Default What mutations are my budgies please?

Hello Everyone, thank you for taking the time to read and hopefully reply
I have 2 pairs just starting to breed. I have been told my first pair, the white hen and the blue cock, are a Cobalt. Violet (SF) Opaline Texas Clearbody, and a Cobalt Violet (DF) Normal. Is this correct?
The next pair is the green hen and bright yellow cock. I think she's a cinnamon green, and he's a pied, but that's the extent of my knowledge unfortunately.
The last one is the light yellow and blue hen.
I also have 2 normal green cocks to pair up the single hen (I've named her buttercup) and I'm looking for another hen.

I can't really see from the first pic, other than you have two recessive pieds. So from the second pic, it looks to me like ...

Top Right - Light Green Recessive Pied
Top Left - Light Green Cinnamon Wing
Middle Left - Cobalt Violet (I can never work out if DF or SF) Normal
Middle Right - Opaline, Texas Clearbody can't see colouring but must be either a blue or a grey
Bottom - Sky Blue, SF Yellowface II, Recessive Pied

So, I am pretty much agreeing with you

As always will be interested to see how good my mutation identification is once the experts arrive

Thank you very much Milipidi
Yes the first photo was shocking, typical it was the only one out of three to upload. The second one has all the birds in that I was asking about so thank you the middle right is a blue as she has blue flecks through her bottom half. I never would have picked the bottom one, very interesting! I can't wait to see what babies they have!
