Smile Is Skyler a spangled?

Hi talkbudgie friends! I have asked about this in the introductions thread a few months ago but I think it would be more appopriate to ask about Skyler's mutation here.

I am sure Skyler is a spangled budgie but there are many different shades of blue like sky blue, violet, cobalt etc. I want to know which shade of blue exactly Skyler is.

Another question, I noticed that when Skyler was a baby, the black markings on her wings are more pronounced than when she is an adult. Is this true for all spangles?

I love that the second layer of Skyler's tail feathers is a dark blue, but it is hidden by a white tail feather XD

Thanks.

Yes, Skyler is indeed a spangle budgie. And I believe her colour mutation is sky blue violet. She's a real beauty!

Agreed with aluz - sky blue violet spangle! What a beautiful colour. And that third pic cracked me up!

Thanks for the compliments, really appreciate it! Skyler is a nutty little acrobat! Her feathers near her head are darker than the ones on her belly, so that's why she is a violet sky blue?
