Default Help with mutation please!

Can someone please help with this baby's mutation? I know it is Opaline Spangle, but I'm unsure of the body colour. To me it looks like there is some violetn but the colour is so light. The dad is a skyblue/Opaline and the mother is a Mauve RP spangle. Maybe she could be a cobalt violet to get this baby.

If the parents are sky blue (no dark factors, or dd) and mauve (2 dark factors, or DD), then the only color the chicks can be is cobalt (1 dark factor, or Dd).

Can you post a better picture of the mother?

That's what I was thinking! I will try over the weekend to get a better pic. Now I leave so early for work and get back after dark. I've tried to get a pic of her, but she is difficult to get a good pic.

The chick looks like a sky violet in those pics It doesn't look dark enough for a cobalt, and the little color I can see on the mom does not look like she is dark enough to be a mauve , but I can not see her body clearly

Was this a cage breeding or colony? Just wondering of the parents of this chick are 100% known

I agree with you. This was cage breeding.

There is only one way to really know for sure.....You are going to have to send the bird to me I will check the color and let you know. I will take great care of my new bird so you will have no worries.

This bird isn't much really, but I like her very much.

Susan is right. A sky and a mauve will give you all cobalt chicks.

OK, thanks, but what do you think the baby is. I agree with Lindsey that the baby is a skyblue violet - although I've never seen one and I had a different picture in my head how a skyblue violet looks like - I thought it would look more like a cobalt, but this baby is for sure a violet. Isn't it possible that it could be a cobalt violet dilute? Remember that the mother was colony bred. The dad on the other hand was cage bred by me, but as you all know some genes can be hidden for some generations. I'm just asking! What do you clever people think?
