Golden by definition means an albino.

Are you asking if it's a golden albino or a white albino? You can't tell from those photos, they are grainy, out of focus and underexposed. But if you can't see their eyes they are albino of some kind.

I'm pretty confident they are golden, all mine that are golden look the same.
