    We hatched this chick from a India Blue White Eyed Pied Peacock and a Purple Peahen. We do not know the background of either of the parent birds. If I understand things correctly, if it is a female, it would be India blue pied and if it is a male it would be India Blue Pied split purple. Either sex would have the possibility of being white-eyed. Is that correct or am I missing something?

    Thanks, Tracy

    White eyed is dominant so it is white eyed. You are right about the purple genetics, it is IB pied white eyed and if it is a male split purple. It is a nice pied!

    white eye is co-dominant, so could be white eye ,but not all will be. Yes pied , so the purple hen is split pied.
