Hi,
We need more pictures especially of their backs and wings to be able to tell you if there are any mutations like Opaline, Spangle etc

Elvis is a normal lightgreen male split for recessive pied. His head shows a pied spot.

Pete is a lightgreen clearwing male. His cheek patches with bright violet colours indicate a clearwing and not a greywing (where cheek patches will have a hint of grey). In addition, his body colour is bright and not diluted as in greywing.

2 adorable budgies in a good home.

Okay, thanks for the help, everyone! I am so awful at mutations.

I have always loved how they are so similar.
