Default Cobalt or DF Skyblue?

Hi all!

I penned my hen as a SF Violet Cobalt Opaline but now I'm having some doubts if that's true or if she's DF violet skyblue. In sunlight, she looks a bit more sky blue with teal flight feathers, but then other times I'm not sure. I'll let you guys decide

Her chicks will reveal whether she's df or sf violet, but it'd be nice to get the punnet squares and all genetic predictions for my senior project done before I'm busy with the chicks.

I can only see the tints on the flights clearly in the first picture and it looks cobalt, though her body colour looks quite skyblue! Skyblue should have a teal tint, quite a green/blue rather than navy/cobalt.

It can be hard to tell in pictures and if you don't have a skyblue and cobalt to compare at first. Hopefully the chicks will tell, though you might get a bunch of maybe skyblue violets, maybe cobalts!

I agree with Toni, I also can't really tell from the pictures

Guess we'll see for sure

Thanks you guys! Yes, problem is I only have cobalt budgies and no skyblue so I can't compare them in person so well. She does look more similar in color to Echo, who is a cobalt. I guess we'll have to wait to see her chicks and hopefully they'll be clear enough...if they're all violet I'd feel pretty safe calling her df (though there's always a chance she's sf violet and passed on that trait every time in this clutch). Let's just hope for some clarity from the babies.
