Finally got close ups - what is Smith?
Smith is a bit of a conundrum. I've never quite gotten a 100% answer on his mutation, aside from the yellowface part. I thought part of it was that his pictures always turn out a bit funny, but after getting a close up of his feathers, I've realized it's actually his feathers that are a bit funny.

He's green and blue at the same time? Can that happen?

I've also decided to make a website for the birds in case I end up breeding them in the future, and wanted to double check their mutations.

First is Aphrodite
I think she's just a normal albino. She does have red eyes, but they don't show up well in pictures. I'm also wondering what age she looks to be? I'm not sure it's possible to tell at all though.
White birds don't stay white long - that is green poop on her wing.

Next is Wesson who I think is a sky blue split to pied.

And lastly is the terrifying Sokar who I think is just a normal lutino mixed with a bit of evil.
She also has red eyes that for some reason do show up in some pictures:
Definitely some evil mixed in there.

What beautiful birds! I understand that
split to evil part. I think I have one too :)

As far as Smith is concerned, I think (emphasis
on that 'think' part) he might be a yellowface
mauve. He looks mauve or grey in the pictures
on my monitor, with those really dark cheek patches.
The yellowface type II will bleed down into other
feathers, affecting their color, so I think that's
why you have that greenish cast to some of his

Let's see what those who really know what they're
talking about say regarding his color, but whatever
it is, he is certainly a handsome bird!

I can't help with Smith's mutation but wanted to tell you that every one of your birds are gorgeous (split to :evil: or not!).

Those are some pretty birds you've got there! :) Smith looks like a double factor yellowface II mauve.
