Your female is a sky blue opaline cinnamon budgie. Looking at the iris development on her eyes, I'd say she is at least 8 months old.

Your male is a sky blue opaline dominant pied. He looks older, since his irises are clear white in colour. I'd say he is an adult, so he is at the very least 1 year old.
There can be further pied genes influencing him, since his cere is showing the typical colours of an adult double factor dominant pied (two-toned patchy cere showing blue and pink colours).

Thanks Aluz
I got Pippen last summer, so I was positive she was at least a year old, and Berry was slightly older I guess a few months doesn't really matter a lot
Thank you soooo much!!!

This only goes to show that there is always margin for error when estimating ages after the first moult. Your Pippen's irises didn't turn clear white upon reaching adulthood. Hers are definitely darker in colour when compared to your boy's irises.
I have the same thing going with two of my now adult chicks and suspect they are split for recessive pied. They are half siblings and their mother is proven split for recessive pied and so is the father of one of these siblings.

Jonah --
I've merged your two "Mutations" threads into one. No need to clutter up the forum with multiple threads regarding the same topic.

I completely agree with Aluz, who has given a very informative answer (as usual )

I'd just like to add that "ino" is a gene affecting melanin, but not in a bad way. It is responsible for removing all markings on a bird in a variation on albinism, so any bird that is "Ino" will either be albino or lutino (yellow-based albino) and it's nothing to worry about! It's considered a genetic mutation just like recessive pied
