Arrow Confirming my budgies' mutations

Ok so I breed budgies, have been for a couple of years. One thing I'm still no expert at is determining their mutations. I've been reading a lot on genetics and have made some "guesses" at what types some of my budgies are.

I would really like to get the right info though, just in case I'm way off

Here are the ones I'd like to confirm, (let's see how close I was!):

This is Minx

This is Nisha

https://i631.photobucket.com/albums/u...ies/jetta2.jpg

https://i631.photobucket.com/albums/u...ies/jetta1.jpg

Nisha is light grey (at least looks grey to me), doesn't show well on the pictures



and finally, this is Raya:

so what would you say they are ?

ok so I was right about the first one

although, the second one really does not seem sky blue. The picture doesn't show it well I guess, but it's definitely gray to me

ok I have this other picture of Nisha, the coloring might be better in this one

Looks like she has pink on her head but I think it's because she's been hanging around the pink vitamine block a little too much
