Cameo vs Purple hens - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Lol i see lots of confusion with these two colors...
I have raised or currently raise peafowl, bantam chickens(all sorts), guineas, pigeons, mandarin ducks, runner ducks, golden pheasants, silver pheasants, quail, doves,finches, pigs, horses rabbits,etc etc.  Ask away if you have questions.  I have had animals my whole life and if I cant answer the question I will find the answer for you.

Well, that's not what the breeder told me.

Perhaps a different breeder is in order?  Three of us who have experience with these colors agree.  First pic is a Purple hen, second a Purple black shoulder hen.  I don't see anything on the face that tells me there is any green blood in them, perhaps that comes in later.

I used this site http://peafowlimagedatabase.weebly.com/spalding-cameo.html so that I would know what I was looking at & to make sure I was getting what they told me I was paying for. None of the birds posted there are as young as the two I bought, but the face patterning & colouring looked similar to me at the time of purchase. Thanks for straightening me out!

@KsKingBee...do you think there may be some ID-ing and/or labeling confusion on the Database?

(@uzisuzuki - that's actually our very own forum's Peafowl Image Database so I want to be sure we didn't lead you astray!)

I looked at all the Cameos and Purple pics and I see no mislabeling of any of my pics.  It takes time to learn all the subtle nuances involved in ID'ing peafowl, after all there are over 260 different color/patterns to learn.  I learned a new one the other day, Cameo Dark Pied.  And before you ask, yes, I do.  I had called them Cameo split White in the past.
