Default Trying to understand Violet Cobalt

do cobalt violet budgies get darker after molting, or lighter. Saw a young normal bird yesterday with black bars all the way to the cere and cheeks that was the darkest cobalt looking indigo coloringon body and the tail feathers were Navy to black, cere was blue. Wondering if it's cobalt or Violet cobalt or just a really Dark Cobalt, if I see him today I'll try to take some pictures, or just bring him home. Can someone share pictures of what I'm describing to help out, bern searching the Internet but becoming more confused.

Heres a sky violet



Heres a Cobalt Violet



A lot of times you can tell if they are violet by the color on their rump. It's sometimes a lot lighter than their body color. After looking closer at them, that's not just a Cobalt Violet, it's a Cobalt Grey Violet, so don't let that throw you off.

I agree she's cobalt violet normal. She's lovely!

I'm concerned about her wings, though. Looks like someone chopped off her primary flight feathers too short! I hope they aren't permanently damaged.

She is still at the petco I saw her at, was hoping it was a male... Tempting though.

All violets are Visual to a degree...

but you have Single Factor Violets... ((like she is)) Where you can tell she is a violet....

Then you have Double Factor Violets, where you can REALLY tell they are violet.
