Default Need some help confirming colors/mutations!

I've been doing some research, and *think* I know what these guys are, but I may be completely off base. Can you help?

1. Bananas - light green recessive pied





2. Anzu - yellowface 1 grey normal





3. Twilight - Cobalt recessive pied






4. Luna - he's a question mark for me - grey dominant pied?





5. Celestia - Mauve dilute greywing?





6. Taz - green normal



7. Houdini - green yellowface?



Any help is much appreciated!!

I agree with you on Bananas mutation and would add that she is opaline as well.
Instead of grey, Anzu is a mauve normal budgie (yellow face I).
For your Twilight I would add single factor violet in addition to what you have said.
Your Luna I think is a mauve dominant pied spangle budgie. The first pic of him with Anzu is better in terms of natural lighting, so I'm basing from what I'm seeing in that photo.
Celestia is a cobalt greywing budgie.
I agree with you on Taz's colours.
And Houdini is a sky blue single factor golden face opaline budgie.

Thanks for the response, I appreciate the help!! Is Houdini only green from the golden face mixing with the blue then?

You're welcome and yes, that's right. The yellow from the golden face gene will spread into the blue feathers making them green in colour.
