Default What mutation is this baby?

I have a clutch from a cobalt violet opaline greywing and a YF2 cobalt opaline recessive pied greywing (this bird was thought to possibly be spangle according to the wonderful Nev). All the babies are opaline and greywing. They are all lovely pastel shades of sky blue, cobalt and mauve, some recessive pied, some YF2 and all grey wing markins and opaline. This babies wing markings look different than her 8 siblings, though. But I'm not quite sure she's spangle. Her tail feathers are not clear. What is she?

On the right




On the bottom






I swear she looked like the other two opaline greywings until today. Her markings are darker than the other chicks', but are still grey. Are her wing markings different, or am I just sleep deprived?

Ah. Thanks Nev. Your reply and my reviewing my post and seeing all the typos confirms it. I am sleep deprived. So, out of 9 babies, I got no spangles. I'm gonna assume we were wrong about Bruce and say that he isn't spangle. Thanks, Nev! Always appreciate your help.
