These are my new budgies and I was wondering what their mutations are. I think the first one is a sky blue spangle with those cute little violet cheek patches. The second one is like a dilute but his tail is a pale sky blue while his body is more purple. The third picture is a photo of the 1st one's back (spangle) and the last picture is of both with the paler one's back showing and the spangle perching. I am new at the mutation stuff so I might be completely off. Sorry about some of the images quality its raining outside and very dreary. THANKS in advance!: :D

Thanks!!!!!

That was my guess but I wasn't really sure. I have kinda of settled on him being a sky blue/violet dilute if thats possible. That is what I will tell my dad who loves genetics if I don't get another answer. He will probably believe me! Thanks for confirming it about Mackay though! :)

The first one is a sky blue spangle. The second is a sky blue (probably violet) opaline greywing :)

Do they have yellow on their faces in real life or is that just the lighting in a couple of the pics? :)

First cutie is a Single Factor Spangle Skyblue .
Second Cutie is a Greywing Opaline Skyblue (most probably a Sky violet, as it looks a little darker than normal skyblue greywings, but it could be the lighting)

The opaline greywing looks cobalt, not violet, to me. The greywing mutation lightens the body colour and makes cobalt look like dark sky blue
