Default 24 Days old - take another stab at it?

At 18 Days this is what was said:

The chick is some sort of pied because of the clear wing feathers and pied spot. and I'm going to guess it's a cobalt blue, just because of the parents. We will have to see exactly what pied when it gets a bit bigger. Same goes with the gender. It looks like a female but it is really hard to tell from photos.
She (maybe a she?) is getting some more bright blue so I was wondering if opinions changed?

However, if mom is sky and dad is mauve, you will only get cobalt chicks.

I agree with Erin. The chick looks like a sky blue, dominant pied, grey wing. From what I can remember about the parents, your male may also have a grey factor making him look darker. And because the chick is grey wing Both parents must be split for grey wing. Very nice looking chick.

Thank you I was looking (drooling) at a grey wing at the local pet store a few months ago and fuming over the fact that most of their birds looked in rough shape - I got lucky I wasn't going to breed again, but after this result I may have to put the nest box up again in a couple of months
