I need help with their color mutations, please.

Number 1 (on left) and Number 2 (on right):
This might not be too visible in my picture, but Number 2 has slightly yellow face.



Number 1 Back (dark markings are light brown, not black)


Number 2 Back:


Thanks.

Number one looks like a female Mauve Recessive Pied Cinnamon, possibly Yellowface?
Number two is a male Sky Blue Yellowface 2 Cinnamon Opaline Greywing.
Very lovely birds by the way, I love their colouring!

Would need a better picture of No 1 to be sure but I think she is a sky blue dominant pied but there could be another mutation there as well (possibly cinnamon). Does she have a yellow face?

No 2 is a yellow face opaline greywing sky blue

#1 Is a sky blue yellow face type 2 dominant pied cinnamon and it has a pied spot meaning that this bird is carrting recessive pied.

#2 Is a sky blue yellow face type 2 opaline either cinnamon or grey wing I can't tell

Unfortunately, there will be a slight delay in posting more pics because PhotoBucket is doing a maintenance right now, so I will try later.

Yes, Julea, my new babies :)
As soon as I can upload more pics, I will introduce them to TB and hopefully they will have names by then. I am so undecided yet.

they are very pretty, id gess at the mutations but they look complicated so id probly get it wrong!
Thank you for the compliment on my snowbabies. :)

You are not alone. When I saw those long names for their mutations, I thought to myself that no wonder I could not get them. I did not even try, but I probably should, because now when I look at them it makes sense.

She is dominant pied cinnamon sky blue.
Her pied type is definately dominant and as all pieds have a clear spot on their heads her spot does not indicate anything else
