I'm not very familiar with mutations yet but I think she's
Normal Cobalt with grey factor


Does that seem correct? There's also the possibility of being mauve.
I would appreciate everyone's opinions, thanks!

I was told by someone (don't remember exactly who it was on here) that grey factor changes the color of the cheek patches and your bird's look normal, so I'd go with mauve as well.

Alright, perfect! Thank you everyone.

I thought that the grey factor changed the main body color that's why I was mistaking the cobalt. Now I see the difference.I do appreciate all your help. I must read and reread some more. Maybe I'll remember all the differences sooner or later!

The way to tell a mauve from a grey is by the cheek patches and the tail

A mauve will have violet cheek patches and a dark navy blue tail

A grey will have blue, silver or grey cheek patches and a black tail

Ah, okay thanks for the tip! I'll remember that.

Am I wrong, or doesn't that mean she is grey? I see blue cheek patches and a black tail. Maybe another picture would help.

You know, it's even hard for me to tell just looking at her. My lighting is horrible right now and I can't get very good pictures but here is a close up of her cheek patches. They look blue to me.



This is my best picture so far of her tail and it's not good at all. More to come eventually.

She is a mauve :) Here are some pics of a adult grey male and another baby... see how they have blue/grey cheek patches with no purple? And his tail is pure black with no blue in it? I donno if that helps or not :)

What colour is the tail? Black or deep deep blue? Any blue at all = mauve. Straight black = grey regardless of presence/absence of violet.

The cheek patches are not right for a mauve. I think you have a violet grey
Alright thanks for posting!

Much to learn from Nev ;)
:DGood to hear

This is still under debate. It looks like a deep blue to me but it's so dark it's hard to tell.

Thanks again to everyone that's posted.

Edit: Her tail is definitely deep blue so mauve seems to be correct.
