Default What is he?

Can we tell for sure what Snow is yet? Mutation? I assuming he's still a he?







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.

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