Default Color Identification

Any ideas on the color varities of my birds?

I think Blueberry is probably a sky blue opaline graywing like Azul.

Blueberry: Sky blue greywing opaline
Java: Dark green normal
Angel: sky blue opaline normal
Taffy: Dark green normal/grey green normal Could it be a halfsider?! (Post a better picture)
Cisco: opaline sky blue yellowface type 2
Lime: light green greywing opaline
I am a beginner, but I'm getting really quite good at this. I don't guarantee these answers, but I'm pretty sure most of them are right. BUT you do have some pretty hard birds.

Your welcome! I will look at the new pics when they are up.

Aww thanks! I'm sure Lindsey (cutelilbirdies) would love to hear that. She's my bird's parents' owner.
I am getting her when she is eight weeks old, or earlier if she happens to wean early. She is three weeks old right now! Such a cutie!

Blueberry – Greywing sky blue cock (not opaline from what you can see)
Java – Normal light green
Angel – Opaline sky blue hen
Taffy – Normal olive hen
Cisco – Mutant type 2 yellow face opaline sky blue cock
Lime – Greywing light green cock (not opaline, the cheek patches look slightly lilac so he could be cinnamon as well)

Next up is Lime.

He does have violet cheek patches and they are darker than what is showing up in the pictures.

Here is my other new bird, this is Skye.

What I find unique about her is that part of her stripes are blue and part are gray, she also has blue on her chest with a tint of green.

Skye is a beauty, but are you aware she has scaly face mites?
