I have read a few of the colouring topics on colours for beginners,the great YFsymposium etc and at this early stage find it all a bit to hard to digest so as I know the colours of the parents can someone help me by naming exactly what colour the babies are: I got the hen and cock from an aviary with all green varieties and blue budgies.

Hen-light green, has blue tail

Cock-YF Cobalt, has blue tail

All the babies have purple cheek patches and blue tails

Here are some pics

Budgie 1(green one) is he a YF Cobalt as cock is?

 

Budgie 2-is this a Cobalt? have found over the weeks that he has purply tinge around his neck and above his tail

Not necessarily S_C. Depends what the parents were. If both were green/blue then there is a chance that the green babies could have 2 green genes.

Actually, the green ones are split for blue OR yf2. The yf2 cock must be single factor, to have produced blue chicks. so he could have given either one to the green chicks. You won't know unless you breed them when they grow up.
