Default Is he cobalt?

Hello, do you agree with me that Pinko, the male budgie in the image, is cobalt?

And how old do you think he is? In my opinion, he isn't very young since he has the white iris ring, but I was hoping you could tell me how old he is, more or less.
I tried to estimate his age by myself, searching on the forum and on other websites, but I wasn't able to do it.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, Pinko is cobalt and judging from the deep infusion of color he may have a violet factor as well.
However, one of our mutations experts will know more about that particular aspect than I.

With regard to age, once a budgie has developed iris rings, it's impossible to determine their age just from appearance.
Does he have a breeder band on his ankle?

Thank you!
He doesn't have a band, unfortunately.
At what age do budgies fully develop white iris rings?
I have read that they develop them when they are 8 months old. If so, this would mean Pinko is at least 8, and that's something.

Thank you very much!
Can you help me determine my other budgies' mutations?

In the first photo there is Sole (deceased), he was greywing light green, right?

In the second photo there are Celeste and Oliva. I think Celeste is sky blue opaline, and I thought Oliva was olive green, but since she has blue cheek patches (and not violet) she might be grey-green.

In the third photo there is Ambra (deceased). Was she grey-green opaline?

In the fourth and five images there are Sunny, Stella and Sid. The first two are both light green and the third one is grey, right?

Thanks in advance! I'm sorry for all these questions but I still have a lot to learn about mutations.
