Cobalt is only a bit darker than sky blue. A mauve is a very dark blue .

The following pics are so you can compare:

The first pic is of a YF2 Skyblue Dominant pied Opaline Greywing, The second pic is of a Cobalt Opaline, and the third pic is of a Mauve Dominant Pied (The Cobalt and the Mauve are brother/sister)

Skyblue


Cobalt Blue


Mauve Blue

Colours often look different in different photos or on different computers.

Here's a link to the World Budgerigar Organisation colours guide

Thank you both for your responses.

Prettybird, your second bird looks to me like a sky blue and your third bird looks to me like a cobalt. (All three birds are gorgeous, by the way!)

I'm convinced my pictured Mr. Blue is sky blue and three of the four pictured babies are cobalt. Right?
