Why is that? (I'm not trying to argue, I really would like to know )

the grey gene produces black tail feathers, it is just one of the effects it has.

other normal blues and greens have various shades of blue tails...

I know it is amazing. Like in the first it shows up like his checks and yellow are iridescent but they aren't. His cheeks are very dull in natural light and they are very hard to tell the color of, but in these pics, not even the wall was the right shade, which happened to my blue bird pics too. Thus, back to waiting for natural daylight, lol.

I know a lot of this is breeding and waiting to see what happens, but I am guesing since these are petshop birds, all from different places, even an hour away, that by seeing who was in the cages w/ them kind of shows me what they may have. Like the lightish dullish blue came w/ one grey. This one greyish olive did come w/ a whole lot of deep dark violets w/ opiline. The other greywing green and cobalt I am not sure as I got them from a family that no longer wanted them, but saying that I mean, I am guessing both greens are split for blue so it might be best to try my luck w/ the two greens first and the two blue's first, even if the cobalt and greywing are already kind of paired up.

W/ olives you can get some blue in the breast feathers, which is quite common, but he has no blue. My greywing green has blue in his breast feathers and tail. Also this hen is really changing daily color and shape wise, as is the blue greyish one, because I am feeding them better than the put stores did. It took me about two weeks to really see the colors on my first birds cause their diets had been bad so this hen probably will change even more as she eats better and stays here longer.

Unfortunately it is an opaline - which means using the tail to determine whether it is grey green or olive is not possible. Opaline removes the normal pattern of colour/melanin in the tail feathers. You saying it is black may be so, but my sky blue opalines who should have a turqoise blue tail also have black tails with white midlines. So all that remains is the cheek patches and the body colour, both of which look olive to me as I dont see grey cheek patches or greygreen body colour.

Breeding will tell however

hmmm, but violet is still possible. God I hate doing this w/ birds, lol. That is interesting about the Opaline characteristic. My blue bird isn't Opaline though and her tail is gray... oh well... I am going to breed her so I will find out then... still don't know who too first.
