I believe that you are correct with the last two.

The all yellow one with red eyes looks like it could be a Lutino, which means that it looks female. The one you believe to be DEC, if it is, then I would presume it to be male.

I'm sure someone with more experience will come along, but I believe that is correct. Better pictures would have certainly helped.

the one you think is a female (the light blue one) i also think is female, i would say she is oapline and maybe spangled to (but im not 100%sure on the spangled). also does she have a yellow face? maybe its just my eyes, but that could be yellow faced aswell. very pretty bird.

the pied, i think is dominant and a male- does he have a yellow head/face? if so he could be yellow face aswell.

the first two are hard for me im still learning, but the first could be Lutino as Becca said
and the second i have no idea except that it has a yellow face witch could mean yellow faced.
dont take my word for it though as im still learning! hope someone with more experiance is around soon to let you know
i love the blue female she is just beautiful! wish i could find one as pretty as her for my opaline boy.

1/ Lutino – (picture not clear enough to tell the sex)

2/ Are it’s eyes red or black? If it has red eyes it is a creamino. If it’s eyes are black it could be a yellow face dark eyed clear but dark eyed clears do not often appear unless they are deliberately bred so it is more likely to be a young yellow face double factor spangle. I think it is female

3/ Yellow face opaline greywing sky blue female

4/ (Yellow face?) Dominant pied sky blue male. The dominant pied is most likely double factor

eyes are black on number 2 which is why i was thinking DEC. These birds are supposed to be of breeding age, but i cant really tell.

I was going to Pair up Number 1, 2 and 3 and 4 Do you think that would be a good match?

Well, how long have you had them? And ask long as they are of breeding age, and the correct sexes of course, it sounds fine. Is there any particular mutation you were looking for?

If the lutino is male all his daughters will be either lutino or albino regardless of the mutation of his mate. If the lutino is male half of the male chicks would be clearflight pied if No 2 is a dark eyed clear, but if she is a double factor spangle the males would all be spangle

No 3 & 4 paired together should produce some nice pieds and yellow faced chicks but probably not quite like the hen
