Violets are considered the 'purple' budgie. The range in depth of purple. The base colours for blue are sky blue, cobalt and mauve. Violet is a colour adding gene, so you can have single factor violet sky blue's, cobalts and mauves and then you can have double factor violet sky blues, cobalts and mauves which are an even deeper colour of purple than the single factor varieties.

What you need to breed violets, is to have at least one violet parent. Violet can be found in green birds as well, but it is much harder to identify as they dont look purple, they just become a darker green for the most part.

Not sure about ages, but for the most part I could be able to tell the gender and mutations.

Top row left to right:
1st bird - Normal Dark green male
2nd bird - Normal sky blue male
3rd bird - Yellowface type one grey; can't tell gender
4th bird - Colbalt Cinnamon; can't tell gender

Bottom row left to right:
1st bird - Light green opaline; can't tell gender
2nd bird - Violet Opaline; possible female
3rd bird - Dark green dominant pied; possible male
4th bird - Olive green cinnamon spangle opaline; female
5th bird - Normal light green; can't tell gender

Not sure how accurate these are, so I would let one of the mutation experts answer, but these are my guesses.:)
