I'm not sure what kind of mutation she is, but she's definitely a girl :) Her cere is turning brown, meaning she's coming into condition.

Idont know either but what a beauty. I love the wing pattern. I can't wait to find out what it is.

She is just stunning! I'm sorry, I'm not very helpful when it comes to guessing mutations but she definitely looks like a girl to me.

No problem :) I think you have a yellow face budgie, but I was never good at guessing mutations in budgies.

Whatever her mutation is, she is very pretty! Someone will be a long shortly and will be able to tell you!

She is either a yellow face dilute sky blue or a yellow face cinnamon greywing sky blue. When the cinnamon gene is combined with the greywing gene the result often looks like a dilute.
In some of the pictures she looks opaline as well but with such light markings it's hard to be sure

My guess is a Spangle, Yellowface type I and a clearflight. I'm still learning about the mutations, but that is my best guess.
It's good to hear that you are learning about mutations. Here are a couple of points that might help.

If you look closely at the photos (particularly the last one) you will see that the markings are faded not narrow like a spangle would be marked. Also looking at the flight feathers you can see that they are light grey not clear white or yellow like the flight feathers of a clearflight pied. You are right about the yellow face type
