Single factor violet-cobalt yellow-faced type 2nd budgies

Hi Members,
Since my double factor yellow-faced type mauve normal male budgie and his wife-single factor violet-cobalt normal budgie are going to produce future 4-6 chicks, half will be violet form and half will be non-violet form, half will be violet form SF YF2 and non-violet form SF YF2.

Yellow-faced type 2nd = YF2
Single factor = SF
Double factor = DF

When baby budgies leave the nest, wearing the juvenile plumages and then they wear adult plumages, I face the likely difficult problem of telling the diffenerce between SF violet cobalt YF2 & SF violet-mauve YF2 and non-violet SF cobalt & mauve YF2.

:budge: How can I tell SF violet-cobalt YF2 & SF violet-mauve YF2 from non-violet SF cobalt YF2 & SF mauve YF2 ????

Photoes will be OK.

Single factor violet on a mauve budgie can be difficult to see, especially before the first moult. If the yellow spreads much from the YF2 it could make it even harder.

It should be easy to distinguish between the cobalts and the cobalt violets
