    I have a few young ones, and one male that is just starting to look way darker.... anyhow, they are a much darker blue as adults, like if you mixed black in with the Indian blue to darken it (sorry I'm an artist). As juvies they have more green on the neck. The adult males are just beautiful...... [​IMG], almost have a bronzie cast about their train feathers, or at least the one I saw.....
