Default Killer and Mystery

I think that Killer is a Pied/Clearwing and Mystery is a yellow face 2? I'm still not 100% sure tho. Heres a couple pics, hopefully, they are good enough to tell.
They are very hard to take pictures of at this point, due to the eggs.

Killer is a dominant pied. His base colour looks grey in your signature, but can't tell in the photo. Dominant pieds have clear flight feathers. He is not a clearflight or a clearwing these are both separate mutations.

Mystery is a yellow face recessive pied sky blue. There is very little spillage of yellow on the body so the yellow face type needs to be checked by her breeding results

The camera flash will also affect what amount of yellow we see as it tends to burn it out and make it appear whiter.

But that aside, i agree wit nev.

Thank you for clearing that up for me, the genetic aspects are still a bit confusing
