Hey Guys,

 

I just got 2 baby budgies and was just curious as to what color they were as well as mutations.

 

I would really appreciate it for the help.

 

Thanks!

Do any of you have a picture of a cobalt, a mauve and a violet? Ive been reading the forums but they still look a lot alike to me. Thanks!

In the Violet you may have to look at the tail feathers, that might help you.

Here is my two mauves with two cobalts. I dont't have pictures of mauves with violet factor.

Thank you, I can see the difference now that they're next to each other.

 

 

 

So i was playing with my bird this afternoon and i took it outside to get a better look at its color, I noticed that its belly looks cobalt BUT its back as well as around its neck looks violet...? You can see a noticeable difference and its tail although mostly looks dark blue theres like a bit of park purple in there.. I took pictures, I'll try to post them in a bit, hopefully what im talking about shows on the picture. ..

 

Can the violet only show on certain places? ie around neck or back?

So all in all, compared to Ailes's cobalt and cobalt violet budgie, mine looks a lot more like the cobalt violet shade.

Thoughts?

I have a hen who looks exactly the same. I thought she was a violet, but now you have me questioning myself.

seeing the non flash they appear more violet.

 

used the WBO colour guide to look closer:

I wasnt so sure on colors because Im still new to trying to identify, but I was pretty sure it was violet after seeing the pictures that Ailes posted.

 

*Nerwen* user_popup.png thank you for mentioning the WBO color guide, it made me search up on what it is and its a really good resource to have handy. I will most definitely keep this saved and use it as a reference point for the future!

 

Thank you everyone who contributed!!
