Default New Budgie, help please

Now I'm slowly learning to identify budgies. I picked up two new budgies this afternoon.

One I'm certain of his mutation and colour. This one however I'm not 100%. I'm guessing YF type 2 light green opaline cinnamon hen.

Can someone tell me if I'm correct at my guess or correct it please. Her wings are a definite light brown not back like the photo makes it appear.

I'm probably way off though lol

I'm no good at this sort of thing but her face looks very vibrant. Maybe a golden face?
Someone who actually knows will be along to help shortly.

She looks like a Light Green Opaline Cinnamon so you are pretty close! You can't have a YF green bird, green is dominant so yf only applies to blue birds.

Out of curiosity, what was it the made you think YF? I am interested to know where/how people get confused when learning about the varieties.

Thanks. You know as soon as I read your response, I thought had I ever seen a white face green, of course not, funny lol. But feel better knowing that rest was in the right direction

I have kept budgies for years but sadly mutations are an alien language to me, I only got as far as a beautiful hen with cinnamon, so well done because you weren't far off.
