    I don't know what that color is called. If anyone finds out,
    let me know too.

    My grey bird's parents are:
    Ma: Whitefaced Australian cinnamon violet.
    Pa: Whitefaced Australian cinnamon.

    Grey bird's mother's parents (her grandparents) are:
    Ma: Dutch blue.
    Pa: Dark violet pied w/DDF. (I'm not sure pa is a violet
    because he's really dark and not very blue either)

    I don't know any history of the grandparents boyond this.

    The grandparents have always thrown violets with SDF and WFACV
    with SDF, always females too. (I kept the first clutch of 4
    females, 2 WFACV and 2 violets, and they're paired up now and
    breeding) They have never thrown a pied. The babies I kept
    have never thrown a pied either.

    I'll have to check the flight feathers of the two violet birds
    I kept back to see if they have any white flights, right now I
    can't remember and it's late at night and they're sleeping.

    But those two violets I kept back have each had two cluches
    and there were no pieds in those clutches either. One is
    paired with another violet and they throw three different
    shades of blue.
