Hi, I have two new baby budgies that are about 8 weeks old. They are siblings and their markings and colour are extremely similar to each other. The only difference is that one has a light yellow face and yellow tint on her wings whilst the other has a white face/wings and has lighter markings. I think they are clearwings but I don't know much about budgie mutations so I'd love it if someone could help me out. Thanks
P.S. Sorry I couldn't get clearer pictures because they're still adjusting to the new environment and I didn't want to take them out of their cage

I just realised I posted this in the budgie breeding forums, oops. We have no intention of ever breeding any of our budgies, my little sister and I are just nerds and love learning new things about our pets
Also I'm curious to know which budgie looks like a male? I thought they were both girls, their cere colours are almost identical.
They are lovely! Both look to be blue greywing normals. The blue looks different on each in some photos so I can't be sure what shade they are. I suspect they are cobalt violets, but they look lighter or darker depending on the photo so.....
They are gorgeous, I agree with Toni. However, from the photos you posted, it seems that you have two males. Are both their ceres purplish-pink with no hint of white? As mentioned above, more photos would really be best
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
Ok I have more photos. These babies are really hard to photograph because the lighting and my camera lens changes the contrast and colour slightly. So in real life, they have a very pastel pale blue (with a hint of grey/purple colour) plumage. In some photos they look more blue than they actually are.
This is what their markings and wing look like:
Also, these are more true to their body colour in real life:
This shows their cere colours. I think they are both male because there is a blue-ish tint around their nostrils:
