    I have F1 juveniles from a cross between Bronze split white male x spalding silverpied hen, They look like spaldings, I could see w/e s on their tail feathers, One of the males look like a pied bird ( one white, one pied and one w.e genes ). If I cross this male with the female from the same F1 sibling, what are the odds of getting a Spalding Bronze silverpied chick ? and also a Spalding Bronze pied chick ? in the second generation. I understand a two year old peacock may or may not be fertile, but just in case. My previous bronze males at the age of two had fairly long train with good many number of Oscilli.

    breed the male to a female with white flights.
    one in 4 will be bronze spalding

    out of those 4 - only 1:16 could be sp
    - only 1:16 could be pied
    - only 1:8 could be pied w/e
    remember, in actuality from your F1xF1, the odds are more like 1:64 for the sp and pied, and 1:32 for the pied w/e

    not good odds, but it still makes it possible.

    Thanks Arbor for the clarification and suggestion. That will be my next years plan to produce a bronze pied with or without w/e.
