Default Mutation identification help please!

Hi everyone and budgie experts!!
I welcomed these two budgie boys into my home recently and would like your help in identifying their mutations.
Harold is the bright blue one and is more than a year old. Conan is the seafoam green one and is about 3 months old. His wings have a little bit of yellow in them.
Thanks!!

Hi there! Beautiful budgies you have

Harold is a normal Cobalt Blue budgie, and Conan is a Sky Blue, Yellowface II, Greywing.

I agree with Michelle, only I think Harold is a sky blue normal budgie Do you have any more photos of him taken in natural light?

Harold and Conan are beautiful. The two members above are a couple of our mutations “go to” people . I love how your boys really complement each other’s color!

I'd personally say Harold is a skyblue budgie, and that Conan is skyblue with SF yellowface I (or DF yellowface II) and greywing. :'D

As an aside, it's very unlikely that Conan is 3 months old, as he has the cere and head markings of a mature budgie (6+ months).

Conan looks to be seafoam green which is why Michelle and I think he's YF II

Ahh I see, I do think it's hard to tell from the lighting. To me, his body colour appears as the regular diluted skyblue you would expect from a greywing budgie, especially in the second pic. :3

Hi all, I'm going to be different and go with a skyblue normal and a skyblue tf2 texas clearbody!

If he is a clearbody then the body colour hsould be very diluted and the markings should be almost normal black on his head and top of wings but then fade down to pale grey on the flights.

Can you confirm what his markings look like, maybe a photo in natural light?

Default Thanks everyone!

Wow you guys, less than a day and I got so many helpful replies. Thanks, knew I could count on this great forum.
Here are some more photos I have. Unfortunately I don't think I have a photo of Conan (my yellowface type II) in natural light. But if I remember correctly this photo of Harold (blue) is in natural light.
Looking forward to solving the mystery of my birds' mutation! Sky blue or cobalt? Greywing or texas clearbody? Hmm.

Harold is skyblue

As for Conan, I see where Toni is going but I don't think that he is TCB because his barring isn't that dark and his front is not very dilute compared to the rest of his body colour. Overall he's relatively consistent in dilution which makes me think greywing
