Fake vs real purple/violet budgies:

Real:

The biggest difference is that real purple budges aren't 100% purple; they are slightly muted or light/blueish.
1st one of the real ones seems to be fake. Purple waddle spots+the 'purple' seeing into it's wing... I'm calling it fake.

The first budgie in the โ€œfakeโ€ section looks no different than those in the real section. Itโ€™s the same color purple-blue even.

The cere is very dark purple, I also went to the site the pic is originally from and the user admitted it's fake..
There's also some purple in the head which doesn't look right..

That's 100% photoshopped lol

Where did you get this?
from Facebook.

Currently I am on 3 parrot-related Polish groups, all of them are moderated by a lady who often shares such fake photos and sometimes she even believes they are real:LOL: (at least she believed in purple hyacinth macaws:LOL:)
