Greens can't be yellowfaced. They are all like that

thanks for attempting to pick what they are. i find it really difficult to understand the mutations thing. i have books i have tried to read, and i have tried to read about it on here, but it just makes my head spin a bit.
i thought Alby was a cinnamon? but see thats it, im confused.
is there a really simplified version of mutation explanation, or is it complicated whichever way you look at it?

I think its complicated no matter how you look at it

Here is my Yellow face (she's a type 2 though) she's a cinnamon you should be able to see the difference between Her wings and Alby's wings






if you notice Jasmines wings are brown - Alby's is normal

I had the birds mixed up LOL

but it still doesn't look brown to me, it looks grey

I have 2 babies who look just like him , One is grey wing other is cinnamon

these 2 are light Green Grey wing



These 2 are light green Cinnamon - one is also Opaline (and i think thats why the brown is darker) on her than her sibling



in this pic the top one is the lighter brown



Oh and all 4 of these Light Green babies are related - just 2 different clutches and 2 different dads

cute photos!!!!!
well i think i understand the difference between a grey-wing and a cinamon all because of your help atvchick95, although i just then went and looked at Alby up close and im not sure if he is one or the other. i can see in your last post, the middle pic with the very brown wings - Alby's are lighter, but still seem more brown than grey.
you I.D.'d Hunter as a grey grey-wing (possible spangle) so im looking from Hunter to Alby and im sure Alby is more brown than grey...
you have made things easier for me to understand- thanks heaps
