Default Nev....Mutation question

This is my Louie Bloo. I really think he is a violet..it doesn't show up really well in his pictures, but he has a lot of purple around his neck area and some running through his body.

So just wondering if I'm right or if he is a colbalt?

I think he's a single factor Violet Cobalt..Violet never really shows up in pics well, but he looks just like one of my budgies who is a single factor Violet Cobalt. But as you title says...wait for Nev to reply lol. He's the expert here, I'm just trying to learn.
Very pretty by the way!

Single factor violet often only shows as a violet hue around the neck. Sometimes if the violet is over sky blue the bird will look like a cobalt. It's very difficult to tell in a photo but I think it is a single factor violet sky blue. The violet is usually more obvious over cobalt

Dallas was always labelled at a Cobalt as well but she was also a single factor Violet sky blue like your Louie Bloo

He is so gorgeous by the way. He's got the cutest, bluest (with violet) belly!

Wow. After reading this, I think my Sully may be a violet sky blue as well...he's got that purplish hue around his neck too. You learn something new every day!

Louie Bloo is completely adorable. I want to snuggle him.

i have that same contemplation with Fuji who is Loui Boo''s twin (i'm starting to believe).
In pictures, he doesn't look as bright as he does in real life. He too has violet around his neck and between his wings at the back. so i duno know either.
Here he is:

btw Loui Boo is such a cutie in that picture maybe they were separated at birth

what do you experts think?

When i asked about how tweety and Jasmine got a grey baby on their last clutch on another forum (for all birds) , the pic i posted had Tweety and Blizzard(his grey baby) together, and I was told that Tweety had to be violet sky blue in order to get Blizzard because they could see a violet shimmer in Blizzards rump

here is the pic I posted that got my answer on how they got Blizzard (by the way jasmine is a yellow face type 2 sky blue, who has violet on her lower stomach )
