I believe Your grey male is a type 1 yellow face
Type 2 yellow face bleeds into the body color for example turning a Sky blue budgie sea green
there is no bleeding into the body color the yellow is strictly on the mask(face) which is how a type 1 yellow face is.

and he looks mauve as well - Grey budgies have Grey/silver Cheek patches Mauves have blue cheek patches and their tail is blue

His father was a type two that's why his grey is so dark. You can't see it in the photo but he has flecks of yellow through his body, wings and tail.
yes that is normal in a type one

Yellowface budgies are in between yellow-based budgies and white-based budgies. There are different degrees of the level of yellow pigment, less than the yellow-based variety. These different levels of yellow pigment are caused by several different genes. Visually, there are two types of yellow face: Type I and Type II. In type I yellowface budgies, the mask feathers are all yellow. The yellow may also show up in the peripheral tail feathers. The yellow is confined to these areas only and the budgie is normally colored in the body feathers. Type II yellowface budgies have yellow in the mask feathers and tail, just like the type I. However, after the first molt at 3 months of age, the yellow diffuses into the body color and creates a new color, depending on the original color. In the case of the sky blue variety, as seen below, the type II yellowface creates a seafoam green color, but in the type I yellowface the body color remains sky blue.
While the yellow is restricted to the mask only in the single factor form of mutant 1 the reverse seems to happen in the mutant 2 and the Goldenface. These two mutations when present in the single factor the yellow seems to spread throughout the blue body colour after its first moult giving it a sea green effect. The identification becomes even more difficult when the bird is grey giving the appearance of grey green. Only by seeing the yellow underneath the wings one can establish that the bird is in fact a Yellowface or Goldenface.
if yours was a type 2 he'd look like a Grey green like this one


Also he looks Mauve not Grey
Grey budgies have Grey- silver Cheek patches


Mauve's have Blue Cheek Patches

Ok sorry I haven't gotten back to answering questions about the pairings. I have been busy with lots of chicks and my last years of college so please forgive me. I'm glad a couple people posted pairs so thanks guys. I'm not an expert on mutations so if I'm wrong please anyone correct me. This is a learning process. I will get to all of the breeding pairs tomorrow. It seems that my computer is having issues with enlarging the images.

Thank you! That is wonderful that you have babies to raise! I'm guessing in 2-3 months I might have some cute little chicks. I'm trying my best to get mature pairs to like veggies and eggfood before I put a nest box up for any of them. I just noticed one of my mature females, Stormy, is coming back into condition which is great. I took a look at your website and I loved it. I saved it as one of my website favorites. :) I look forward to hearing what color babies I might get plus getting to learn more about possible outcomes of different color pairings.
