Can someone tell me the colour of a RP's cheeck patches? I thought it is violet, but now I have 2 babies and their cheeck patches are white.
The markings on these 2 are also very pale.
The mother is a GF violet FB greywing. I don't know who the father is, because I'm doing colony breeding.
Here are some pictures of the babies.

is the mom by chance Dominant pied as well?

looks like either Double factor Dominant pied or a combo of Dominant Pied & recessive pied

That was my line of thinking as well - when I compare my birds with others that I found here on TB and other places, but unfortunately the hen is not a dominant pied. [In fact, there is one clearflight pied in my avairy, but I cannot identify it. 3 of my babies are clearflight pieds.]
Here is a picture of the hen. The second picture is the one I think is the father: Green RP (The green bird in the picture is his father - the mother is a cobalt)

hmm I'm not sure then

but i know in colony breeding it is very possible for an egg to be in a nest that doesn't belong to Either parent that is using the box it's happened many times So the mom nor the dad was the actual parents

but if you don't have any other dominant pied's in your aviary than I am lost lol

I can't help any, but if you'd like I can contribute pictures of my two recessive pieds. Winter's cheek patches are white. Sunny's are blue and white stripes.

Pics if you want: Winter and Sunny.

Are you sure the father is a RP green? He looks a bit like a YF2 RP sky blue. He also has clear cheek patches.

By the way, the baby is gorgeous! :loveeyes:

There is no particular colour for a recessive pied's cheek patches. The cheek patches will take their colour from the bird's base colour. If the pied areas cover the cheek patches they could just look white or yellow. A grey recessive pied will have blue or grey cheek patches. A blue or green based recessive pied will have violet cheek patches. If the bird has a violet factor the shade of the cheek patches will be brighter. Cinnamon recessive pieds have lilac cheek patches.

would it be brighter as in looking more Violet or could it look blue?

Because I've often wondered if my 1st Rp had a violet factor but his cheek patches look more Navy blue or maybe Cobalt blue would be a better word to use. They're defiantly not Violet (i know that color well :D )

and is that only for Recessive pieds? or would it go for Dom. pieds as well?

I have a dominant Pied Who I know has a violet factor and he's cobalt and his cheek patches match the Recessive pieds to a T
