Default Pleas help me with their mutations!

I did have another thread about their color, but that was in breeding when I gave an update on the chicks.
Mom: Wild type split for blue
Dad: Wild type split for blue
Chicks: Appear to be yellow face type two, second to hatch has a patch of clear on his head, and their rump feathers look like a ridiculously iridescent blue, green, and yellow rainbow.
I can't tell if they're white or yellow base, because honestly, it looks like they were mixed to create a new mutation, or they might be speckled halfsiders maybe????
HELP PLEASE! I'm very intrigued and confused my the lil' angels.

Oh, and I know about half siders, and I don't mean that!

Wow, they sound really intriguing! I'm in no
way experienced enough to offer any help, but
I would certainly love to see photos of your babies!

It's just that my camera is busted!!!! GaH! I'll see what I can do! I'll try to get the pics somehow, but until I do, does anyone have any thoughts? Ideas? Guesses? I was kinda guessing (and I'm probably wrong) YF2 Sky or Cobalt Speckled Half-sider for the first lil' guy, and for the second chick YF2 Sky (Maybe split for rec. pied as I was told by another member here because of the clear patch on his head) Speckled Half-Sider.
I know two halfsider is waaaaaay odd, but they really look like it! So any input would be very appreciated!

I just took a look, and yay! My digital camera is working now! Must have just been a small glitch! So I took the pics!
The first is of Mom (Their dad looks exactly the same as the mom)
The second is of the oldest chick
The third is of the oldest chick
The fourth is of the oldest chick
and the fifth is of the second chick (Notice the clear feather on the back of his head)
Although some of the pics are taken with flash and toy with the cere color, I can assure you they're boys.
Yea, there is flash, but that's exactly what they look like!
I have another pic that may suggest a Fallow mutation for the second chick.

And here's the last pic, took me a minute to upload...
It's of the second chick, notice the blurriness of the back feathers! Fallow?

Fallows have red eyes and brown markings, I believe.
