Unfortunately, I'm not able to view the pictures from the links ;( Could you maybe try posting them as attachments or from Photobucket?

Your photos aren't showing up for me either. Take a look at this link below that gives all the detailed steps on how to post pics.

EDIT: I have moved your thread to the Mutations and Genetics section, where it will be given the most proper attention.

I can see one picture, the one of the two chicks. The darker chick looks like a cinnamon, and the lighter chick seems to be a cinnamon greywing.

I can't see the picture of the father, though. Was one of the parents a greywing? Is the father cinnamon or is the mother?

They're beautiful

I'm able to see these pics from photobucket, the ones on your first post I'm still unable to see.

The father is a light green greywing and the mother looks like a light green normal budgie.
To me both chicks' markings look too dark for greywing, and the lighter marked chick seems to have at least one white cheek patch. I would guess they're cinnamon (and girls), but I'm not entirely sure on this.

Also be sure to wash your chicks toenails with some lukewarm water and gently remove the poop remnants with a cotton bud (soaked in the warm water).

Can you post a few more pictures of the chicks by chance?

The dad appears to be a grey green greywing, and the mom a light green normal.

You could have a huge variety of possibilities with parents such as these, so more photos of the chicks will definitely be needed before we can be of much help, if any, when it comes to identifying mutations that could be combined with others as is likely from their appearance.

Do you have any idea of what the grandparents are, of the parents of these chicks?
