Question Yellow Tail Feathers

We have six baby birds, and both parents are blue budgies. Today we were handling the babies and the 2nd chick has developed yellow tail feathers!! Will this little guy be yellow and blue?

He is so cute, but I can't tell yet. By the way, neither of the parents have a blue mutation. They are violet (mom) and sky blue (dad). I am pretty sure about mom, but I am not 100% sure about dad. I know he is not standard blue. Good luck!

Mom has the violet factor, but since violet is only a color adding factor she is still blue. Dad is a sky blue and I don't think he's a violet. Thanks for your help.

Do you know what the parents of the adults looked like? (the grandparents of your babies) Sometimes colors can skip a generation... what a nice surprise!!

That looks like his tail is dirty to me, lots of my young chicks have yellow looking feathers at the ends, give it a couple more days to see the true colour.

I agree with Amelia it looks like the feathers are slightly stained.

The only way a pair of white face birds could produce a chick with yellow feathers would be if one of the parents was a double factor mutant type one yellow face. If this was the case all the chicks would show the yellow.

That's interesting, baby 1 has also developed yellow tail feathers too. Maybe it's just a stain on both.

the feathers are stained most likely due to a dirty nest box
