Default What color?

I thought I knew, but the blue wash throws me off:


They are 30 and 31 days here:



This one is 29 days (baby on the far left, shown with two of her brothers):



A clearer picture of just her, 27 days:


I can provide more recent if needed. The green babies from my other pair did not have this same blue wash.

Tonic, I wondered if they would lose the blue sheen too; it's really pretty. Even feathering out there was always that blue tint, especially with the youngest baby. It's my understanding that you can't visually tell if a green is split for blue?

Dad is a dark green (?):


Mom is a grey wing grey (?):


There were no greys or grey greens in the clutch. The blues are all cobalts I think (not 100% sure about Frosty). The first picture is Frosty; the second shows the other 6 babies. The color on Frosty's chest is left over from when I had to hand feed him after he was attacked; that's also why his head feathers look all ruffled (he still has stitches):







Nev, theoretically, would it have been possible to get mauves out of this pair (I am guessing yes)? Will the blue wash disappear after their first moult? Is the recessive pied green also olive? The youngest olive girl I am keeping; theoretically what colors could I get if she eventually paired off with an opaline sf grey?

Thank you both! I always wanted olives; they aren't too common around here.

A dark green has 1 dark factor so if your opaline greywing grey hen has 1 dark factor you would expect chicks with 0, 1 & 2 dark factors. If the hen has 2 dark factors you would only get chicks with 1 or 2 dark factors

The recessive pied looks either olive or grey green.

She won't have inherited opaline from her mother so mated to an opaline grey you'd get:
Opaline grey, blue, grey green & green hens
Normal grey, blue, grey green & green cocks

i do like that blue tint! i think many green/blue birds have blue down near the vent, it can disappear once they moult though so i always make a note of it.

can anyone else confirm this... or correct me?..
