What color/markings would these 3 be considered? I know the two on the outsides are normal marked but the girl in the middle looks different then the other two

You're absolutely right The female on the outside and the male on the outside are both sky blue normals.

The female is a sky blue opaline. The opaline gene makes the feather pattern different, as instead of the usual white edging around the feathers, the body colour suffuses in. Also, she has lighter facial barring because of this gene.

Are they siblings? What beautiful birds

I'm new to this thread and can't figure out how to ask a question lol. I had a similar question as the OP which is why I decided this was the best place to ask ... I am not sure what the age of my bird is or the type of budgie my bird is lol. It's a lost bird I took in a month ago. I know it's a female. I've posted pics below.

Thanks in advance

They are not siblings actually and that is exactly what I thought they where. Just wanted to double check haha. I just love blues. I have these 3 pretty ones, a female albino (she is very tame and so sweet. All our other keets are deathly afraid of people) and a df pied male . Id love to find a grey keet. But for now 5 is plenty lol

@StarlingWings

Thank you! I've named her Tommy, but that was before I knew it was a female. I could have changed her name after finding out but the name stuck with our family haha.

I find that she can be aggressive at times and I am unable to have her sit on my fingers at all. I am however able to feed her with my hands but I have to keep the food at a length because she bites hard. I'm not sure if this is a phase and whether or not it will pass once she gets used to me. Any suggestions?
