Opaline dark green
opaline olive
yellow face opaline cobalt (looks sky blue in one picture but it's probably caused by the flash)

If the blue bird in the 3rd picture is the same as the blue bird in the 4th picture, I think he's a yellow face type 1 opaline clearflight pied sky blue. Does he have a pied spot on the back of his head?

You can double-check his "dark factor" (shade of blue) here: https://www.****************/colorsguide.html#darkfactor.

There are no dots any where around the head. Just a bunch of Baby lines.

being the bird in question is Opaline it is not always easy to see the pied "thumb print" on Opaline budgies

but what Susan is asking is does your budgie have a spot on the back of its head that looks like this



I don't have any pics of an Opaline Pied to use but that is what the marking looks like just some times it is hard to see with the Opaline Bars on the back of the head

Her head is yellow and has dabs of green at the neck.
She is acting like a female though. Bossy and taking over feeders and water.

I missed the 4th picture. The bird is an opaline clearflight pied. Every bird of a mutation does not match the mutation description exactly. The descriptions are either the average for a mutation or a show standard
