey-Green Opaline, and Rhea is Yellowface II Spangle?
I'm not quite sure on these ones, sorry.
They're very cute though

I thought Rhea might have been a yellowface type II "seafoam"? Spangle.

I also thought Talos was an Olive Green (Because he has blue tail) but he also has a blue/violet tinge to his chest down to his tummy/vent (and its this that really confuses me) and Freki was Grey-Green (Because he has a brown tail) but like i said i'm not 100% on mutations but i am learning (well trying to anyway )

I've been wrong a few times and well, i'm not confident in what i "know", and i'm always second guessing myself

Hmm wheres Lindsey when you need her haha

Talos looks like this to me: https://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebl...n-budgies.html

Rhea looks like a seafoam (yellowface II SF sky) spangle

well looking through my photo misshaps/recycle bin i found this photo of his tail.



It may or may not help, but i think he could be a violet-green, your post/CLBA website link seems to be describing Talos pretty much bang on so hmm...

Talos could be Violet but you can't see it because he's green?

I must have missed your post on getting new birds. No idea what the mutation is but they are certainly gorgeous. Congratulations!

Would Rhea be considered golden face due to the depth and intensity of the yellow? If stunning, wonderful and amazing are mutations you have those Rhea does have an amazing aqua colour, and the purple/blue sheen on Talos reminds me of the green violets I have seen, as he grows you may see hints of it around his leg feathers, violet is hidden all over it seems! as only the cobalt birds usually show it visually, but other colours do inherit it.

Can you post photos of them in natural light with no flash? They both look very different in each photo and in the photos you sent me. If I were just using the first picture, I'd say she was a violet light green cinnamon spangle. But in the second pic she looks like a YF blue and not green at all. Is it possible to get shots of them individually? He looks like a YF2 opaline violet cobalt. But, I must admit, I'm certainly not sure. I've PM'd Lindsey to ask her opinion as well. Hopefully she'll come along and put me to shame and give you the correct answer.
