From the looks of Moe in natural light he looks to be a normal green..lovely!
Clearfligt pied isnt a mixture but a mutation all its own like spangle etc.. :)
Beryl is a clearflight pied but he has no spot on his head. But if i remember correctly they dont all have a spot on the head and some have a band across their belly like mine :D
hope that helps. any questions just ask ;)

Hey just had a thought. Bindi could possibly be a double facot spangle, although the bodu colour is very light. was just an idea haha.
you have any idea what the parents were?

I know that clear flight peid is a single mutation name but it was suggested that she was a clear flight peid opaline ......which has confused me LOL its not hard to confuse me LOL .......... I dont know the parents at all

I agree mostly with guesses that BellaBudgie gave, except that:

Bert - could be Green / Blue ("split" for blue - note the "blue"-shade on the flights & vent area!);

Martha - agree with Spangle, but given "sea-foam" body colour in the wing-markings...could be opaline as well...any picture from behind to show the "neck-mantle"?
..given the "sea-foam" body colour she are likely Yellow-face Type2 ...not a normal green bird...

...BUT lest I forget: "These are really great looking and sized birds!...and well-taken pictures, congrats with them!"
