Hi BudgieBud,

What about....my below guess ? =>
Opaline cobalt Blue Spangle (cock) - appear darker blue than sky;
Violet Sky Blue-Grey spangle (hen) - but body colour washed out a lot? (dilute involved?);
Opaline Grey-DarkGreen Greywing spangle (cock) - could have cinnamon, as some spangle edges appear "brown-ish"; greywing given the silver cheek patches...could there be yellow face also?; given the vivid yellow markings on the wings, neck and rump?

Do reveal the answer pse..
Enjoy them, they look stunning!

There is no secret Dries.

The mutations are obvious and most of you guys almost got all right.

Anyhow I have the advantage that I see them in person.

Here they are...

1: Sky Blue Opaline Spangle - Male

2: Grey Green Cinnamon Opaline Spangle - Female

3: Grey Spangle - Female

See, I didn't even try to venture a guess because I haven't even begun to try to figure out mutations! Now that the answers have been revealed though, I can say what I've been wanting to say all along...

They are ALL ADORABLE!!!

I'd have a really hard time trying to choose one out of those three as my favorite--I'd want them all.

Thank You!

I would love to give them to you but we are quite far.
