So, Is This Mauve Or Grey?

Recommended Posts

This chick is the one that came from the Red eye lacewing dad and the violet mom, I was thinking mauve because it is not really a dark grey and the cheek patches, I just cannot tell and I don't have a grey budgie in the aviary at all...at least not a visual all grey budgie, only one hen that is a greygreen. But she is not the mom to this chick, the parents are as I said a REL cock to a violet hen??? So is this chick mauve or grey or what?

It’s hard to tell from the picture of the cheek patches, if it’s Mauve the patches should be Blue, if a Grey they are Grey. Unless the Lacewing cock is Masking Grey it should be Mauve, as you need at least one Grey to get Grey.

Here are pics of the hen and the sire, as I said he is a Red eye Lacewing, and she is a violet. From them I got a healthy beautiful clutch 2 just like Dad, REL, 1 violet like mom, one is a real light colored violet and appears to be a greywing?? and then the mauve or grey???? :wub: Most are pictured in the nestbox and mom is in there as well. The green/yellow coloring on his face is from the fresh spinach at breakfast feeding, he is not yellowface.

Can't only go by the cheek patches theory however because some definate greys still have the blue cheek patches. By body colour and cheek patches and parents it's a Mauve from me.

The cheek patch may be on the blueish side but that comes from the grey being bred from blues and the grey modifer not quite masking all the blue , but I have never seen a grey with a Violet cheek patch
