Question Mutation help?

Hi guys! I was wondering if someone could help me with the mutations of my lovely babies. I'm just now getting into the different mutations and such and can't figure out for the life of my what mine are.

Thanks in advance!

(Left) This is Zeus, (Right) This is Nova. My first two babies. They're about a year and a half old right now. This picture was taken about 13 months ago.

This is Gemini, she's about 8 months old and my 3rd baby.

and this is my newest baby, Apollo. She's such a character. She was born May 2014 and she's such a sweet baby. <3







Thanks so much to everyone that helps!

My guesses:
Nova (cock bird) - sky blue double factor dominant pied.
Zeus (hen) - dark green greywing.
Gemini (hen) - sky blue greywing some-sort-of-pied.
Apollo (looks male to me?) - sky blue yellowface I opaline dominant pied.

Nice flock!

Cute couple!
Awh, thank you very much! They're both finally in breeding conditions now and I'm just wondering what kind of babies they'd have. Thanks for helping! cx

Thank you!! I really had no idea where to start with the mutations so this helps a lot.
Apollo is actually a girl, I thought her cere would darken but it's stayed a light pastel blue. The pictures lighting makes her look a lot darker than she is. :~))
