    My new baby - mutation?

    Just hoping to get some confirmation... unsure what my new baby is! Know he is an aqua or aquaturquoise, not sure which, perhaps pallid or cinnamon, again not sure which, with a dark or violet factor. Anyone able to confirm?
    I will say that his sib was a much darker gray with no olive or purplish tones. His daddy was quite dark with olive tones. Momma was a pied, either pallid or cinnamon, and I could not see if she had any violet or dark factors, or if either parent was possibly aquaturquoise as apposed to just aqua. Tia!

    Looks like a turquoise opaline to me. What is the color of the tail? If bluish, the it's also marbled.

    Not sure yet what color the tail is. He doesnt seem to have pink on his beak and is so young still so I am guessing he isnt turquoise. His feet are more gray than pink, would that indicate either cinnamon or pallid, I wonder?

    Lovely bird. Looking at the beak and the wing feather's, It's a pallid or cinnamon. Can't tell which one of the two. And I'm almost certain it's a DD turquoise opaline cinnamon/pallid

    Given she is so young, how can you tell she is turquoise? I know the dad had an apricot brow. Thanks.

    The grey color gives it away. Only turquoise birds are grey. And only then when they receive a dark factor from both parents.
    Aqua or aqua-turquiose birds are more greenish
