Default Is she violet grey, mauve, or plain grey?

This is Pigwidgeon. I am struggling to figure out what exactly her colour is (I am hoping maybe to breed her when she is older, so I'd like to know )

She has grey colouring, lighter on her chest and tummy and really dark over her tail (normal for pieds.) Her chest and tummy colour appears to be quite bluish grey, sort of inky coloured. Her darkest patch on her rump is almost graphite. Her tail feathers (that are not pied) are black from what I can tell.

Her father was a normal sky blue (I saw him) and her mother I was told "all yellow but not with red eyes." (Since she is not spangle herself, I am assuming her mum was a dark eyed clear, which would make her split for recessive pied... My favourite mutation in the whole world, which is why I am hoping to have babies from her in the future )
