Hi there!

I'm by no means an expert at mutations, but I will give a guess at what her mutation is:
Sky blue YF2 opaline spangle greywing.

Don't quote me on that though.

its bit tricky... but i think skyblue, recessive pied, yellow face type 1 (YF1), and probably dilute or clearwing.

it will be interesting to see what others think.

I agree it is a tricky one. Toni's answer is about what I would guess except that I think it would be greywing not clearwing. There is a small splash of colour high on her chest which could mean that her pied type could be double factor dominant pied or a combination of 2 pied types. Because of the dilute or greywing mutation it is hard to see what other mutations are there

I'll try to take more tomorrow. Everytime I take a picture with flash on it has a orangish cast to it because of the lamp in the room.
