    Little peachick is 10 weeks old today and I was just out with the camera... hoping this pic shows enough but O am thinking peacock? With this coloring, would I want to get a purple or a midnight? He is still with the chicken hen, but I want to take her away before too long and don't want the chick to be all alone... There are a few spots of green showing up on the neck in the right lighting.

    Thank you deerman... the one rust flight feather has made me suspect that for a while but nice to have it confirmed... now I just need to figure out what color buddy I want for him [​IMG] Parents are both 2 year olds, mom is silver pied and dad is BS, I suspect split pied (white throat and a white spot underneath). Little one is so fun to watch!
