    Hey everybody I hatched 3 india blue peafowl a few months ago and I ended up with 1 girl and 2 boys. Well I notice that the female and one of the males have white feathers in their wing feathers. Does this mean that they are split for white? And if I breed them together what percent of the offspring will be white? I've ALWAYS wanted white peafowl!!

    This a pic of one of them to show the white wing feathers:

    Sorry the pics aren't very good. They're hard to photograph
