I'm looking at the violet turq. pied hen and i can barely see any violet in her whereas the violet turq. pied male has heaps of visual violet.
they are all unrelated.
Violet should increase after the 1 y moult esp. in tails.

I understand what you are saying as I have 2 youngsters that I managed to get my hands on that were bred from a Violet Blue X Edged Grey/Dilute
The 2 youngsters I have are grey in colour , 1 is edged and the other one looks like a normal grey bird .
When I have them in the sun I can see an almost cobalt sheen over the birds with some specks on the feathers that look violet (They are very small ) But I can see the violet blue comming through . I know what a cobalt grey and a mauve grey look like as I have them in my cages .

This looks compleatly different , The flights and tail feathers are very dark ,very close to black .
I am waiting for them to mature and then will re-evaluate the feather condition

Regards
Robert
