    Does anyone know what the sonja's violeta looks like? I read its name in the UPA list but I was surprised I had never heard of it does anyone know anything about the variety? I could not find anything on the internet.

    Sonja's Violeta peacock is big pile of it. There is no such thing. That is why no one has seen a photo of it that looks like anything other than an India Blue. Asking what the Violeta looks like is like asking what a giant pigmy looks like. It looks like everybody else.

    I must have been mistaken when I was at Brad Leggs 2 months ago and he brought me a beautiful male that had an almost black train and it was called a Sonja's Violetta. "Your not in Kansas anymore" for sure now,but 2 months ago I'm sure I was there,sure I witnessed 2 pens of adults,and have reserved a trio of them,,maybe I'm a liar too?
