Default Confused about budgies mutation

Hi everyone, I am hoping that someone out there can help me. I have just got into budgies in the last 18 months and have just had my 1st 2 clutches hatch, they are now 3 & 4 weeks.

I paired up what I think is a normal cobalt blue male with a yellow female that I believe is dominant pied, split for blue and may also have ino genes as one of her cheek patches has white in it.

I understand from all my research that the yellow based budgie is more dominant than the white therefore I was expecting yellow based budgies. What a surprise I got when she ended up with 2 white based babies.

I was wondering what other people think her mutation might be, am I right. Also is anyone could also tell me what the babies are.

Picture 1 & 2 is Mum (Honey)
Picture 3 is Dad (Scooby)
Picture 4 is baby 1 (had red eyes which have now darkened, not sure what mutation is)
Picutre 5 is baby 2 (has red eyes and looks all white so will possibly be albino)

Let me know if pictures donít give enough of an idea.

Mum is a Light Green Dominant Pied, Dad is a Cobalt Blue Normal split Opaline, Cinnamon and INO.

The first baby is Cobalt Blue Dominant Pied Cinnamon, and the second is Albino, and they should both be females.

Honey is an olive green double factor dominant pied.

Scooby is a cobalt blue normal (his offsprings prove that he is split for ino, opaline and cinnamon).

Baby 1 is a cinnamon opaline mauve blue dominant pied hen. (cinnamon babies have red plum eyes from day1 to day5. From day6 onwards the eyes darkened).

Baby 2 is an ino hen masking dominant pied, cinnamon and opaline (either 1,2 or all). Dark factor could be 1 or 2.

Anyway, since you're colony breeding, Honey could have mated with Scooby or has multiple mates in an aviary setting. Hence Scooby's split mutations are assumptions.

Thanks for your replies. Looks like I need to do a little more research into the different mutations although I seem to have got some right. Yesterday avo when having a closer look at Scooby I did notice the opaline in him so I am slowing getting an understanding.

I am pretty sure that Scooby is the dad as I have never seen Honey with anyone else. Next breeding season I will be using separate breeding boxes but I haven't this time as I am still getting them made and set up.
