Default Baby Mutation Help

We have a budgie chick who is 19 days old and we are stumped on his/her mutation. The hen is a Dark Green, Violet, Dominant Pied, Opaline, Split Blue and Grey wing and the cock is a Sky Blue, Single Factor Violet, Grey wing, Combination Pied. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here is a picture of the Chick in question:

My knowledge of mutations is too limited to be of much help, but since both parents have the dom pied gene the changes of this one being a dom pied is very high. It could also be dom pied DF. Both parents also have the greywing gene - so this one can be a greywing and it can also be a violet. I'm going to take a WILD guess: Green violet Dom pied (df) greywing. Hope Lindsey find this thread so that we can be sure.
It is a adorable little bird!!

I don't think he is dominant piped, because he doesn't have any white on him at all. Thanks for the help.

I agree with Jerry, looks like a cinnamon dark green and probably violet to me too I don't see any pied either.

Sorry it has taken a bit for everyone to respond on this thread, and for your patience and extra pics which are always helpful Hannah

Thanks for the help!! That would be great if she was cinnamon, She just doesn't seem as brown as most cinnamon I see pictures of. She defiantly doesn't have black markings, But they aren't totally brown or gray either. Is it possible to be a mix of grey wing and cinnamon?

Sorry if that was to many pictures!
