Default Does anyone know what mutation Ollie was?

I'm thinking cobalt, but he had a hint of violet in the right light. He was a striking colour and his personality was every bit as bright.

What mutation was he? I've linked a gallery, showing him in various lights.

Thank you, I'd often wondered. Googling for it became bewildering, didn't realise there was so much to it. Would that be single violet factor?

It would be interesting to know what parent colours he was likely to have had. Again, curious lol.

Thanks

This is my hen, Lina. I've been told that her mutation is double factor violet normal. Ollie's mutation seems to be single factor violet. But I am no expert!

If he looked Cobalt but sometimes had a Violet tint then I would guess Skyblue sf Violet. Is any particular photo the most accurate to real life?

Probably the pictures below, though he did tend to look a brighter shade when the light was in a certain way. There was a violet hue, particularly at the sides of his neck.

I'm no expert at Violets but am still thinking Violet Skyblue...

This one shows the slightly green shade on his flight feathers, which again was more apparent in some cases than others. Thanks for the help
