Default Mutation of new babies

I was wondering if anyone could possibly tell me what the mutations are of these 2 new babies that i have.

I think they are greywings but I'm really not that great at mutations yet so am probably wrong

Sorry about the pics but it was really hard to get pics to show their colouring properly so i had to put them in a small cage and take them outside so they were going kind of crazy. I also included pics of mum and dad.

Mum


Dad


Chick 1




Chick 2


They also had a Yellow face Type 1 Sky Blue Spangle

Thanks for any help guys

Craig

Thanks Lindsey would you say chick 2 in a yellow face type 2 or 1?

I know that with type 2 the yellow blends in and changes the body color (well thats what I've read anyway) but i never seem to get it right lol

The chicks will be whatever mutation of yellowface the parents are You can not get a yellowface I chick from a yellowface II parent unless the parent has both mutations, since yellowface I, yellowface II and golden face are all different mutations just like spangle, dominant pied etc. Single factor and double factors of all of the yellowface mutations look very different too you can see pics of each one if you click the link in my siggy about mutations

The dad and chick both look like sf yellowface II
