Default Purl's mutation

I have two new girls. This one is Purl. I'm guessing she's a sky blue opaline violet factored greywing. It's hard to see in the pics, but she has a small patch of purple between the bottom of her head and the top of her shoulder on either side. What do you all think?

The fourth pic was taken without a flash. Here's one of her with my grey greywing male also without a flash.

i think skyblue opaline greywing, blue birds sometimes have violet around the neck and shoulder area without actually being violet, so it is not a reliable indicator.

Thanks for the pic Patricia. Purl is more of a diluted purple/grey than sky blue, so that's why I was guessing violet factored. Thanks, everyone.
