Violet factor in Forpus coelestis???

After we published our article in which we discussed the possible presence or absence of a violet factor in Forpus coelestis in the magazine of the Dutch Forpus Society, we received a telephone call from two enthusiasts stating that based on the breeding results of their birds, the so-called violet factor is most probably a dark factor. Unfortunately, we did not receive any data on their breeding outcomes.

A month later we published that same article in AOB Belgium and now we received breeding results from two fanciers, one from Spain and one from Belgium, which indicated that the violet factor in their Forpus coelestis is actually a dark factor.

So, till now,  we only have evidence for the presence of a dark  factor in Forpus coelestis.
