Smile What are the new guys?

"Rescued" two new budgies a few days ago from owners who didn't care for them, they came to me both in one small cage and fought a lot so they've been put into separate cages close together for quarantine from my own budge.
Ray's the yellow and green, Blue is the... well.. blue one (originally called Missy but think she's a male) and Ollie's the blue with yellow head (had to include her )
I was wondering if anyone could tell me the mutations for them, and sexes just to clear things up for me XD Blue's an English but not sure on Ray. Also I'm worried that Blue has something up with her cere, it looks lots worse on the picture than it does in real life and I don't think it's scaly face but it could be. This is what made me believe he was a girl at first sight
Thanks for your help!

Ray is a GORGEOUS Light Green Dominant Pied male.

Blue is a normal Sky Blue male. I'd be treating for scaly face just in case, it could look a bit like it to me. Better to be safe than sorry!

Cute little Ollie is a YF (not sure what type, I'm horrible with that!) Cobalt Opaline.

Or at least that's what I think they are!

I second everything Tracy said, but would add that Ray also appears to be opaline.

Has Ollie had her first molt yet? If so, then she's a YF1, as a YF2's body feathers will turn greeny-blue after their first molt, but a YF1's will stay blue.

Such gorgeous birds, all three! Congrats!

Actually, now that I've compared with a few other photos, I think Ollie might be a Goldenface, not a Yellowface. Her face would be paler if she were a YF, but at least in that photo you've posted, it looks like a pretty vivid shade! So, if she's had her first molt, she's a Double Factor (body feathers stay blue), but if not, wait and see. If she turns greeny-blue, she's a Single Factor.

I'm not exactly an expert on this stuff, though, so perhaps someone else can weigh in?

Ray - Opaline dominant pied light green male

Ollie - Type 1 yellow face female

Blue - Normal sky blue male. Not scaly face but it doesn't look healthy, would probably benefit from a worm drench and some TLC
