Billy- Normal Cobalt, maybe Violet
Baby- Cobalt (or Violet?) Opaline
Ty- Yellowface 2 Opaline Greywing
Taylor- Sky Blue Yellowface 2 Opaline Clearflight Pied (or Dominant Pied)
Bruno- Normal Cobalt
Carlos- Dominant Pied Yellowface 2 Opaline
Not sure but Gaby looks like a Yellowface 2 Opaline
Summer- Spangle
Lil- Violet Cinnamon Spangle Opaline?
Phil- Cinnamon Yellowface 2
Bo- Recessive Pied Opaline

I'm certain on the mutations but I don't know about the colours, they are all Cobalts and Sky blues and violets I think...

Billy – normal cobalt

Baby – opaline cobalt (may have a violet factor)

Ty – Type 1 yellow face opaline greywing (may be violet)

Taylor – yellow face opaline dominant pied (need a front view picture to be sure of pied type which could be clearflight)

Bo – recessive pied cobalt

Bruno – cinnamon cobalt or sky blue (the cinnamon dilutes the body colour)

Gaby – Type 2 yellow face cobalt (yellow has spread making it appear green) – may have another mutation as well but need a back picture

Carlos – yellow face dominant pied cobalt

Summer – spangle cobalt (looks sky blue in 2nd picture)

Phil – Type 2 yellow face sky blue – if the wings are brown it is also cinnamon (yellow has spread making sea foam colour)

Lil – opaline cinnamon spangle violet

Hi
Thank you for this information

I now know:-

Billy – normal cobalt

Baby – opaline violet (she is a lilac colour)

Bo – recessive pied cobalt

Bruno – cinnamon sky blue

Carlos – yellow face dominant pied cobalt (although dont know if type 1 or 2)

Summer – spangle cobalt

Phil – Type 2 yellow face sky blue

Lil – opaline spangle violet Dont think she is cinnamon

The ones im still not sure are:-

Ty - his wings are yellow and blue i will post a clearer photo of him

Taylor - i will post more photos of her front

Gaby - i will post more photos of her back

will add more photos of them soon

anymore insight would be appreciated

Thanks Taz

Ty i think is a clear wing as his wings are very yellow with the cobalt. he also has a very yellow face more than any of my other yellow faces.

Gaby - type 2 yellow face cobalt spangle female

Carlos – Type 1 yellow face cobalt dominant pied spangle male

Ty – Type 1 yellow face cobalt opaline greywing male

Taylor - yellow face sky blue opaline dominant pied female



Carlos & Ty both look a very vivid blue in the new pictures, possibly their body colour is violet sky blue instead of cobalt.
If Ty was clearwing instead of greywing he'd be a rainbow
