Default Mutation help

Hello all, I have been trying to do this myself but it is very difficult, I kind of get the impression I have not had the easiest of birds to start learning with either lol. I have tried my absolute best to get the pictures in as good quality as I can, and from the right angles. They don't keep still for nearly long enough for my poor old phone camera to keep up with. So I don't expect miracles haha. If possible a idea of sex would be grand also. I know I ask a lot!

They have been affectionately named 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 as I thought it was best to leave that up to they new homes when they find them. I am hoping I can supply as much information as possible to their future staff.

This is 5, I'd keep this little cuddle monster if I could.


This is 4


And 3


2


And last but not least, 1



Forgive the photo quality and my newbie status, thanks ever so much!

Wow, they are so cute!!

No. 5:
He is a "he", and is a skyblue opaline spangle yellowface II

No. 4:
He appears to be a possible male but I'm unable to see much of the cere. He's recessive pied, cobalt, yellowface.

No. 3:
He (boy!) is a yellowface, opaline, cobalt. I can't tell if he's recessive or dom. pied from the pictures you posted, though

No. 2:

He is also male, and is a cobalt, yellowface spangle. He appears to be greywing, as well, because of his faint markings.

No. 1:

Another beautiful little boy, and cobalt, spangle, opaline, yellowface Can't tell if he might have greywing, too, from those pics.

I wish they were coming home with me, instead!

Thank you everyone for the comments, and a special thanks starlingwings for the id! I really do wish I could keep them all, number 5 will be especially hard to see go! They are like 5 tiny super excitable puppy's really funny to watch and play with.

I agree with StarlingWings, except to add that no.3 is a Recessive Pied and with such heavy wing markings I'd guess it was a girl at this point. I find it hard to predict sexes at this age but no. 1 looks/feels like a girl to me also.
