They're beautiful, and that last picture is just charming!
You've already called the albino and lutino, so that just
leaves the blue and the green. With the caveat that I am
still learning and you shouldn't trust my opinion, I would
say the blue is an opaline sky blue, maybe cinnamon judging
from that one picture where she looks more brownish than
black, but it could be just the lighting on the one shot. I'm
also thinking female. The other is also opaline and I'd call
it a light green. I'm wondering about a grey factor in there,
too. I also say possibly male.

Now, let's wait and see what those who really know what
they're talking about say

I have no idea on mutations - (I hate that word, it sounds as though they have something wrong with them) - but they are all beautiful

Your flock is lovely.

I'm not a mutations expert, either, but I'll offer my guesses:

I think the green bird is opaline cinnamon light green violet. She's a hen.
I think the blue bird is opaline cinnamon sky blue. She's a hen.

Can you post a picture of the parents?

Susan,

Sincere question here. What is it in this
photo that makes you think violet? Where
should I be looking to see it, and what am
I looking for? Please help?

I see a blue tinge on her belly.

I'm pretty ignorant about violet, though. So stay skeptical about my assessment.

Ah, thank you. That green struck me as not
quite normal, but I couldn't quite come up
with a reason for it. I appreciate your sharing
your opinion and observations with me

Beautiful birds!!!

So you named right the lutino and the albino...

In my opinion(as both Susan and Skye already said)the blue is an opaline cinnamon sky blue and the green is opaline cinnamon...probably light green (very diluted -almost yellow -cause of the opaline and the cinnamon factor...). The violet factor probably exists as i can see on the belly feathers!

As for the variety of colors?G E N E T I C S dear Xanala!The MAGIC word!

If your normal green cock is split for cinnamon and blue...the miracle happened!Then the albino hen is also masking colors(mutation-s).Post a photo soon!
Please post a pic from both parents!
