Hi there- it can get pretty confusing when different names are used to describe the same mutation/s

I like this one for beginners, as it has a good range of basic mutations with both old and new names: http://psittacula-world.com/EN/Mutations/P-krameri.htm

1 Dark(factor) on Blue = Cobalt
And
2 Dark(factors) on Blue = Mauve

For a single Dark factored (Blue) bird, you can call it either a Cobalt or a Dark Blue (both are correct).

And as Johan has already said- lacewing IS Pallid :)

Keep in mind that this website was started before the IndigoBlue was confirmed. Many of the pictured TurquoiseBlue birds are obvious IndigoBlues.

Yeah, I've noticed that- which is why there needs to be a new updated one (whatever happened to that project???)

so at the risk of sounding like a tool. from the web site above when i read over it. I have two cock birds both i was told yellow so (lutino) they both have a green or aqua through their tail etc like a wash. which kinda makes them look more electric yellow or fluro yellow not as dark as the other Lutino female i have or the others ive seen.
Would this make them not Lutino but infact Pallid-ino?

I thought a pallidino would have a dark ring coming from the beak. That ring kind of represents a lutino more than a pallidino. My lutinos would show a green sheen under certain lighting conditions, much the same way an albino will show a blue sheen.

Admittedly, I only saw the pic on my mobile in which it looked as though it had a grey and pink ring- (am now on computer- but pic has gone so can't determine this) but the above (in bold) statement does make it sound as though there is not just Ino at play.

Edit- can see picture again and yeah, I still think Pallidino- however would like to see some without flash to be certain.

ok I will try to get better photos without flash. in person the aqua like green is more noticeable in the tail etc. than this photo. the hen I have is more of a dark block like yellow. in person his eye isn't red either the pupil is black and the other part of the iris is blue.
