    I have a blue Swedish that looked like a standard blue Swedish till now he just had his first molt and is still molting on his head ... He's getting random green feathers on his head and his belly feathers are getting a brown tone in them what does this mean

    Can you post a picture? Sounds like it could be a black as I don't think blues get the green sheen. The brown could be from the sun.
