Default Mauve, Cobalt Violet or....

This is a friend of mines bird. She's in a moult, so not looking her best. I'm just curious on the color. He thought mauve, violet, SF YF II, SF spangle. Would you guys agree? It's the body color I find a bit confusing. TYIA!!

She looks like my new chicks, actually. I would say mauve and violet cobalt are really hard to tell apart in a photo. The yellow factor appears in the wings as well as the face. Again like mine. I'm still learning....she's a beautiful hen!

Thank you heard! At least I'm not the only one unsure. I'm pretty good at genetics on paper now, but recognising what I'm seeing is still confusing me, obviously!

I'd say Mauve, I don't see any Violet but it may just be the photo.

Thanks guys! I ended up buying her and she's much prettier in person. I agree, no violet, I think I misunderstood that. She's definitely a dark greenish blue. So probably mauve mixed with the yellow. I'll try to get better pictures in natural light, if it ever stops raining!

ETA, checked Lindsey's page and now almost certain she's mauve. I have a sky spangle opaline male I'll pair her with so I can get cobalts. I think that's much more striking with the SF YF.
