Cool What is these 2's mutations?

Hi all, I saw these 2 beautiful budgies today and decided to get them, they are currently in quarentene together and i have been told they are no older than 4 months.

They are salt and pepper
Salt is the Male (blue cere) i think he is a green spangle dilute YF type 2 (i think)
Pepper is (what i think is) a recessive green budgie but i am not sure on the sex.

sorry about pictures, it's late night here so had to use flash but they do show their true colors pretty well

Thank you

The yellow bird is a light green recessive pied hen.

The other one is male. I think he is:
Sky blue
Yellowface II or goldenface
Opaline
Clearwing or full body color greywing (he doesn't look diluted to me)
Hard to tell with that lighting.

Most budgies have black head and wing markings. The recessive pied mutation in your hen has obliterated almost all of those markings.

just seen a light green opaline recessive pied which looks exactly like pepper so my guess she is opaline too.

as for salt, it is a mind boggle trying to find the right mutations, i will look again tomorrow when i am more awake

The little boy in the last picture is a rainbow budgie, I'm pretty sure it has all the right mutations for it.

I would say he is Skyblue Yellow Face 2 Spangle Opaline Greywing.

You can't have a Green Yellow Face as Yellow Face is recessive to green, so it would just be a green bird. The YF causes yellow to show on some of the blue causing a green colour.

A green budgie is actually blue with yellow covering the whole bird making it look green. A blue is one with the yellow removed, and the various yellow face varieties have the yellow returned to some degree.

could he be a golden face type 1? as the yellow is pretty deep yellow plus the yellow goes into his wings and back, his body is a mixture of green and blue.

what mutations would need to be together to be a "rainbow"?
