From grey to something else?
BonBon's mom is a violet grey recessive pied spangle whereas his dad is violet cobalt split for recessive pied.
Initially, the verdict was that he was grey when he first fledged. Here is his picture when he was around 4 weeks old:
The cheek patches were quite grey back then:
His rump was also a dark grey:
And this is him now after going through his first moult. As you can see, huge difference in the colour of cheek patches and his rump.

So what is the verdict now? still the same?
Thank you so much in advance
