Default What colour is Perdita

I was finally able to get some good photos of my new hen Perdita. I have been told she is this colour and told she is that colour. I bought her from a privately owned local petstore. Someone had handraised her clutch and then after a few months dropped them off at the store. They were the only birds in the store and I have been drooling over her for months. Sadly she is no longer tame.

Anyhow I was told at the petstore that she is a lilac spangle, but can't find any mention or photos of that colour online. I have also been told she could either be a graywing or a whitewing violet.

So Bottomline, I am confused.
Whoops can't load from phone, so posting this message from phone and switching to computer.

Here are the best of the photos that I was able to get of Perdita. The last one which shows her wings best does not show her true colour.

From the looks of the first picture, I'd say she was probably a violet spangle. The next two pictures look more grey than violet though. I'm not sure if that's due to poor image quality or what... The last one definitely looks like a spangle to me! Because the picture's aren't too clear, I'll try and explain what spangle is: The chest, belly and rear should be coloured (violet/lilac in this case) and then the wings, tail, neck and face etc. should be a light colour, probably white or grey. That's a bad description, sorry Try typing in "violet spangle" instead of "lilac spangle" and see if you can find some pictures that look similar to Perdita. If not, tell me and I'll try and help again

She actually is more gray than violet. Will post more photos.

Here are two more photos of Perdita, this is the closest I have been able to get to her true colour so far. May try natural light next to see if that is any better.

That is ok, everyone has been getting confused about that. They all want to say she is more violet than gray.

Default Here are her siblings

Perdita's brother and sister are still for sale at the petstore. They would take $25 for each one.

Ok, so there's definitely some violet in there... It's like my Boo, he's grey in person, but he appears blue in photos! She may be dilute violet, so a very pale, dull violet (which would appear grey). But, dilute violet spangle budgies is a bit of a mouthful, so you may not find any photos on the internet! Here's a photo of a dilute violet budgie: https://i28.tinypic.com/jiolkg.jpg Now just imagine that colour, but spangle... Does that look about right?
