post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Early last year i had made a mistake of not checking my netting between my white adn cameo peacocks and they bred together.
I am calling the pea-chicks they gave me Splash Cameos
New standard?
or is there already a name for that mix?
Phoenix bantam Roosterm, 2 white cubalaya/Phoenix hens, 2 brown leghorn hens, a chocolate jersey giant, blue splash shamo pullet, a blue pumpkin shamo cockerel, bantam hen mix, Muscovy ducks, blue splash french maran hen, blue barred maran hen, black austrolorp hen

You just have birds with splits, nothing new here. Sorry, splash is an outdated word that is not used in peafowl.

Yep, splash is an old school terminology, pied is the correct replacement nowadays. Your birds are considered splits and you have several possibilities/potentials within your splits if you want to take the time and produce the colors but, what I have found is that sometimes its easier to just buy the colors you want rather than produce. Hope this helps.

 ​If one of your Cameo males bred a white hen you would get Cameo split white daughters and India blue split Cameo and split white sons. If one of your White males bred a Cameo hen all offspring would be India blue split white and only the sons would be split Cameo as well. Cameo is a sex-linked color. 

 

 

Edited to add:  If the whites are out of Cameos, it's a whole different ball game!
