Default Sunny and Shelby - What are their Mutations?

A couple of people have asked me what mutations Sunny and Shelby are. Unfortunately, I've had to tell them that I honestly don't know...

So, I guess it's time that I ask the experts!
Could you please let me know the mutations of my little fellows! (Then I can write it down and pretend to be somewhat knowledgeable the next time I'm asked.)

Sunny:







Shelby:







Thanks!!

I know basic mutations, so I'll give it a go, but please, don't quote me! There is a 10% chance of me being correct, your little boys are hard! Well, at least I will get some practice...

Sunny: Full Body Greywing? I'm pretty sure he's greywing...
Shelby: Clearflight Pied? Or Recessive Pied? Hmm... I know he's pied!

I think Shelby is a greywing dominant pied green male. He looks very similar to my opaline greywing dominant pied male (see pic).

Both are lovely.

Thank you, Susan

I estimate them both to be ~ 10 months old.

Sunny does not have iris rings, nor does Shelby.

Sunny is a dominant pied, recessive pied, dark green. Shelby is a recessive pied either full color greywing or clearwing light green. Very bright colors.

...the feet of Shelby looks very "pink"?

Can cinnamon not be in the mix, given this....and cause the "wing-markings" in the 1 photo to look "more brown", than grey (as usually expected in greywing)?

..the cheek patches also looks violet...wouldn't such need to be "grey", if it were to be a "greywing"?

Maybe Nev will answer this one?!

..beautiful birds FaeryBee!...enjoy them!

no the cheek patches would be grey for a GREY GREEN, Not a Grey wing
