Need some help identifying mutations from experts.

I had a lot of different opinnions for each of my budgies and based on the babies they produced i managed to identify some genetic features in some of my budgies, but i need as many opinions as possible, so all opinions are welcomed.

Photo 1 and 2 are the male which i think is Cobalt Yellowface type 2 (SPLIT to Blue), Opaline, Clearwing(?) (SPLIT to Dilute)

Photo 3 (photo is from a petshop before i bought her, i treated the budgie for scaly mites with invermectin), i think is Mauve(?), Goldenface (SPLIT to Blue), Opaline, Dilute, Violet_Factor(?)

Photo 4 is of their babies. i also have new photos of other colour babies like Mauve Dilutes.

I need help for a more correct identification of the parrents please. thanks in advance.

This is another of their children. I think it is a Mauve, Goldenface(?), Dilute

Is there anybody that knows about mutations? I need other opinions. Maybe the word "EXPERT" in the Post header was a bit harsh. Please note English is not my basic language, so sometimes i might write stuf that don't make any sense :P

Please be patient. :)

Sometimes it takes awhile for our experts to have a chance to read through the threads and post responses. ;)

In the meantime, please take a look at this link:

You'll find WONDERFUL information there that should be quite helpful to you.

(I softened your thread title a bit by putting "experts" in lower case and adding a "please". I think you are doing VERY well in your writing considering English isn't your first language. :thumbsup:)

I wish I could help but you already know how confused I get when it comes to diluted types and all their combinations. :D

Hopefully you are able to figure it out. For what it's worth, your guesses sound right to me although I'm not sure if that Mauve in the second post is GF, looks a bit pale to be. Do I see opaline there too?

Can you post a few more current photos of the hen? It is hard to see her true color in the current photo.

Also I must ask if you are breeding in cages or in a colony setting? The chicks do not appear to be the true chicks of the pair in question given their mutations.

I've just missed you being around is all :p I know it sounds silly but it's true. I try to do my best when people ask for mutation help but my guesses are never as good as your expert eye :)
