Default What mutation is this baby?

Could you tell me its sex and mutation, especially body colour? Is it violet factor that makes it purple? What i have learnt about violet factor so far is that it can be seen on cobalts. ???



And this one is its sibling...

I am not entirely sure. It's a very interesting mutation.

Looks like an opaline YF (or maybe GF) cobalt greywing. Possibly violet factored. Very pretty.

I know nothing about mutations, but this has to be one of the cutest babies I've seen.

Sibling looks like a YF 2 opaline sky blue. Can you post photos of the parents?

It seems to me baby 1 has 1 dark factor and baby 2 has no dark factor. Violet factor is hard to see. If only one parent has violet factor in the single form, it will be hard to see unless on a cobalt bird. But with the cobalt baby also being greywing, violet will be hard to see. It's also difficult to see SF violet in sky blue birds. If you can post photos of the parents and maybe some of the chicks from the front where we can see the bellies, we could guess better.
