If I understand it correctly (which is always
questionable where I'm concerned) I think
violet is a genetic add-on, which is layered
onto other colors, including green and grey.
It just shows up better in blue so that folks
likemyself, who is not always sure what she's
looking at, can recognize it more easily. :)

Skye is correct :) They will always have 0, 1 or two dark factors in blue or green in addition to a color adding factor like sf or df violet :)

I took the liberty of going through Lindsey's amazing
mutation site last night and realized that my new
addition, Freebird, is a violet-factored light green if
I'm reading it correctly. So I have a green bird with
a single violet factor if her blue feathers are telling
me the truth :)

Quote ..As I understand it, it also shows on skyblue budgies with double factor violet
..It will also show on sky in the single factor form..It will appear darker than normal sky but lighter than normal cobalt.It can show on any color in single or double factor form.It is more ovious in the double factor to the eye.
