Default My babies all grown up

All my babies are now between 30 and 40 days old. Have I got the mutations right?
Bubbles (violet recessive pied) & Fonzie (sky blue dominant pied) babies:

Violet (recessive pied or dominant pied?) Gender?

Sky blue (recessive pied or dominant pied?) Gender?
Together eating


Pancake (YF sky blue spangle) & Beni (sky blue normal)

(cobalt normal male)

Bobby(df spangle white) & Nim (YF cobalt normal)

Violet (the colour of jacaranda tree flowers) spangle

YF mint green? opaline spangle male

the baby, violet spangle male?
Photos just don't do justice to the beautiful colours they are in person.
I could just sit and watch them explore all day!

Very beautiful bunch of pied and spangle babies.

I love the two in the last picture.

they are so cute! I'm not great at mutations, though. I get confused about them.

I think this one is a yellow face type 2 sky blue opaline spangle (the yellow blends with the blue and makes it look green) I'm not expert though so don't hold me to that... They're all lovely!! Are you keeping any of them?

Oh they are all SO pretty! Can I have them all?
I really know nothing about mutations, but I can help with gender a bit..
Female, Male, Male, ?, Female, Male.
That is the genders from what I can see (some of the pictures are at a weird angle, but I tried my best) I didn't include the third shot down, with two birds because they are in the first two shots.

Thanks. I would like to keep the violet pied and one of the violet spangles, probably if one is a female. My sister has chosen the little YF if my kids will part with it.

I know nothing about Mutations. I don't really care for them ither. When you say 'mutations' it makes me thing of a 1 eyed Budgie with like tentacles and all that, not a Violet or enhanced Budgie.

Though I would KILL for a Violet. Purple is my favorite color.

I want a Violet Budgie
Purple Betta
Violet Chinchilla

Thank you. They all have such individual personalities. I especially love pieds and spangles.
