    I thought I would post some updated pics of the baby that hatched on 9/14... she is in a chicken hut up in my daughters bedroom (DD doesn't live here anymore). I put in a branch for her to roost on, but she prefers to go into the 'upstairs' part to sleep. There is a ramp leading up, and it has wood slats on the bottom. I need to get in there and scrape them off, she is making a real mess in there. I'll probably pick up a cheap putty scraper at work in the morning before I come home from work, I doubt DH would be really impressed if I used one of his good scrapers. Anyhow, here she is!

    Pedda - In the last picture the first two in front they are cameo pied on left and peach pied on right correct? That is a good picture showing how close they are in color. Cameo is a little darker. One day I will take a ride up to your place and buy some birds LOL [​IMG]

    Frosty what a cutie you got there. Are you handling her so she will be tame for you later?

    Hi, Yoda and everybody, In the last picture, the one on the left is " Cameo pied split peach" male (as described by Aquaeyes-the legend in genetics--containing two Cameo genes and one purple gene ) looks a little lighter than a pure Cameo.). The one on the right is " a peach pied hen" (with one cameo gene and one purple gene on a cross over Z chromosome ). I The others in the picture are 3 Cameosplit peach males ( look more like a cameo than a peach.). Happy new year to every member and peafowl lovers Thanks.

    Gorgeous birds pedda! You must be so proud of them, I know I would be!

    kuntrygirl, she is just on wood shavings that I need to change out. It's also mixed with the food that she loves to spill [​IMG]

    Good job on the identification Yoda! Now maybe you can make a guess on what color my little one is? I don't handle her a whole lot, and I quit holding out meal worms for her to take. She grabs my fingers every time and got to the point where she bites me when I even reach for her. I need to get that habit broke before it gets to the point where it hurts. No biggie, she is still tame enough where she approaches me.

    Anyone want to think of a name for her?
