Default Mutation?

First of all I have to say how smart you all are for being able to figure these birds mutations... I have read and read and I still can't keep it all straight! So here goes.

Can someone help with the blue bird in the first photo and also in the second. The first blue has a very light yellow face that the photo doesn't project. A speckled blue and white body with white tail.

the second blue bird I am thinking a pied of some sort since he has a white patch around the back of his neck, a very pretty blue on his belly with white feathers underneath, blue tail. but I am not sure I have the pied thing right!

I don't want to leave out the pretty green bird, but I think she is just a normal green. Sweet bird too, she lets me pet her now

Thanks for all your help!

I'm not a mutations expert, but I'll make some educated guesses until the experts come along ...

The blue and white one is a yellow face type 1 opaline dominant pied cobalt hen.

The green one is a normal dark green hen.

The blue one is an opaline sky blue violet cock bird. We need to see pictures of his belly, back, wings and tail (full body shots) to determine whether he's dominant pied or clearflight pied (I'm guessing clearflight).

Okay first one is Jewel, the yellowface hen. She is starting her first molt. Surprisingly not crabby and letting me pet her and handle her more!

Second and third are Petey, the blue cock. He is hand tamed and the sweetest thing ever!

Thanks for your input! Love genetics
