We need someone like Nev or Lindsey or SOMEONE to come along and say what these beautiful birds mutations are :love:

Hey, Vicky. Let's see....I'm not the world's best, but I think I can help you out. Dark factor can be hard to determine from pics sometimes for me on this computer, but here goes:

Oddball:normal green (light green, I think)

Ollie: YF1 sky blue dominant pied

Violet: Cobalt normal (maybe with violet factor - so hard to pic up in photos)

Sunny: light green DF dominant pied

Harry: opaline sky blue dominant pied

Nala and Flash: both green series dom pied. Flash (the male) looks light green and Nala dark green, but like I said dark factor is difficult to see on my computer sometimes.

Lime: green greywing - but I can't tell if it's light or dark green.

Coconut and Elvis: cobalt opaline greywings, possibly violet factored. They could be sky blues, but my cobalt opaline greywings photograph a lot lighter than they are in person, so you will have to determine that (or someone else who is more knowledgeable than I, here onTB - which could be just about anyone :D )

Scarlett - normal green series

Iris - opaline green

Here are my guesses :)

Oddball - Normal light green male
Ollie - dominant pied yellowface I sky blue male
Violet - normal cobalt violet female
Sunny - recessive pied light green male
Harry - dominant pied opaline sky blue male
Nala - dominant pied olive female
Flash - dominant pied dark green male
There's also a baby dominant pied olive there, maybe male?
Lime - graywing or full-bodied graywing light green male
Coconut - opaline dilute sky violet female
Elvis - opaline dilute sky violet male
Scarlett - normal dark green female
Iris - opaline light green female

One thing I am certain on is Sunny is not a recessive pied. He has iris rings. So he's a DF Dom pied or maybe a combination pied (but i don't know much about those).

Good point. He's a baby then.
Well, I don't think he's a baby as his iris rings are quite light and he has no baby bars on his head. Sometimes DF dom pieds have ceres that are mottled pink/blue. If he's a combination pied that would also explain the cere. Heck, I have a sf dom pied who has a splotchy cere. :) Vicky, do you know Sunny's parentage?

Oddball- Violet light green normal (his cheek patches look too dark for a normal green, and he has the blue vent/leg feathers)
Ollie- Sky blue yellowface type 1 dominant pied.
Violet- Cobalt violet normal
Sunny- Light green opaline df dominant pied
Harry- Sky blue opaline df dominant pied
Nala- Dark green dominant pied (could be sf or df hard to tell)
Falsh- light green dominant pied (is the baby also him in the pic below? If not can we have a back pic of him he looks like he might be opaline?)
Lime- Light green violet greywing(can we get a couple more pics of him? I am torn between a violet greywing and a full body greywing he looks realy bright in that pic but I seem to remember he was much more diluted as a chick)
Coconut- Cobalt violet opaline greywing
Elvis- cobalt violet opaline greywing
Scarlett- light green violet normal (she looks like my violet greens too)
Iris- Dark green opaline

Thank you everyone.

P.s. Lindsey if you need any of the mutations for your article, feel free to use them. (if you need different photos just ask)

Thanks Vicky! I thought that pic was of Flash as the wing markings looked the same, but I wanted to couble check :) I think Lime is a light green violet greywing.

Lets see what Nev says he will be able to tell us for sure on them :)

Thanks Lindsey :hug: :urock:

If you still need any of these mutations, feel free to use them. (if you need different photos, let me know) Though I am sure you've probably got all you need now ;) Looking forward to it. :D

Oooh Yay I can definatly use some of them!! Thank you Vicky!! :D Who can I put for the credit for them?

The article I am working will have 500+ pics of as many mutations as I can get when it is all done so I hope it will be helpful :fingerx:

Hope I'm right

I'll test myself and see how many I get right.

Oddball here has violet cheek patch?

Normal Violet Light Green

Ollie is a Normal Yellowface 1 Single Factor Dominant Pied Sky Blue

Violet here also has Violet tinge to the Cobalt, so I assume she's a
Normal Violet Cobalt

Sunny...Confused on this one. Looks like a Recessive Pied, has a Pink cere but also has Iris rings.

I read somewhere that some DF Dominant Pieds can have Pink cere. Because of the Iris rings I'll say he is a
Normal Opaline Double Factor Dominant Pied Dark Green.

Harry looks like a Normal Opaline Double Factor Dominant Pied Sky Blue

Nala: Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied Dark Green
Flash: Normal Single Factor Dominant Pied Light Green


Lime could be a Greywing Light Green. Dilution mutations confuse me.

Coconut looks like a Greywing Opaline Violet Sky blue.

Elvis also looks Greywing Opaline Violet Sky Blue. Are they related? :p

Scarlett looks Normal Light Green (could be violet too?)

Iris looks Normal Opaline Light Green.

Now must compare with Lindsey's response. lol

vicky they are all beautiful i just still love oddball but ian wants to come and get Harry lol
:giggle: Harry is named after Prince Harry ;) I was hand rearing him during the Wedding last year.

Oddball has always been a favourite for us ;) As he was the odd one out of his clutch. He loves nothing more than to perch ontop of your head. :rolleyes:

Oddball – Normal light green

Ollie – Type 1 yellow face dominant pied sky blue

Violet – normal cobalt? (the cheek patches indicate that she has a grey factor but it could be just the picture). If she was violet I would expect a brighter colour even in a photo

Sunny – Double factor dominant pied light green

Harry – Double factor dominant pied sky blue (could be opaline as well)

Nala – Single factor dominant pied dark green

Flash – Single factor dominant pied light green

Lime – Greywing light green (probably has a violet factor)

Cocoanut – Opaline greywing sky blue

Elvis – Opaline greywing sky blue

Scarlett – Normal light green I think. It could be just the lighting but the yellow in the wings looks lighter than usual and the shade of green is not quite right. I wondered at first if she was a yellow face that had turned green

Iris – Opaline dark green
