When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.
It would be very helpful if you'd upload the pictures as full-sized photos rather than thumbnail attachments so our experts can view them more easily.
Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.
Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.
These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.
Your birds are all beautiful! How do you select your pairs for breeding? Do you happen to use the individual cage breeding method? We have a few members here who are the best at mutations. I’m sure they’ll be along soon.
We ask all new members, regardless of experience, to please take a look at all the Stickies in each section, and some of the threads. It will help you get started on the forum, and you’ll get a feel of what we’re all about here.

I am going to try to add my comments alongside yours below. I will type in blue....

The strength of the yellow is more than I would expect with a yf2, it is much like a green would have, so I would say he is single factor golden face. The only way to get the chicks below is if he is split for dilute.
Fourth photo is of my Female - Opaline Greywing Cobalt
The body colour and cheek patches are normal strength, which is more like a clearwing than a greywing. The markings are quite grey for a clearwing, but the other option is a full bodied greywing which doesn't work out looking at the chicks. If she was fbg you would have clearwing and greywing chicks, no dilutes. So I am going to say that she is most likely a darkly marked clearwing.
I think you have the chick colours correct, other than the yellow faces being golden faces. The last one is the combination also called a rainbow!
This is assuming the Dad is the father of the chicks. If the hen laid eggs within 2 weeks of being in the cage another male from the aviary could be the father.
