Got this little boy last night, somebody has said spangle and somebody else has also mentioned opaline? So what would that make him a blue spangled opaline?!







Thanks alot

I can't see the first and third photo but from the second photo your bird looks like a opaline spangled. The body color is blue but it might also be single factor grey of violet.

Opaline spangle sky blue violet. She's beautiful! Absolutely gorgeous! One of my favorite mutations of all time!

Thanks, the pic is without flash, Ill try and get another few today infront a window though its really miserable weather so dont expect they will be any better. He does seem to have a few darker areas that look violet coloured if that makes a difference.

Somebody said 'she' aswell, I thought he was a boy?!

Thanks

Erm...it sort of looks like a girl to me, but I could be wrong, it may just be the photo. If you can get one closer to the face, we can tell. I'm sure about the mutation though.
