Violet Greywing
Here are some pics of what looks like a violet opaline greywing. I fluked him from a nest with 2 normal/opaline violet parents. out of 10 bubs, 2 clutches he came, the only greywing. He doesn't appear as a full bodied greywing as the violet is washed out somewhat compared to his normal nest mates.
hope you like the pics.:)

and PS: Lindsay, you are quite welcome to use these pics for your web site if you like.

Thanks guys, he looks a lot more colorful, real life. The photos never seem to do violets much justice.

I agree that he's a violet opaline greywing! He looks almost lik my Elsa, excet she doesn't have the greywing part.

Handsome bird :)

I think your handsome boy can go as FBC, because his body color is not that wash out as many diluted birds. I have noticed with all CW and GW, its super hard to get pure color as you might see in normals, so it will be always some dilution.

Yea Im thinking Opaline cobalt FBC Greywing.Not to sure on the violet..I don't see it.

He's really beautiful. I've never seen a cere that color :)

He looks like he has a little chip taken out of his beak in one of the photos. Is this common in baby birds? (My Sammy had one as well when he was housed with a dominant male chick, and they were immediately separated. His beak grew out without problems.)
