Blue, Turquoise, Cobolt, Violet? um...

Post by blueindianringneck » Thu Oct 18, 2012 6:32 am

Can someone post pictures of what these colors are? I'll go to a bird show one guy will say that his baby is a blue.... like 5 feet away the same looking bird will be called a Turquoise. What are my birds considered? I'd really like to see someone post the difference of these colors and especially be shown what a cobalt color is.

Here is my male named Lavender. Is he a Violet?

Here is are 2 pictures of my male named Bubbles. Is he Blue?

Here are pictures of the babies we had this year. Are they Blue or Turquoise?

And what color is this bird considered? Her name is Cloud.

i suggest a joint pic with the violet cock blue hen and the clutch of chicks for comparison as its easy to incorrectly id the mutation. :mrgreen:

Bubbles is a DNA sexed young male. the picture of him and the green male and the one below it are the same bird. The babies pictures start with them on the tree on down to cloud.

Hi blueindianringneck,

If you can, try photographing your gorgeous birds in a well lit (natural light) room, without a flash, as the flash will always throw a different hue over the colour (usually brighter and more saturated), hence the vaslty different colour of the 2 photos of bubbles :)

Take my normal blue boy for example:

WITH FLASH - a slight green tinge to his wings and tail

Image



and WITHOUT FLASH - this more closely resembles his true colour, a powder blue colour

Image



Other than that, I would agree with molossus in regards to their colours; Lavender is a violet, Bubbles is a blue, chicks are blues and Cloud is blue pallid :D
Regards Deb

I did a google search...this is what I found;

Cobalt

There's also a couple of threads going on at the moment discussing cobalts, violets, and turquoise etc, some of which include pics. Here's one of the threads I've been following with interest;
