    Well, it depends on what their base color is. Violet is just a factor and not a mutation in itself. So like Mika a Dutch Blue Edged Dilute with a Single Violet Factor.

    Can you post pictures?

    This site shows them and I believe the very 1st pic is one
    http://www.africanlovebirdsociety.co...ics/violet.htm

    what it means is both of yours are single factor violets, 1/2 your babies(if it's the same as budgies anyway) will be Double factor violets and the other half will be single Factors (like the parents)

    I did the genetic calculator as just "single violets" no other colors -because I don't know if yours are green, or what but it also came up with some "normals" (Greens) but that would be replaced by what ever other mutation they are.

    so the gentic calculator reads(from the way I did it as just single factor violets)

    Males - Normal Green
    Males- Double Factor Violets
    Males - Single factor violets

    Females -Normal Green
    Females- Double Factor Violets
    Females - Single factor violets

    Not taking into account any other mutations here is how violet would work if both of your birds have at least one violet 'gene'

    If yours were both single factor violet you could potentially get 25% Double Factor , 50% Single factor and 25% Normal (non violet)

    If yours were both Double factor all babies would be Double Factor

    If one of yours was Double factor and the other was single factor you could get 50% Double Factor and 50% Single Factor.
