My two youngest babies have finally grown up and they are probably my most beautiful 2 babies by far. I think I will keep both. What are the mutations of them and of you can tell gender too? :)

Baby 1: sometimes looks like a boy and sometimes looks like a girl :-/






And baby 2: I think girl but again not sure

Okay, I'll toss my best guess from a newbie into the
arena. I'd say that the first one is a recessive pied sky
blue with a violet factor in there. Just gorgeous.

The second one I would guess to be a sky blue normal
yellow face type II. That yellow wash over the other
colors is fascinating!

Definitely two beautiful babies! I'm eager to hear what
those who know say about their mutations as well :)

I always thought Terra was 100% female, with the white around her nares ... BUT, the vet told me that he is not convinced she is a she, and that the white around the nares is NOT an indicator according to him - so will have to wait a tad longer to find out *sighs*

I wanted her to be a him - but now it's just all weird!

The second YF2 cinnamon sky blue!

Baby 1 is probably a Recessive Pied Clearwing (or a greywing too perhaps) Violet Cobalt.
Baby 2 is a Clearwing (greywing too maybe) Yellowface type 2 Skyblue.

Both look like boys to me.

Baby 1 is so adorable! I'm glad you decided to keep them. They are little treasures.

There are two older siblings the oldest one is like the Voilet factored rp but the wings are clearer and doesn't have the grey wash through it. The second oldest looks exactly the same as the other green one.

My own guess at mutations are that baby 1 is a grey wing violet factored rp and baby 2 is a yellow face type 2 opaline cinnamon sky blue but the yellow has spread making it look almost aqua.

Dies that sound correct I'm still trying to learn mutations and I'm still not quite sure on the spangle mutation.

And baby 2 has to be a girl because she is a noisy little biter who bosses all her siblings around and even pecks at mum if she gets too close.
