Default What mutation?

I've just recently got into breeding budgies.

I would like to learn more about the genetics of two female budgies that I have.

Pictures attached:

P.S The almost all yellow budgie had one baby for me so far (it's 3 weeks old and soo cute and smart) and it has a clear patch on the back of its head (so I guess its split for recessive pied).

The 1st one is an opaline greywing male. He looks like he could be a type 2 yellow face blue that has gone green

The 2nd bird is a dilute female

I was thinking the first one was a female because the cere is a brownish color? So am I wrong?

I have put him/er together with another male and I always se him/her doing the feeding and that's when I was like maybe she is a he???

I am new to genetics, but the second bird could she be dilute and a recessive pied?

You can get dilute recessive pieds but your bird is just dilute

I appreciate the feedback!

How did you know the opaline greywing was a male?

I asked the store person to help me find a female and he said it was a female
