Hi everybody,
Mocha appears to be a cobalt recessive pied spangle.
Mocha's parents are a normal cobalt **** and a violet recessive pied spangle with a grey factor hen. I will provide pictures if needed :)
However her cheek patches are way lighter than her dad', they have this violet tint to them, and you see a bit of violet around her neck in the 2nd picture as well.
Does she have a violet factor?





Thanks in advance :)

I'm going to say it again... you can ignore me if you want... BUT

Mocha has a "gorgeous" factor! :D

( There I said it, I feel better now... I tried not to respond to your question ;) )

If the colour in the photo is true I think that Mocha is a violet sky blue. The colour is not dark enough for a cobalt. A violet factor on a sky blue is often mistaken for cobalt

I agree with Kay

Thank you all :) Mocha wants to say thanks as well ;)

The picture was taken in natural lighting and this is actually how she looks like when I look at her :). Nev, is it even possible for her parents to produce a sky blue? Sorry for the silly question. I don't really know how the dark factor thing works :p
By the way, it is such a compliment to hear that you think she is gorgeous since you always seem to breed the most beautiful budgies ever :)
