You mentioned C as male and then female. (typing error, I guess).

You got some mutations right. :)

A - Olive Green Male
B- Grey Cinnamon Female
C- Light Green Opaline- Male
D- Sky blue Opaline - FEMALE - Just because it was born in 09 doesn't Make it a male - the cere would be Extremely dark blue if it was a male and its not its mainly white with light blue - I have one that I got as an Adult in 07(4 yrs ago) her cere has never changed from white with light blue and she's Female. Reason being (not sure but it is what makes sense) her reproductive system is messed up because Mine has NEVER laid eggs, and won't even allow another bird near her she doesn't let them preen her, feed her nothing, She wants left alone by all other birds

What I meant was that initially due to cere color, we also though that she was young.

She seems friendly with others though.

Don't you think that "A" is Grey Green male due to grey cheek patches?

Don't worry. For everyone, mutations are hard to learn in the beginning.

Cheek patches look Violet to me not Grey/silver

This is my Grey Green - as you can see the Patches are Grey-Silver




and the body is not so Olive looking like yours is.

oh and Also Sometimes the bands aren't correct- I got a English Budgie from a bird fair with a band on - According to the band the bird is 16 yrs old! and I highly Doubt he's 16 years old! - The breeder used old bands on the bird and now All I know is he's an Adult not his actual age :/

Would you please check out "Nev's" comments regarding the same topic (Grey Green) in this thread.

You are right about bands. I have heard it from other people too.
