My baby is just about six months old. At what age will he have his full color?

Not until at least the first full molt out of the baby coat of feathers. It also depends on what you are feeding your bird. All seed diets are slow starvation for parrots, and your bird needs to be weaned onto organic pellets. Harrison's is the best, is found here, and you will not need to give any vitamin or mineral supplements as the pellets are a complete diet. The only thing you'd add is organic fruit and veggies though they can make up only 10-15% of the bird's total diet.

Here is a link on how to go about change. Now is the time to get your bird onto a food that will provide it with complete nutrition which supports healthy skin and feathers:
