Default budgie mutation?? yellow face.

So a while ago i realise there are 2 types yellow face blue budgies.
Im still confused which one I have.. Kirby is yellow face & blue but is starting her moult and is going greenish/blue, she has little green feathers on her back now..
so what type/mutation does that make her??
and will her wings change colour too or stay black/white..

so you cant tell that well here but she has a bit of green between her wings & near the tail and the wing feathers seem a bit more green

There are actually 3 types of yellow face budgies: Type 1, type 2 & golden face

Kirby looks like a type 1 because the yellow is quite pale but it is difficult to tell for sure until she finishes her first moult. If she is type 2 she will get a lot of green in her chest area and show a lot more yellow on her wings & back.

The yellow only spreads a little on type 1 budgies
