Default Parents and baby, mutations help please

So we visited this morning and snapped a few photo's of mom, dad and baby Cowboy. Name is now up in the air, my oldest daughter hates the name Cowboy and is trying desperately to convince everyone of something "hipper and cooler"! LOL, Kids!!!

Here's Poppa Budgie

And Momma Budgie (blue)

Our Baby Budgie outside the nest box! He was snoozing most of the time we were there.

So purely out of curiosity, what varieties are they? Many thanks for all the help you've given!

PS - My oldest daughter wants to name him Eros, the greek god of Love since he hatched around Valentine's day.

From those pics I think the father is an olive green dominant pied opaline budgie.

The mother I'd say is a cobalt violet spangle opaline budgie.

Your little Cowboy is an olive green opaline budgie.

Mom and Dad belong to the breeder. They do not act tame but that could be because of the babies and commotion that ensues around them. Our baby is still with the breeder at least one more week to make sure he is adjusting to being out of his nest box. All the babies (4) ended up yellow. My kids were disappointed, they all wanted a blue. I feel our guy is very handsome though and can't wait to bring him home soon!

You're very welcome!

The chicks are all green series (yellow based) because green is dominant to blue. The father is likely not split for blue (doesn't have a copy of the blue gene) and due to this all chicks will be visually green in colour.
Since the chicks' mother is a visual blue, all chicks while visually green are carriers of the blue gene and if in the future they were to be paired with a blue mate, they would have both blue and green chicks.

I agree completely with Aluz's mutation advice

What a cute little baby! He's going to be able to come home soon!

I'm sure any name you decide on will suit him well
