    Blackshoulder X india blue all blue chicks split blackshoulder. Shometime the split male will start showing the blackshoulder pattern on his lower wings so if your blue male is showing that he is split to blackshoulder.

    No, their lower wing will be black.

    An IB split to blackshoulder will look like a pure IB and carry the blackshoulder gene (meaning if bred back to a blackshoulder you'd get blackshoulder kids).

    Quote:They will look like a blue but they can still show the blackshoulder pattern on there lower wing seen it many times. If you ever see one you can tell the different in the wing from a blue.

    Glad you said that. I've seen that on some peacocks and wondered why the bottom part of the wing was black. One more thing I know now [​IMG] .

    Here a picture of a blue that split blackshoulder you can see he is starting to show the blackshoulder pattern a normal blue will have a few black feathers but not this much as he get older the wing will get more and more black on it. I had a male that I sold half his wing was black.

    I was wondering about that!! I have seen pictures of peacocks were they had a lot of black on their wings but they were not blackshoulder, so is this another example (background one being blackshoulder and front one being split to BS)?
