Default Mauve with violet

One of my spangle babies is a mauve. It is also possible that it can be a mauve violet, but how can one identify it? I don't have much knowledge of the colour mauve. If someone can tell me how to distiguish between mauve and mauve with violet I will be happy. Thanks.

No, the bird in my avatar isn't one of the parents - it is a grey BTW. The parents are a YF(2) cobalt spangle (cock) and the hen is an Opaline violet.

A bird can be mauve violet but it is often difficult to see the violet.

So the best way - and maybe the only way - is to breed him/her to a bird that doesn't have the violet factor. If there's a violet baby, he/she is carrying the violet gene. Correct?

Thanks. Yes, there's so much to learn, but I'm sure we will get there!

I've noticed with Mauve's w/ Violet factor you can tell sometimes it takes the light to hit just right but it'll give off a Violet iridescent color Vs. the normal Blueish grey color of Mauve's w/out Violet

Also when I breed a budgie w/violet factor to a budgie w/out Violet Factor usually every single one of the babies has the violet factor -Violet factor is Semi Dominant.

I'm by no means particularly great at determining mutation, and I absolutely cannot predict baby mutations, so I'm very sorry I'm of no help. BUT I would reallly love to see some pictures of the little one!
