Default What's Eric's mutation?

Hi all

This is my mum and dads budgie Eric! He's about 3 years old - can anyone tell me what his mutation is? He seems like such a mixed bag!

Eric is beautiful
He looks like a dominant pied, opaline, dark green, sf violet.
However, mauve goldenface II opaline dom. pied could work, but I think he is a green series?
Confusing or not, that is a beautiful, beautiful boy

He doesn't look dark green to me at all. I have had plenty of dark green budgies over the years (as well as the other different shades) and currently have one (my boy Carioca) and Eric's colouring doesn't seem to match based from the photos.
Also the yellow on a green series budgie should even be more vibrant, and I can see a lot of blue mingled with the yellow and the rump doesn't look dark green at all, in fact it's quite similar to my Goldilock's rump.

To my understanding, the golden face mutation doesn't have the type I and II, there is only differentiation between single factor and double factor.
