Spangle always make it tricky to determine colouring that may be identified by the tail or cheek patches.

Looks to be a Yellow Face spangle mauve. Could be a violet grey, but Im leaning towards mauve.

I dont know his mutation but i can sure tell you that he is a STUNNING bird.

I am sure that some of our resident experts will chime in though :)

I would have to agree with dean. This bird is a spangle yellow face type 2 mauve. Spangle is when the markings are on the outside of the birds wing feather instead f being colored on the inside. This mutation is dominant meaning when bred with a normal 50% of the chicks will be spangle. Yellow face type two means the yellow in the face go through the wing and tail as well. Mauve is a blue bird that has two dark factors. A bird with 0 dark factors is sky blue a bird with 1 dark factor is cobalt and a bird with 2 dark factors is mauve.
