Question Update on Violet

So lately I've been looking at Violet very closely, observing her new feathers coming through from her moult. I've noticed that a blue colour is coming through on her wings and mixed throughout the white. I'm not sure if the blue has been there the whole time, but I've only just noticed.

What does this mean?? I read that an spangle opaline will show this characteristic...??

Heres some pictures... they aren't great but if you look closely you can see the blue coming through.

I don't think there is anything wrong. Sometimes budgie's colors will alter a bit, It's nothing to worry about.

Kelly,

I agree with Bella that many budgies coloring often changes a bit after the first molt.

My guys feathers now show much more green in with the yellow than they did before they molted.

Violet's feathers are gorgeous!!
What beautiful coloration she has!

The color in the wings is called opalescence.

She is just spangle, not opaline

If you take a picture of closed wing, you will only see Spangle.

Here is a wing of my Opaline.

Not being rude or anything but is that your dog lying on the floor? You can see it in the first photo (the white furry creature). Wow, be careful with having a dog in the room! If Violet slipped out of your hands the dog could have went for her in just one quick move! I've heard of stories where bird owners thought their dog was completely trustworthy and had a great bond with their bird, next minute the poor little soul is gone.
This is just a word of caution, sorry if it's not a dog and I'm mistaken though.
