Default New baby!

Hello I got this new little darling today after being budgieless for the last three years

I think he's a violet dominant pied opaline spangle... am I right? The breeder did say but there was a lot to take in and I've forgotten

Congratulations on your new little friend!
You are correct on the colour mutation, your budgie is a cobalt violet dominant pied spangle opaline.

Thank you he's very sweet and only 7 weeks old so he's still got a lot of babyness about him

When there's violet factor how do you know if it's sky or cobalt?

The cobalt blue colour is overall darker when compared to the sky blue, the violet factor will intensify the colour too, making it richer.
The opaline trait will slightly dilute the overall body colour on the feathers, and by looking at your budgie, the shade of blue looks to be cobalt, which is the medium colour (one dark factor) on a white based, blue series budgie.

Thanks. Is that why his cere is a bit lighter than other males I've had?
