I may be wrong here and people feel free to correct me if I am, but the easiest way to tell the difference between grey budgies and mauve budgie if you do nto know the parents are the cheek patches. Your birds have blue cheek patches, so they are mauve. Your big mature grey (you can see him just in one picture) has grey cheek patches, so he is grey, not mauve.

 

I agree with the you on the others.

Yours are definitely grey. Grey cheek patches and black tail feathers.

The two disputed birds are grey not mauve.

 

A grey will have either grey or blue cheek patches and the main tail feathers will be black.

 

A mauve will have violet cheek patches and the main tail feathers will be navy blue

also because your blue birds look skyblue doesnt mean they are....as they are cinnamon you imagine their colour at least twice the actual strength of colour you are seeing due to cinnamon reducing colour...chances are pretty high they are cinnamon cobalts of which I have a few :D
