Default Mutation question

I have a female that is probably a dominant pied (pattern looks like a typical dominant pied, but the other eye has no iris ring) and either greywing or clearwing (or full body color greywing). Problem is that I'm not sure about her body color.

Her wing pattern (or what's left after the pied effect) is very light. Lighter than any of my greywings. I also feel like her body color is a bit brighter, but as I haven't got other sky blues I'm not sure. Her cheek patches look definitely a shade darker than my greywings, but still nowhere near of normals.

Could someone give me some ideas what she might be? In the one picture she is behind my greywing male and there's a clear difference in the cheek patches and I think body suffusion also (though the male is probably a cobalt anyway).

From the pictures she seems to be a sky blue greywing (cheek patches seem lighter in colour when compared to full body greywing) and since you mention she has one eye fully black and the other has the iris, then she is also a combination pied budgie, meaning she has both dominant and recessive pied genes mixed in.
She's a beauty!
