This first photo is the most accurate as far as color but still off. The purple arrows are where there are light areas of violet. The blue is where she has skyblue color. I am confused if she has a violet factor as what I have read is a bird can have some violet and not have any violet factors so am unsure if this is the case?

I don't see any violet but I am not an expert so maybe wait for someone who is more experienced with this sort of thing :) He/she is a cutie well done with that little bub :love:

Violet doesn't show up well in photos, and if you read my questions you really need to know violet genes in order to answer my question. But thanks.

I can see violet in the nape of the neck area and you are right about the colour not showing effectively - it is so frustrating as you can see the wildness of the colour but it doesn't replicate on film.

Also, I would have thought with the 2 other siblings being violet - surely would this one not also contain the violet factor? That would make sense to me - although way above my head as far as in depth mutation understanding goes - so I may be wrong.

A little beauty though Teasha - this clutch has really done you proud :love:

A lot of my opaline spangles look slightly violet around the neck & shoulder area but I don't think they are violets.

Like most have said I can't see any violet but that doesn't mean it's not there. I have violets and I change the color in photo shop to make the violet show true. I'm not sure why but for some reason cameras don't capture the violet it turns out blue. But anyway What do the parents look like? Do they have any violet genes? A bird can either be 0 factor violet singls factor violet or double factor violet. 0 means there is no violet, single means it's violet tinted and double means depending on the sade and body color it should be true violet.

Dad is a cobalt violet and mom is a skyblue violet. I do have a journal up if you wanted to browse through. I have read and read on violets and still end up confused. I think it helps me to see my subject and photos do not show true so I don't have that visual aid. Since photos do not show violet, is there a common object to compare the different shades of violet to.

I am also interested in how many factor my other chick has. http://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=63046 She is a violet cobalt so has at least one dark factor. How can I tell if it has two? I'm almost thinking she does have two. The color is darker than the photos show, more vibrant.

She is all violet there is no blue in her feathering except the navy blue tail. Her dad is a violet cobalt and mom is a skyblue cinnamon spangle violet. They are here: http://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=61068

Okay! What a great plan! You pick up Teasha's bub, bring it to me, and then take your pick of my clutch! How very sweet of you to help me acquire my newest budgie.
