Question Mutations???

Ok, I posted a thread before, but no one found it, for it had been a while before I put up some photos!

These birds are beyond me! I love mutations, and know them well, but the combinations of these birds confuse me to crazy lengths!

I've added photos of my thrillingly, mysteriously, and dumbfoundingly colored parakeets.
In order:
Butterfly Side
Butterfly Rump
Silver Front
Silver Rump

Please give me your input, you Fantastic Breeders about what these birds' mutations are!

My guess would be some sort of dilute for butterfly and cobalt greywing for silver but I'm really not sure on butterfly. Dilutes aren't common and I haven't been able to get a lot of experience with what they look like.

I agree with Allie, Silver is a greywing. I think Butterfly may be a greywing as well, but I'm not sure. You could try to match them on Lindsay's site: https://www.cutelittlebirdiesaviary.c...or-guides.html

Ok, yea, I agree that Silver is a grey greywing, but there are many images that match with pieces of Butterfly. Grey wing, dilute and diluted clearbody (either) all look like they'd match up with her. Do you think she could have one of the clearbodies in her feathers???
Thanks for the help you guys!!! Now that I know what Silver is, I know exactly who I'll match her to in about 5 months when they are fully prepared for breeding!

Do you mean a dilute texas clearbody? I guess it's possible but I've never seen that combination so I can't really be of any help.

Hello, I think Butterfly is dilute, because the color of the cheek patches, wings and body are washed out a lot and Silver is greywing, you can see markings on wings and body color is not washed out much. Clearwings have full body color and bright cheek patches that I can’t see in yours.

Ohh did you mean a clearwing?? I was confused as to what you meant by "clearbody". I agree with Slavik, dilute seems most likely.

Ok, cool, Dilutes are some of my favorites. So she's a YF2 Dilute. Is there anything else that may suggest another mutation? (Sorry for all the questions, I'm recording my flock's mutations for later reference in breeding)
