Ok, I'm still learning but I want to take a stab at some of these.

photo one.
both your pieds are dominant, recessives have solid black eyes.

photo 2 & 3 looks more olive to me or maybe a grey green.

Your yellowface girl is gorgeous.

Hi there Your budgies are gorgeous!

You're mostly right, there's just a few corrections I have:

Male, sky blue, dominant pied, full body greywing

Mauve or grey dominant pied-- do you have a better photo of this budgie? The cere looks very pink to me and if so he is male Also, it's hard to tell in the lighting if he is grey SF violet or mauve dominant pied.

Mauve normal SF violet, male

Dark green, dominant pied, female

The mutations for the other two are correct

StarlingWings- Im curious as to why you think the Pied Male is full body greywing?? im not sure if im just missing the obvious sign or the photo has thrown you off.

It's very easy to mix up a recessive pied with a double factor dominant pied. The thing to remember is DF dominant pieds have up to 80% pied markings (so lots of plain yellow or white) and they develop white irises. While recessive pieds will have up to 50% pied markings, and won't develop white irises.
Typically DF dominant pieds will have less black markings then a recessive pied will.

She is female and is a mauve dominant pied budgie

The pied male is FBG because his stripes are very pale to be "normal". If he was not FBG, his head barring would be black, like the barring on the other birds. His markings are much lighter, and are grey. The difference between FBG and regular greywing is that regular greywings have diluted body colors as well, and FBG budgies have no dilution in the body color, only in the dark markings. Because his shade of sky blue is of the same intensity as it would normally be but his head barring is quite light, he is a full body greywing budgie
