Another thing to think about. Breeders show their best animals usually. Not all veileds look the same these days due to a lot of careless breeding. There is a lot of individual variation too. If you work directly with a breeder who has completely unrelated parent stock, knows the bloodlines well, or even wc stock you are more likely to get nice colors. Veileds sold cheaply through large companies are usually not as good. Many veileds go through a dull brownish phase at about 6 months of age and only color up at maturity when they see a rival or a female.
