Yeah yeah, I'm terrible with mutations, but looking through some old photos had me wondering. Melvin has always had blue feathers on his rump and belly.. Many of the feathers are divided into two; one part is blue, one part is green. i haven't noticed lately because it is so dark in the winter, so I'll post some old baby photos. Has he been a blue based one this whole time?? That sneaky little boy!!
All of the photos are taken within a week since he arrived, so he is in his tiny taming cage, with exception from the two where he is in a white cage. Those are from two weeks after he arrived. Long story
It's hard to see on this photo, but he has blue feathers on his belly
Here there is blue everywhere. It really shows in direct sunlight!
Visible on his belly and rump
How he normally looks in bad, indoor lightning. You can still see his blue rump, but he looks like a normal green one.
I'm so confused right now
EDIT: plus, the blue is much harder to spot now that he is all grown up, and I don't think it's just because of the average lightning indoors
