Default Would anyone be able to tell me

Hi,
I've been a budgie owner for 5 months now and would like to put a definate mutation label on my birdies! I have looked around and know that Lulu is a violet (?) pied of some description, but can't say which one for sure. Also know that Blu is a yellow face...but what exactly is his colouring (cobalt/skyblue/etc)

Here is gorgeous Lulu:




Blu:


And the happy couple together...


And my 1st tiel Rudy checking them out...

Oh and it might help to tell you that Lulu hasn't got iris rings and I know that she is now over 6 months of age (they were 2-3 months when I bought them and I've had them for 5 months) Blu got his iris rings after about 2 months with me...

Thank you so much for any help you can give me.

Lulu is a Cobalt Recessive pied ~She looks Violet Cobalt in the first pic but not so much Violet in the 2nd~ -she will never have Iris rings because she is recessive pied
Blu is a yellow face type 2 sky blue

Thank you so much ATVchick! Yay I have mutations now =] and yes Budgieboy they have a big huge aviary (bigger than my bedroom) all to themselves...it has an inside room, and a bigger outside area that is perspexed on most sides (like flaps though on one area so that if its cool like now, they are left down but summer they go up) and it can be divided into one outside section/ outside and inside section. It also has trees growing in it and a bathing area. They are SPOILT!

I agree with ATV on LuLu a cobalt blue recessive pied. For Blu though I lean more to a yellow face type 1 sky blue

Lulu is a Recessive Pied Violet and Blue is a single factor Yellowface Mutant 1 Sky Blue.

blu is sea green not Normal sky blue - in order for it to be sea green he has to be a type 2 yellow face that is what makes a sky blue bird turn sea green

Blu is as I said it is. I have used the correct terminolgy. I am not sure if you are aware but there are three Yellowface mutations and they are in single and double factor form. They should not be (although the reference stills persists) referred to as Type 1 or Type 2. The designation of the word "Type" is used when referring to Dark Green split Blue linkage.

The word 'sea green' is not a correct name designation for any of the Yellowface mutations. It can be used as a way to describe the resultant colour.

If you look closely all Yellowface mutants will change the blue colouration to some degree. They have to. In order to understand Yellowfaces the first step to take is to stop thinking of them as blue birds with yellowfaces. They are green birds with reduced psittacine (yellow) pigment. It is the quantity of psittacine pigment which has mutated. The more that is lost the more blue the bird becomes.
