Default Johhnys CHANGED! :S

Johnny has changed colour - he was a beautiful blue but now is a greenish/blue - I dunno colour! I hope these photo's show it - one bonus - he did not bite me AT ALL today! Yay!

The chest feathers are a lot greener than they appear here - unless it's my monitor? It's like ... there ARE *some* blue feathers, but they seem to be overlaid with a fine layer of yellow - thus making him green.

In the last pic, you can just see an area about 1 cm round that is quite blue, on his chest area. And he has this gorgeous indigo blue in his tail - but he's changed significantly!

Not that I overly mind - it's just ... odd! It's like someone swapped him for a different colour!

The reason for the change is due to him being a Yellowface type II. Type II means the yellow bleeds into the body. So your blue bird takes on a green tinge (yellow+blue=green) he is gorgeous either way
