    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.
