Please help me to identify the mutations of these 3 babies. I think that the first one is an Opaline (?), the second one a RP and I don't have a clue on the last one. The first two are brothers/sisters. The hen is a YF Ino/RP Grewing. (I don't know for sure who the father is, since I'm colony breeding, but I saw the hen mated with 3 different cocks: a green opaline; Green RP and a violet GF FB Greywing. The third chick's mother is a Violet Opaline. She mated with two of the previously mentioned cocks: Green Opaline and the Violet GF FB Greywing.
Sorry about the quality of the photos.

The 1st chick is opaline green
The 2nd looks more like a normal green with a pied spot than a recessive pied
The 3rd one I think is a green dilute but it will be easier to tell in another week

I don't know much about baby bird genetics yet, but I do know they're adorable!!
Thanks.

Here are some more photos of the third baby. If it is a dilute, can you tell me more about this mutation. If I'm correct it is on the same allele as greywing and clearwing??? If so then I think the violet FB Greywing have to be the father.
