Default ?? New Bird

I've posted these pics in the new arrivals area, but really keen to know the mutation of my new little one.

My extremely amateur guesses are: the yellow on the face extends into the wings, although you cannot really see it on these pics, so does this make it a type 2? Assuming from the chest band it's a pied (dominant??), and not sure whether it's a dilute/grey wing? LOL. I'm probably completely wrong on all accounts, but it's fun guessing...

I can't be much help to you in the mutation department but your bird is absolutely beautiful!! Are your little guy's feet ok? They look like he's turning his toes in quite a bit.

Thank you, I was very taken by his colouring too .

No, unfortunately I think he hasn't had a very good start to his life. Presume it's from poor nesting . I just bought him today from a garden centre; I know there's nothing I can do to fix his feet but hoping to give him as good a life as possible .

Poor baby....unfortunately you can't change a previous lack of care, but giving him a new start and a long happy healthy life can make all the difference in the world!!

Just shamelessly bumping this as I would really like to know Douwe's mutation?

If the photos aren't clear enough I will attempt to get more...

From what I can tell he's Violet Grey Grey wing Clear Flight pied
his body color Maybe mauve

his feet are like that because of 1 of 2 reasons
A) - Splayed leg - some times it only effects the feet
B)- He at one time had a sever case of Scaly face- feet mites and it wasn't treated properly or early enough and caused his feet to become deformed

either way you'll be surprised how well he'll be able to get around

Thank you for the responses - wow I've always fancied a violet so that's extra lovely if he is. Interesting info about the feet too, I hadn't thought of the second option. He seems to be getting around okay, a few stumbles and slips, but I guess being so young doesn't help that .
