Default What is Alfie's mutation? :)

Hi to all ! Alfie is doing really well. He is going through his first molt and is looking more like an adult everyday--I have never owned a young budgie so it's really amazing to see how much he's changed!! With this molt I have noticed his face get VERY bright (much more brighter than it was when he was a baby!) and overall he has become much more vibrant in color all over. So I was wondering if you could tell me what his mutation is? I always wondered, so I thought I'd finally ask. Thanks!

He is beautiful! I would say that he is a cobalt single factor violet double factor golden face budgie.

I agree that he looks like a double factor golden face normal but am unsure about the cobalt violet. On his flight feathers it looks like there is a emerald shade, is that true to life or is it more navy?

Skyblue birds have emerald on their flights whilst cobalt have navy and I recently learned that this stays the same when violet is added. So it is possible to identify a sky df violet from a cobalt violet without just guessing from the shade of the body!

Thank you tonic! The pictures are very true to life, I don't think he has emerald on his flights but I can take more pictures later today for reference? Also I have noticed on his body he has a couple rogue feathers that are kinda sky blue-ish? Here is a pic that best shows it, I don't know if that changes anything!

So the tint on his flights is more navy than emerald/green?
