Default What is my new budgie, Bindi? :)

Hi there!
Earlier today I brought home two beautiful females for my boys, Casper & Chip.
I've just noticed that Bindi is violet & not cobalt - I couldn't actually tell beforehand! The stripes on her head and markings on her wing/tail feathers are also really lightly coloured. So I was just wondering what her mutations were?
I've attached a photo below:

Oh, & they're settling in really well.
I've moved them all into a very comfortable aviary (under shelter), with lots of toys.
Chip and Casper seem pretty relieved to be spending time with other birdies!

Hi Georgia, Your Bindi looks to be a "violet opaline greywing", I have a bird similar with some photos in a previous thread -

Budgie can never be only violet.
Violet is a color adding factor.
She looks like she is a cobalt violet opaline greywing.

She is a stunner

but its always better to keep the birds separated for 4-6 weeks before
adding them to your original flock, because birds can mask that they are ill.
But because you already have them together, keep an eye on them.

I know I initially had them in a separate cage, as I was going to quarantine them, but my mum got angry and said it was "silly". Apparently she's sick of having birds inside! I'll still be bringing them inside when the weathers yucky though.

She looks like a beautiful cobalt-violet opaline full body color greywing! ^^ Her body color is way too vibrant for just a normal greywing.

Hi Lindsey, I'm not very experinced with the dilute varieties so..... would I be right in thinking that full body greywings usually have stronger cheek patches? I always pictured them as maybe lighter than normal but defintely a violet rather than a pale blue?
