Default Mutation help

Hello, long time no see. It's been a while since I've gotten new budgies (my last round of newcomers was two years ago) and so I'm rusty with genetics. I was hoping you could tell me what this girl's mutation is.

Back:


Front (I love that one cheek patch is white and the other is blue):


Side (she's the one on the left):


Edit: I'm adding some natural sunlight no-flash photos. In the group shots, the girl is on the left. I'm wondering if she's cobalt blue or violet sky blue, or something else.




Photo bombed...


And just because her sleeping is adorably cute...

I think she is a sky blue dominant pied budgie (could be a combination pied and be split for recessive because she seems to have characteristics of both mutations).
Beautiful birdies you have there!

Thank you. The girl is cobalt [edit: or maybe sky violet?] (for comparison, sky blue is the boy on the right in the last picture). But beyond that, I'm lost.

The white head throws me off. Between that, the blue shoulders, and the way her few back markings look, I was thinking maybe opaline? I was guessing dominant pied too, but I wasn't sure. Could she be double factor dominant pied? I guess it'll help when she grows up and we see if she gets iris rings or not.

Now that you mentioned she does have a darker shade of blue. But I think cobalt is darker than that colour. She must be sky blue violet. What threw me off was her eyes and if she keeps those baby black eyes without developing irises then she is a combination pied by having traits of dominant and the baby black eyes (from being spilt recessive). Double factor dominant pied budgies have iris rings.

You know, I've been wondering about violet. I didn't think I'd be lucky enough to find a violet in a pet store, though. I'll have to get as much sunlight into that room as I can tomorrow and get a better look. Does violet get darker as they grow up? The boy on the left in this picture is the violet I have, and the purple is easy to see when he's in the sunlight. (If you're wondering about his curly feet, he has splayed legs. His breeder gave him to us for free, she just wanted him to have a good home.) He looks plain ole blue in artificial light. He was older when I got him, though.

I guess we'll know about the iris rings in a few months. Until then, I'll enjoy the baby bars and eyes while they last.

Edit: I added four natural sunlight no-flash photos to my original post.

She's either Cobalt or Sky Blue single factor Violet, and most likely double factor Dominant Pied. She's a cutie.

Maybe Opaline too, now that I look again.
