Default New Birds Need Mutation Confirmation



I have 4 new birds just out of quarantine and would like to know if my hunch on their mutations matches the consensus here.

First up is a bird I have so far called "Am I Mauve?" LOL

Don't let this sway your perception of his color, however. I think he is either YF2 Mauve, or possibly YF2 Cobalt + SF Grey among others I'm sure. Slate comes to mind again as well. I'm leaning toward Cobalt + Grey because of the primary tail feathers color being dark grey/blackish at the ends but with it also having some blue underlying in the middle and top.













I'm in the middle in this picture!!

He's very stunning...I'd love to find a grey factor around here like that.

Thank you!! If I could feel sure he actually does have a grey factor, it would make it easier to decide whether I want to use him for any kind of breeding purposes. I agree, he sure is pretty. Thanks for the compliment!

I agree with this for the most part. I think he's YF2 though because of the yellow found in his tail and the yellow cast you can see on his chest when looking at him in person. I am trying to determine is his wings have yellow in them - if they do it's VERY light and evenly distributed.

Guthwulf, or Nev? Any opinions here?

He does look like he has a grey factor but don't take my word for it I would say he is split for recessive pied though.
