Default What mutation might this chick be?

I'm looking for a second bird to keep Arashi company and have been in contact with a breeder in my local area. She sent me photos of her oldest chicks now, and I was wondering if you guys could help see what mutations they might be, despite them not having full feathers yet.

For now, these are the two I'm curious about.. Photos are used with curtesy of the breeder.

The first chick is a spangle and possibly sky blue in colour, maybe violet too.
It would be easier to tell once we see the colour on the chest area or even the legs.
The second chick is a sky blue golden face opaline budgie.

What would the golden face mean to its adult colours?

Thank you for the response. I will probably receive more pictures and updates from the breeder, also as her younger chicks start to grow into their feathers

The Golden Face means that as it moults into adult plumage the yellow will 'wash' down making the Skyblue into a more green shade. Sometimes they can end up looking mostly green, other times it only alters the upper chest and you have a green and blue body colour.

I agree with Toni and Aluz
Also, Goldenface is like a darker version of Yellowface so the greens will be darker than with YF.
Gorgeous chicks!

So I have a little update. Got a few more pics from the breeder. Can you give me any mutation input on this little fella?

what a beautiful little fella, I'm gonna take a guess and say that s\he is a yellowface sky blue spangle, with the possibility of opaline too as I can see a little hints of blue on the wings "the opaline part I'm not sure of", it should be clearer once fully feathered up, anyway lets wait for the experts opinions.
