Default 3 week old english budgie

HI:
I was wondering if this budgie is a spangle opaline?
Hen is a spangle light violet and male is normal green. These green feathers look like they may be darker than his.

I think it is too soon to tell what mutation this baby is. Spangle is a dominant gene so that is possible. On the other hand opaline is sex linked so the male would have to carry or show the gene.

Thank you. I'm pretty sure she is female. I have discovered that the some of the females are very vocal at an early age. I'll post a picture when she's older.

Just a spangle, no opaline there

Could be a violet green, feathers do look quite dark. Is either parent grey?
