Default Question about Goldenface colour bleeding

I was reading about how a yellowface type II and a Goldenface and how the colour bleeds when they moult and creates a new colour.
My query was this source stated that this happens at the 3 month moult. I think skye was estimated to be older (5 months maybe...) so is it likely he's colou might change again next moult?

I'm curious really. It's interesting to see the change in him.

Well, goldenface and yellowface are tricky because generally, you're correct, they do become more apparent, but in some chicks (Personally, I've observed this in chicks who come from a long line of goldenface/yellowface II lineage) they have the "bleeding" of yellow into their feathers from when they first get their first feathers as chicks. So, it depends. Sky appears to be going to stay mostly blue, but he definitely will have some green, as you can already see on his chest and wings. It's likely that after his next moult, that's about the colour that he's going to stay

Goldenface is tricky because there's no type one or type two, so diffusion into the body colour is genetically circumstantial

Thanks. I was never really aware of this but it makes sense.
Wait and see how he looks after the next moult then.
