Default Do I have my mutations right?

Hey!
I've got three little sweethearts (it started out as one...I think I'm collecting them now!!! I love it but I'm not sure if my parents feel the same way!) Anyways I've done some reading on mutations and I just want to make sure I've got my birds indentified right! The first two are pretty straight forward.

So, according to my research

Mr.Darcy is a greyfactor

Pip is a green opaline

This is where things get tricky.

I THINK Pixel is a opaline, dominant pied, yellowface typeII (when she was younger her yellow was just on her face and tail, but after her first molt it spread and now her whole body has a yellowish cream colour)

Anyways if you could let me know if I'm right (or correct me if I'm wrong!!) I'd be so grateful!
Thanks so much for your help!

I would say the last one is double factor dominant pied, cobalt, yellow face 2. Not sure about any opaline. The little patch of black wing markings at the top looks like what I've seen on many other df dominant pieds.

You may be right about her being a double factor. I posted a couple more pictures, you can see her back in one. Its not the best picture (shes very camera shy) but it may help with indentification! I do think shes an opaline though, her striping pattern is reversed so that her cream coloured bars are thicker then the black. Thanks for commenting! Oh, and ignore her pink tail! She has a mineral perch! hehe!

And to everyone else thanks for complementing my birds! They'll all be very happy to hear your kind words!

Mr Darcy is a normal grey

Pip is an opaline light green

Pixel is a Type 1 yellow face opaline dominant pied sky blue. I think the yellow face is type 1 because a type 2 would be more yellow than this bird. The yellow usually spreads a little on a type 1 though it is not permitted in show birds. The dominant pied could be double factor but sometimes a single factor can have similar markings. She is very beautiful

Thanks so much nev! That makes sense, alot of the yellowface type 2's I have seen were alot more yellow. She is beautiful. Thats what made me fall for her! I love the black markings on her wings, they're surrounded by a very pale blue. It reminds me of a watercolour painting. Karma for you!
