Default Baby YF Mauve?

Hi everyone, hoping someone here can help identify what our new feathered friend is.

After some reading, I initially thought she was a normal Yellowface I (single factor) mauve, but after having her home a couple days I'm less sure. Her chest has the 'muddy' blue I think of as mauve, but she looks a little brighter under her wings.

Since she hasn't gone through her first moult yet, is it possible she's actually a cobalt? Could the 'muddier' colour on her chest be a sign the yellow will wash down her body when she moults, or is it just normal colour variation? Or is there another colour adding factor that I'm missing?

Also curious about the yellowface vs. goldenface. If her face is likely to become brighter with her first moult, could she be a goldenface instead? Apparently you can't get budgies with YF II in Australia.

Or am I being impatient, and should just wait and see after she moults?

I think you had it right with Mauve SF YFI. For a YFII I would expect to see more diffusion into the chest even at this age. Another clear give away is the amount of yellow through the wings. YFII will show yellow tinges to the white bars in the wings.

As for Goldenface vs Yellowface, my understanding is that the Goldenface, also known as the Australian Yellowface, is the same shade of yellow as a normal green bird. In this pic your little one look more lemon coloured rather than the bright buttercup colour of green series birds.
