Question Help please in the mutation of this family

Goodmorning everyone,

I need help in identifiying the cock (the dad of the three chicks)

This is my first time breeding english budgies, I used to breed the normal/small one

Anyway here are the pictures

This the cock, I am not sure is he olive green or grey green, I dont know how to defferentiate between these two mutations




==
This is the hen, she is very cute, her mutation I am sure is yellow face type 2 opaline spangle sky blue...



===

and these are the three chicks
This is the oldest, I think he/she is yellow grey/olive spangle... depends on dads mutation


This the second one, he/she exactly like dad



Overall picture of the chicks




Thanks in advance for your help...
TB is the best

1) I would agree either a grey green yellow face or a olive green. I am leaning towards olive green

2) Have no clue maybe rainbow

3) green spangle

4) Yellow face olive green

Maybe

I'm not sure but your budgies are gorgeous! I would take the plastic perches out though. They're bad for birds feet. You can put in some rope, wood, and natural perches.

I notice the hen has clear flight feathers. I wonder if that factors into her mutation at all?

Your cock bird is a grey green. The way to tell the difference between a grey green & an olive is by the colour of the cheek patches (or the tail)

You are right about the hens mutation - yellow face type 2 opaline spangle sky blue. She has no other mutations showing

The first chick is a spangle grey green

The second chick is a very handsome normal grey green male

i agree with nev, greygreens have black tails and blue or grey rather than violet cheek patches.

i was wondering if the hen is golden faced as the mask seems a very deep yellow? what do you think nev?

amberlea, i am not sure what you mean by a yellow face olive or yellow face grey green? all olive and grey green have a yellow mask...?

HAHA, I am so bad at mutations.

Tonic. Whenever I see a yellow face in a bird I say yellow face

I am still new to mutations so am learning but I guess I really have not got the hang of it

that fine amberlea! it takes time.

the term yellow face is usually used for one of two varieties that cause yellow on the mask and body of blue series birds...

Thanks all for your help, really appreciated

I am happy that it turns out to be the grey factor and not the dark factor
