Default confused with the color mutation of these chicks

Hi, I know its to early to say for sure what mutation they are but this is the first time I've bred budgies so I am a bit confused the chicks aren't even a bit like their parents so I wanted to know are they a different mutation or they'll get their colors later on
I'm sorry if I'm being silly, it's just that I'm new to this so I'm a bit overexcited...lol
Here are afew pics of the parents and chicks ...thanks

both parents are spangle, opaline and yellowface. Some of your chicks have a high possibility to be Double Factor spangles with yellowface. Which will mean that they are completely white with only the yellowface markings (splotchy yellow on face an body).
The others will be yellowface opaline spangles similar to the parents.

You will be able to start picking colours once the actual body feathers emerge, so far its just the down feathers to keep them warm.

You should get some nice ones from that pair as Rose has described.

Rose and Toni are both right, I would like to add that it's likely you'll get a few who are yf II like the dad, which means sea green budgies!
Beautiful parents, they are a gorgeous couple

Ohh wow budgie mutation are so complex...I just did a search on the internet and it's amazing how genetics work. I always thought the chicks turn out like their parents but it seems it's more complex than that.
Unfortunately for the taking care part I've had to travel alot the past few months so I left them with a friend and when I got back they had laid eggs and I didn't want to disturb them so I mainly get updates through pics or occasional visits... But I know he is doing a good job
Thanks for the replies and time

Grey is dominant, so one of the parents have to be grey for any chicks to be grey. is there a possibility that another male could have sired them? Did the pair go with other birds prior to mating/egglaying?

The one in the middle on the last picture appears to be a DF spangle.
