Question Breeding For Violet

Hi Everyone,
I have a question ( Big surprise ) to pick your brains! I have a sky cock English Budgie and last season I bred him with a cinnamon grey hen, I got five babies two hens one grey and one sky blue. Now after the first molt I have noticed that the sky blue has some faint barring across her breast and a purple undertones that are visible on both hens. Now I have read that means she has some violet in her lineage from the cock or the hen? and if I breed my violet hen with the sky blue cock should I get violets? The pic of the violet Hen is washed out she is a very pretty deep purple facing camera in pic 2.

Hi Laura!

I can see the first picture but not the second, but violet does not show well in pictures so it can be harder to see than in person.

Violet is a dominant gene, so the budgie either has it or they don't Violet also comes in single factor and double factor forms, and from your description your girls are single factor violets. If they indeed are single factor violets and you pair them to a non violet bird, you would get about half single factor violet chicks

The parents are what you say they are.
The cock is not carrying a Violet factor. Need a much clearer photo of the hen to determine whether she's a violet Grey or not.

You need to modify the privacy setting of the second photo to make the photo available to us, or just right click on the photo on Facebook > select "Copy Image URL" and paste it here.

As Lindsey has mentioned above, violet must be present on one of the parents to show up in the chicks. They can't be double Factor violets, as the dad isn't carrying violet.

Sometimes Greys tend to have a darkening effect...and I could say more, but without photos, it's difficult.
