Gender and mutation help?
 
Hi there. :) Long time no see. We had to put Banana down Friday. She had a tumor that was pressing on a nerve, and she lost the ability to walk. Two days later, we "accidentally" came home with 3 new budgies. I have "no" idea how that happened. :giggle: I could use your help with two of them. If you need me to take more pictures, just lemme know and I'll give it a shot.

This is Sassy. She screamed all the way to the cash register. The guy said "she's a sassy one" and the name stuck. I know she's a girl, but I'm lost on her mutation. Thoughts?

And #2 here doesn't have a name yet. Recessive pied, right? I'm horrible with recessive pied ceres. I keep thinking I see lighter color around the nostrils so female, but I'm not sure. Thoughts on this one's gender?
(Edit: We've decided to name this one Pepper. :) )

I'm sorry for your loss of Banana. :hug: :rip: Banana.

I think Sassy is greywing opaline dominant pied. Definitely green series but I don't know which shade of green -- perhaps dark green.

#2 is light green recessive pied male.

Where's #3? :)

Thank you. :) I thought recessive pied male ceres were a deep purple and solid color? I'm so bad at this. :o

#3 is an opaline male. We named him Harry:

Nope, recessive pied males have a cere like a young male, fleshy pink perhaps with a shade of purple.
