Default What color is my bird?

I'm new to birds and have 4 budgies. I have a young guy who is a very interesting color. The avian vet I use used to breed budgies and isn't really sure what color to call him and I've contacted my local bird club who is passing my email around and trying to get an answer. Any help? Also, my yellow/green pied is in one of the pics. How do I tell the difference between a dominant pied and a clearflight? I can post more pics of him if needed. Thanks!

Clearflight has clear flight feathers and usually no markings on body, but sometimes some by the neck. Dominant pied has a belly ring like yours so he's dominant pied. The other not sure maybe greywing or dilute? Someone smarter will come along

Thanks, Teasha. I was leaning toward dominant pied, but wasn't sure. Hopefully I'll get some help on my little grey bird, too.

Your bird is a greywing grey. The yellow & green is a dominant pied

Thank you. Is a greywing grey pretty unusual?
