I have a 8-9 week old keet that has a color patteren thats unlike any of my other birds. he looks green from far but once close he looks kinda torquoise. upon looking at his feathers the base of feathers has little yellow. rest of feather is green but on the edge, maybe about a cmm or 2 is torquoise. So even though at 1st look jrs green depenfing on lighting and angle he'll shine off the torquoise or you see hes yellow undercoat. is thrre a.mutstion name for this? I was thinking violet green as his vent area is torqoise.
His pictures are in the gallery and they really dont do him any justice. but if you look carefully some of the shots you can see the torquiose/blue edging on the feathers and in some of the shots the part the light hits has a bliish hue and in others you can see the yellow undertone. hes actually very irridecent in real life. sorry have this thread posted twice but couldnt figure out how to delete one.
