    I am not sure about the hen, I've looked at pics of my CBS hen and also some pics Blue Creek posted from Taylor Hill of a Peach BS and they are too similar to be able to say from a picture. However I can tell you she is carrying a spit because both Pics of Peach BS and CBS show very orange primaries, that hen has very white primaries, so split white perhaps?

    It's a tough call. I recall the peach blackshoulder hen being lighter than my cameo bs spalding. The peacock looks like an IB BS split midnight, since he is not Midnight BS

    The owner and I thought it was peach and that is how she was bred last year. But she was young so I am not sure if any chicks were produced to know if she is actually peach.

    She is a lot lighter than my Cameo BS hen. @Bluecreekfarms how can you tell the male is not Midnight BS, is the blue too bright?

    She is so bright, i think she is peach too, i'm looking at cameo bs hens pictures, they are darker than this seller hen, but his hen still not light like the hen in your post.

    Maybe the white eye makes her appear a different color. Yes the peacock is too bright to be midnight. Midnights are darker. [​IMG]
