Default I thought she was a cinnamon but...

She is silvery on the back, kind of patchy and I got to looking and she has yellow scalloping on the ends of individual breast feathers. It makes her chest look a yellowish green. All my babies are aviary kept, mostly shaded. She was born in my aviary. She's 2 years old this spring. Before this year she had spots on her upper breast that are now gone. I named her Freckles because of her peculiar spots.
I have another female who is 9 and she is a true cinnamon, her name is Ringo. She just came to my aviary early this year. Upon a side by side comparison their colors are very much different. I do know that cinnamons are photosensitive but would it cause her to be so silver and green?

Mother: WF pearl visually
Father: normal gray visually

Brother: normal gray visually
Sister: normal gray split to pied visually.

I don't know any splits as this is as far back as their timeline goes from my aviary. I'll try to get a picture of both Freckles and Ringo.

This first one is breast shot of Freckles, then a back shot. Next is Ringo, and last is Freckles sister, Ellie.

It looks like sun-faded cinnamon to me.
