Default What colours and mutations are my budgies? Please help

Hi, i know have photos to add of my beautiful birds so if anybody could let me know what colour and mutations each of them have, that would be more than great as i really do not understand mutations & genetics lol

I will put names above all pictures as I have taken more than one pic for some of my budgies

Just going to bump this up for you danakay91. It seems to have got lost. I can't help with the mutations myself but I am sure there are plenty here who can and will

Ok, let's see what I can do here. The "Chico" looks like a sky blue opaline and yellowface type II.

The budgie (close to the camera) in #2, looks like a gray factor (white based) spangle, or possibly a gray factor clearwing.

And the one next to it my best guess is a (white based) cinnamon dominant pied.

"Broody", looks like a (yellow based) spangle, or it could be an olive clearwing.

"Lemony" looks like a cinnamon grey factor (yellow based), or an olive cinnamon, (it would help if I could see the back of it's head).

"Sherbert" appears to be a dark green recessive pied (yellow based).

"Jellybean" is a sky blue opaline cinnamon yellowface type I.

"Bonbon" is either an albino (red eyes) or a double factor spangle (dark eyes). I'll let you judge that one.

I have no idea about mutations. You have gorgous budgies! It looks like you have sand paper perches- they need removing. They are awful to a budgies feet.

thanks for your replies , should i replace the perches with natural branches?
I read to cover plastic perches with sandpaper covers would branches be better?
thanks again

Sand perches are not good for budgies' feet and actually cause sores and irritation.
I would just give them a few natural perches in there and it would be perfect

Your budgies are beautiful. I really like the budgie close to the camera in picture 2. He is just like my english spangle. I lost him today. All of your flock is so pretty.
