    Mutation ID

    https://pasteboard.co/Jy1MZRA.png

    Need some help identifying this one. Looks like a SF Violet D Turquoise to me, possibly pied??

    (One on the right is the same as the one in the first picture)

    One on the left looks like SF Violet D Turquoise Opaline, possibly pied?? Also, canít work out the apricot brow that looks to extend to the top of the head- what does this indicate.

    Thoughts?? Specifically you, Tim

    I think your guess for the first bird could be right, or just D Turquoise. Hard for me to tell...

    As for the other, the brow color is going farther back because it's an Opaline. I usually call it a cap instead of a brow. 😂

    Thanks Tim! Glad to know Iím on the right lines.

    What distinguishing feature do you look for in a bird with a Violet factor? It seems to get complicated with a Dark factor involved too..
