Default T.Bow's Mutation Question

I just want to be sure of his mutation. Anyone want to give it a go?

The bad quality pictures are accurate on his color. Really bright yellow face, grey on the front but blue on his rump and the yellowface gives him a greenish tint as well. His cheek patches are a steelish blue color or violet blue, I'm not sure how to describe that.

I'm thinking he is a yellowface greywing but I'm not sure of what shade of blue he is or if he has a grey factor or not.

He looks like a yellow face cinnamon cobalt. If he had a grey factor his cheek patches wouldn't be purple

Cinnamon? his wings look more like grey to me rather than brown but I know there's variations of cinnamon. How do I tell the difference?

I also thought he could be mauve since he really looks grey especially on his chest and my cobalts look a lot different but I'm not even sure if my "cobalts" are cobalts anyway

i think cinnamon too, the wings look brownish grey in the pictures. can you see whether his tail has a brownish quill?

cinnamon softens the body colour so it would look a little different to a normal cobalt.

maybe more photos would help if you think the wings are not as brown as they appear...

Well I'll try and get more photos. I don't have a camera so cell phone photos will have to do

Right now I think he is a yellowface type 2 greywing cobalt. I've read that full body greywings have a softer looking color as well. I still see no brown.

hi again,

full body greywings have the full body colour rather than the lightened shade of a greywing.

it must be the photo that is making the markings look brownish grey rather than the usual grey of a greywing then. sometimes they look very different in real life!

Yellowface cinnamon cobalt. You can tell its cinnamon because of the uneven melanin distribution on the wings - some look darker than others and it gives a patchy appearance that can often be seen in cinnamons.

Greywings, clearwings and FBC greywings have very uniform/solid wing colourations.

Thanks for this info, Dean. Knowing how to see this difference helps a lot to get the correct mutation.

Wow thanks Dean! I didn't know that and it makes perfect sense
