Here is one of my little ones from this year. Her parents were both Df violet cobalts, with daddy being split for cinnamon



Mauve cinnamons will have a deep blue tail and lavender cheek patches, while grey cinnamons will have brown main tail feathers and blue/grey cheek patches. From what I can see in the photo, the little girl in question fits the description of a mauve to me

For some reason that is beyond me, diluted mutations seem to show the violet better than full body colored birds in photos. Every picture I have taken personally that even comes close to looking lavandar/purple like they do in person is from one of my diluted birds. Go figure
