Question Does Mocha have a violet factor?

Hi everybody,
Mocha appears to be a cobalt recessive pied spangle.
Mocha's parents are a normal cobalt cock and a violet recessive pied spangle with a grey factor hen. I will provide pictures if needed
However her cheek patches are way lighter than her dad', they have this violet tint to them, and you see a bit of violet around her neck in the 2nd picture as well.
Does she have a violet factor?





Thanks in advance

Thank you both
I'm waiting for Nev to confirm once and for all. He has seen her parents and her when she was a little baby. Hopefully he'll see this thread soon

I'm going to say it again... you can ignore me if you want... BUT

Mocha has a "gorgeous" factor!

( There I said it, I feel better now... I tried not to respond to your question )

If the colour in the photo is true I think that Mocha is a violet sky blue. The colour is not dark enough for a cobalt. A violet factor on a sky blue is often mistaken for cobalt

I agree with Kay
The picture was taken in natural lighting and this is actually how she looks like when I look at her . Nev, is it even possible for her parents to produce a sky blue? Sorry for the silly question. I don't really know how the dark factor thing works
By the way, it is such a compliment to hear that you think she is gorgeous since you always seem to breed the most beautiful budgies ever
