Cool Colour Help

Hi guys can I have some help please on the following

Donald & Daisy Photo by robertjoedaniell1988 | Photobucket

This is Donald and Daisy. I know she's a albino but is he a sky blue grey wing? Also what would the offspring be?

Dennis Photo by robertjoedaniell1988 | Photobucket

This is Dennis. What colour is he, he is green and blue.

Rolo Photo by robertjoedaniell1988 | Photobucket

What colour are these three? The two white/yellow ones are paired. No iris rings but the eyes appear to be black.

Grey Photo by robertjoedaniell1988 | Photobucket

What colour is she, she's different from my normal greys.

Donald appears to be a Normal Sky Violet... As far as their chicks, can't tell not knowing what the parents of the albino are...

Dennis is a Cobalt Blue Golden Face Opaline. As far as I can tell ((may be yellowface type II))

The three picture...

The closest one is a Yellowface type II or Golden face, Spangle maybe opaline. The other appears to be a Double Factor Dominant pied Golden face... Some pictures of the breast will help with identification. The further away one appears to be opaline.. but other than that I can't tell, to far away.

Donald - looks like a Cobalt and if his wings are brownish then a Cinnamon, otherwise Normal.

Dennis - looks like a Cobalt Blue Golden Face Opaline.

Rolo - Dark Green Spangle I would think.

Grey - Grey Opaline Normal - Grey comes in three shades (Light, Medium and Dark) and can be patchy or smooth, altered byt eh variety etc, so can look quite varied.

The last one could be Mauve or Grey, depending on cheek patch and tail feather colour.

The pale yellow/white ones are some sort of yellow face. If the eyes are red then they are YF Albinos, if the eyes are dark then they would be DF Spangles (with an iris ring) or Dark Eyed Clears (without iris ring)....have I forgotten any other options??? Better photos may indicate other vaireties...do they have much body colour?

Hi guys thanks. I have taken numerous shots but they are quick lil buggers to catch. Regarding the two yellow/whites. The male closest is more yellow dark eyes no iris ring, yellow front also. The female is more creamish white with hints of yellow around eyes and wings and front of face, dark eyes no iris.

Donald has grey wings rather than brownish or black.

And with the grey she could be light grey but her wing colours are the same where as my male grey has black wing markings. Also her cheek patches aren't blue, they are very pale and not really noticeable.

The mauve looking girl has blue patches.
