Mom is cobalt goldenface dominant pied opaline, dad is light green split to opaline:

Please anyone give me what they can guess about these chicks! Oldest is 4 weeks...

Chick #1 "Olive" Dark green? male?




Chick #2 "Seashell" Cobalt dominant pied? male?




Chick #3 "Aloe vera" Light green dominant pied? female?



Chick #4 "Kiwi" Light green?, gender no idea



Chick #5 "Scuttle" same as mom- goldenface opaline dominant pied gender?



Chick #6 "Jewel" goldenface cobalt? (grayish blue feathers coming in)



Thanks, thanks, thanks!!

lovely babies!

So,in my opinion...

1.Looks like a normal dark green(probably split to blue) female to me!
2.Yellowface type2 dominant pied cobalt male.
3.Dominant pied light green male.
4.Normal light green female.

5.pied for sure,female...too young to be recognized fully!
6......
