    I just bought 3 peachicks (all were supposed to be white) to hang out with my bs and ib friends. The third, which is 1 week old today maybe bs or pied? Their parents are unknown. The woman I bought them from had many different colors (silver pied, India blue, white) but couldn't be sure who mated who since she lets them free range 24/7/365. She was an unexperienced new breeder who didnt understand what i meant by "my bs's are split to white". Notice the light tan wings and speckled black bum.

  2. Most likely a BS chick. (Hint; cropped pics make this much easier.)

    BS Silver pied would be ok, though I could have just gotten some from that seller. I was hoping I'm wrong about guessing BS since I already have some. Thanks Dany12 & KsKingBee.
    Attaching new pics. Legg's has only a couple of good chick pics

    Parents unknown. Woman I got them from freeranges several different colors. It does have white feathers btw, there's a few coming in now. She has silver pied, white, IB, B.S. and purple. I txt her yesterday to see if she has any similar markings on her other chicks. This is her first year hatching so she's just learning. She's new to peafowl. A few years ago I got adult BS pair. I raised 3 chicks last year and I'm raising 5 now. I'm just dying to know what kind of mutt I have!
     
  9. It is for sure a Black Shoulder, most likely IBBS and the little white may indicate Pied but it will be a few weeks to tell.

    Posting new pics, I'm still unsure what this peachick is. It's about 10 weeks old now. Thanks for any help you can offer! 20171019_085410.jpg 20171019_085518.jpg
