Default My boy Garfunkel

I'm really bad at color guessing and mutation stuff. So if someone could let me know what color they think Garfunkel is I'd appreciate it. He looks much more "purple" than these pictures turned out. I only have my iPhone to take the pictures.

Your budgie boy is gorgeous, from the pics Garfunkel seems to be too dark in colour to be a cobalt budgie. I think he is a mauve normal budgie.

Thank you both for the info. Since I have a vote for Mauve and a vote for Cobalt DF Violet, I'm gonna go with CuteLittleBirdies. (no offense aluz) He is more purple than the pictures show and I was hoping he was a Violet so That's what I'll go with! Love me some PURPLE!

YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

I have had many cobalt violets over the years, and it is so very annoying how it does not show in pictures

They do look quite different than a normal cobalt would in comparison though, and after taking so many pictures of them it gets easier to spot the violet even when you can't fully see it
