Effect Of This Color Adding Factor On Body: Violet budgies will be an even shade of light to dark violet body color (depending on the dark factors the budgie has) on their chest, breast and rump where it will be the darkest Cheek Patches: Deep violet Main Tail Feathers: Deep navy blue violet
Commonly Mistaken For: Many violet sky blue budgies are mistaken for cobalt blues, and many cobalt violets for mauves because the violet gene darkens and intensifies the body color.
Cheek Patches And Main Tail: Violet will change the normal appearance of cheek patches and main tail feathers when combined with other mutations as well.
Ultraviolet Mutations In Pictures: Violet does not show well in pictures. In person a single factor, and especially double factor violet, should be easy to identify in blue based budgies by its to a bright fluorescent purple. However, in pictures violet often adds if nothing else a brightness and intensity to the dark factor (or lack of in sky blue) the budgie is. The reason for this is that most camera lenses can not pick up ultra violet hues, while our eyes in person can.
