Default What colours are my adults and babies?

Right, after going through about a billion websites and threads about budgie colours, I decided to ask you what colour my budgies are - there's too many to compare and I just get confused! they are all probably very normal and nothing exceptional, but I'm curious to know how they're called!

There's also a budgie baby in the nest who keeps confusing me - I named it Dusty as I thought there was only gray, and now there is some blue showing on the chest, back and cheeks so I'd like to know the possible name of this colour as I'm dying to know how it'll look like once grown up! This little one was supposed to go to a family member, but I am bonding with this baby big time and might just have to keep it...

I added pictures of another baby as well in case someone knows what colour it will be, just out of curiosity!

Thank you!



Here are the adults

And the 2 babies

Adults: First pic I'm not totally sure on, I would say normal green cinnamon opaline? male. Second pic looks like a yellow face type 2 normal green female. 3-5 is a cobalt dominant pied female. 6-7 looks like a yellow face type 2 sky blue female

The babies, I can't really tell because the lighting washes out their color. The first one looks like a normal opaline, but I can't tell what color. The second looks like a cinnamon opaline, and may even be a violet? It's really hard to see their color on my screen though

Thank you for your answer, helps a lot! I hope one day I will be able to tell all the colours and learn to remember them as well

As for the babies, the second one has brown/gray kind of feathers in his wings, and as the dad of those babies is cinnamon, I guess it's very much possible. Feathers on the back are looking very light blue at the moment. Can't wait for my babies to grow!
