I have other pics if you need different angles.... what colour is his belly classified as? It looks a grey-blue to me... What does mauve look like? And, one more thing, do you think his head will stay white?

Thanks!

I'm horrible at this but I'd almost guess female because of the slight white I see by his nostrils.

in the 1st pic looks female, but the others look male
He /she is a grey recessive pied May be considered mauve instead of grey ( i know the camera changes colors at times) if in person his/her color looks more of a blue grey Then it's Mauve, if it looks normal grey (smokey grey) then its grey

Recessive pied males DO NOT get blue ceres they will stay Pink, Females still get the normal - white/tan/chocolate brown ceres

also recessive pieds do not get iris rings they're eyes stay dark all their lives

Also 1st pic i can tell he/she is going through a molt, and from the bars on its head I'd say his/her 1st molt So she/he is around 4 months old

I would lean more towards mauve. That coloring is very similar to tinkerbell's and she was mauve.
I would also guess male, though the first pic does suggest female the other two look male. time will tell :)

Awww awesome, I think he is mauve. To the eye, it definitely looks blue grey not smokey grey.

Maybe this pic will help? Taken a few moments ago in full sunlight. :D

I would definately say mauve. He/she is gorgeous! That picture looks female too though. I will have to conclude unknown on it's sex :S

atvchick95 11-07-2008 11:03 PM

what color are the cheek patches? they look silver /grey to me but it could also be my monitor ..

Beautiful bird :) In person, is the cere tan or pinky purple? I am seeing both dependant on the pic so which is it?

starsie 11-07-2008 11:09 PM

I'd still say pinky purple, but it is getting darker since he's started going through his first moult.

She looks identical to my Mika, so i would say mauve recessive pied and obviously female, here is Mika for what it is worth:
