    I agree better pic would help plus parentage. I am guessing they came from cock that was or was split Purple black shoulder and hen regular black shoulder so hen is purple black shoulder and male is regular black shoulder.

    'Pure' is a relative term in peafowl. The parent cock is most likely split to Cameo and/or the mother BS hen is really a Cameo BS.
