Billy- Normal Cobalt, maybe Violet
Baby- Cobalt (or Violet?) Opaline
Ty- Yellowface 2 Opaline Greywing
Taylor- Sky Blue Yellowface 2 Opaline Clearflight Pied (or Dominant Pied)
Bruno- Normal Cobalt
Carlos- Dominant Pied Yellowface 2 Opaline
Not sure but Gaby looks like a Yellowface 2 Opaline
Summer- Spangle
Lil- Violet Cinnamon Spangle Opaline?
Phil- Cinnamon Yellowface 2
Bo- Recessive Pied Opaline

I'm certain on the mutations but I don't know about the colours, they are all Cobalts and Sky blues and violets I think...

Billy normal cobalt

Baby opaline cobalt (may have a violet factor)

Ty Type 1 yellow face opaline greywing (may be violet)

Taylor yellow face opaline dominant pied (need a front view picture to be sure of pied type which could be clearflight)

Bo recessive pied cobalt

Bruno cinnamon cobalt or sky blue (the cinnamon dilutes the body colour)

Gaby Type 2 yellow face cobalt (yellow has spread making it appear green) may have another mutation as well but need a back picture

Carlos yellow face dominant pied cobalt

Summer spangle cobalt (looks sky blue in 2nd picture)

Phil Type 2 yellow face sky blue if the wings are brown it is also cinnamon (yellow has spread making sea foam colour)

Lil opaline cinnamon spangle violet

Hi
Thank you for this information

I now know:-

Billy – normal cobalt

Baby – opaline violet (she is a lilac colour)

Bo – recessive pied cobalt

Bruno – cinnamon sky blue

Carlos – yellow face dominant pied cobalt (although dont know if type 1 or 2)

Summer – spangle cobalt

Phil – Type 2 yellow face sky blue

Lil – opaline spangle violet Dont think she is cinnamon

The ones im still not sure are:-

Ty - his wings are yellow and blue i will post a clearer photo of him

Taylor - i will post more photos of her front

Gaby - i will post more photos of her back

will add more photos of them soon

anymore insight would be appreciated

Thanks Taz
