Question Mauve or Cobalt?

I'm not very familiar with mutations yet but I think she's
Normal Cobalt with grey factor


Does that seem correct? There's also the possibility of being mauve.
I would appreciate everyone's opinions, thanks!

Thank you, I'm sure you know better than me! I just wanted to make sure. I wasn't disagreeing with you. I also just wanted to post this in the correct spot.
Thanks again I do appreciate you taking the time to answer.

I was told by someone (don't remember exactly who it was on here) that grey factor changes the color of the cheek patches and your bird's look normal, so I'd go with mauve as well.

Alright, perfect! Thank you everyone.

I thought that the grey factor changed the main body color that's why I was mistaking the cobalt. Now I see the difference.I do appreciate all your help. I must read and reread some more. Maybe I'll remember all the differences sooner or later!

The way to tell a mauve from a grey is by the cheek patches and the tail

A mauve will have violet cheek patches and a dark navy blue tail

A grey will have blue, silver or grey cheek patches and a black tail
