Default Mauve and Grey??

Hi all, great to be back, now here I am with all my questions again...LOL
So...the parents were: Hen-Violet Cock-Red eye Lacewing these are the parents:


Now from their clutch I got 2 rel, 1 light violet, and 2 grey, one with blue cheek patches and one with grey cheek patches? Can someone explain to me are they both grey, or one mauve? Also dad was the REL so the 2 young red eyes are female correct? Thanks all, I apologize for being a pain in the rear Here are the pics of the clutch:

This is the one with the grey cheek patches:

This one blue cheek patches:

The two chicks are both grey. The different shades are because they have different dark factors, also it is possible that one of them is carrying violet which would be difficult to see on a grey. Cheek patches on a grey can be either blue or grey but a mauve would have purple cheek patches. The grey factor will have come from the lacewing. The red eyed chicks can be either sex because to get any red eyed chicks at all the cock bird must carry the gene. If a sex linked mutation comes only from the father the chicks will all be female but if it comes from both sides they can be either sex

The parents are in the first picture, the hen is violet, and the cockbird is a Red eye lacewing. Thankyou for all the compliments.
