No, Tim. Silver is another term for American White. When you
described your bird to me, you used the term Silver. That is
why I mentioned that it is also called American White.
As you know, lovebird organizations both in the USA, Europe and
other parts of the world, cannot agree on a universal
terminology to describe mutations as each country feels that
their "interpretation" is correct! So we have quite a few
interchangeable tems to describe the same mutation.
If your bird has a blus wash on the rump, it wouldn't carry a
violet factor or be considered violet. It would be a WF AC.
The blue rump is normal for them.
