Question Three beautiful budgies

Hello all,

Today we stopped by a local pet shop and these three budgies stood out to us. They were so unique!

1) Our best guess is that it's a single dark factor blue. We know that young birds are supposed to have the undulations on the forehead, but is it normal for it to be so heavy? It was very striking, reaching all the way down to the cere.

2) Our guess for this is a sky blue greywing. It was hard to walk away from this bird. (We have a light green greywing, so if this had been a female it would have been even harder--they would make such cute babies!)

3) We think this last one is a mauve/violet SF yellowface I based on the dark blue/gray body color and the yellow face. We had never seen a budgie like this at a shop.

Now we know where this "budgieholic" bug comes from! So many gorgeous types out there, you just want them all!

Thanks for the help with the IDs!

Number 1 is a cobalt blue normal female, her barrings are normal, she's just very young.

Number 2 is a sky blue greywing opaline budgie, by little I can see from the cere, it seems to be a female.

Number 3 seems to be a yellow face type I mauve male budgie.
Depending whether the yellow is spreading on his tummy/chest feathers he could be a YF type II.
