Default What are they?

I really don't understand how to identify the mutations of my budgies. Please help.

This is Sini, is she a violet?

I think Sini is a violet cobalt dominant pied opaline budgie.
Hilda is a yellowface type I cobalt dominant pied, also opaline I think.
Emile is a yellowface type I sky blue normal budgie.
Jean is either a goldenface or a yellowface type II cobalt blue dominant pied spangle budgie.

Wow. Quite the mouthful. Thank you so much! Hilda and Sini both have black markings on their wings, is that typical for opalines?

Hilda doesn't have the v area of lighter markings on her back, so does that mean she is not an opaline? Sini does have that but her main tails feathers are all white.

Also, how can you tell the difference between golden face and yellow face II? Jean has a very vibrant yellow on his face, I always thought that meant he's a golden face?

Thank you! Jean is very handsome indeed. He and Hilda are a couple so it would be interesting to see what their babies would look like.
