Its not that nobody WANTS to leave a comment Dries, there just are not that many on this time of dayI can't believe that no one wants to leave a comment. Please I want to know the mutations of these birds!!!
Sorry you havnt got a reply until now then I get excited to know things right away tooWrong choice of words, but this thread is more than 24 hours old and usually it doesn't take that long for someone to say something. OK, I need to take better pics of the second one. I think you are correct with the first one - the mother is a GF FB Greywing. I'm not sure about the colour of the bird - it looks green, but there is a bluish shine in it. Here is a picture.

Here is a picture of the second bird. Can you see more now?
No one has yet to tell me how you are suppose to tell the difference visually in FBC greywing and clearwing though.CC, Ccg, Ccw, Ccd - Two normal genes or one normal gene and any of the recessive genes, resulting in a normal budgie.
cgcg, cgcd - Two greywing genes or one greywing gene and a dilute gene, resulting in a greywing budgie.
cgcw - One greywing gene and one clearwing gene, resulting in a full-body-color greywing budgie.
cwcw, cwcd - Two clearwing genes or one clearwing gene and one dilute gene, resulting in a clearwing budgie.
cdcd - Two dilute genes, resulting in a dilute budgie.
They don't look like clearwings to me.
The first one is a greywing, it's cheek patches are not bright like a clearwing's (or a FBG's) would be.
Nev explained the difference is the cheek patches.No one has yet to tell me how you are suppose to tell the difference visually in FBC greywing and clearwing though.
A clearwing should have lighter wing markings than an FBG but some clearwing's markings are fairly dark and there is also variation in the shade of a greywing' markings. The markings on a greywing are usually more definite whereas a clearwing's markings are slightly faded on the edges. Also the tail of a clearwing is usually much lighter.What I get from the comment on cheek patches is that FBC greywing and clearwing are both bright which doesn't tell a difference between them.
WHITEWING SKYBLUE (LIGHT BLUE)
General body colour: rump, breast, flanks and underparts deep skyblue of an even depth of colour throughout, not less than 90% of the normal variety in depth and intensity.
Mask: white, with the throat spots completely absent or only very faintly visible greyish/white in colour. The white of the mask extending over the frontal and crown, to merge with the faintly visible undulations at the back of the head. The frontal and crown should be clear and free from all markings.
Markings: on cheeks, back of head and neck faintly visible on a white ground, all markings should be free from any intrusion of body colour. Cere: blue in cocks, brown in hens. Eyes: black with a white iris.
Cheek patches: violet. Wings: white, free from all markings Primary wing flights: grey/white. Primary tail feathers: neutral with ground or body colour suffusion. Feet and legs: blue/grey.
not to high jack the thread but I asked a similar question about one of the birds I have that I've been told might be clear wing, then told it wasn't it didn't match the description at all (to me it does)
I was reading on this site Under the WBO Color Standards section
For Clear wing it states they have NO throat spots
The one I have in Question has NO throat spots??
the wings are clear of markings, the only markings are towards the back of the wings by the birds back and on the back of the head, and they are extremely light they won't even show up in a picture
Are you talking about your recessive pied girl? If so the pied gene could me masking them... just a thought if other things about her dont match clearwing
