Does anyone have a picture of an adult Sky, Violet SF YF II?
I know it's a long shot. But, I've searched and searched and can't find an image anywhere! Since a couple of my babies have this combination I'm really curious how the violet will impact the normal seafoam/mint color you get when the yellow washes through after the baby molt.
I'm hoping it will just be a little darker - somewhere between a sky and cobalt with hints of purplish. But in art yellow and purple make brown, which doesn't sound all that pretty.
No wonder that you can't find any pictures of adult Sky Violet YF II, because of the YF II effect, when birdie is getting older, their body color wash out drastically and fast.
I used to have Cobalt GF II, so when baby was born it was identified as Cobalt YF I, after first moult YF become very vivid and baby was identified as a GF I, however, at the beginning of the show year May 2014 when I brought him to the Maryland show, judge said its def. Cobalt GF II, because the golden color starts spreading to the body and become suffusion of cobalt, yellow, green and sky - all together, like dark dark sea-greenish, but cobalt/green was dominant. At the end of the year, October 2014 I brought my birdie to Rhode Island Show and judge couldn’t see any GF anymore, and birdie ended as a Normal Olive, because golden color becomes so dominant and judge wasn't be able to see any Cobalt’s in it. That’s why it’s hard to find a true Violet Sky YFII. Sorry for long story, I hope it make sense.
This is a pic of my Jupiter. I think hes a Sky Violet Sf YF type 2. He fits your description exactly. The yellow and violet give him a brownish wash . The lighting in this particular picture is not too great but I can always take more shots of him if you'd like
Ps edit : The only reason I suspect he has Violet is because of the feathers surrounding his vent. Hes quite darker than a normal Sky YF 2 when I compare pictures.
