I was cruising the UPA site hoping to find chick (of the pea variety, so don't get too excited) pictures- very few. Anyway, unless I misunderstood, while BS purple breed true, spaulding BS purple don't. My question is- how can this be? It suggests that the color / pattern were arrived at differently and that (to me) doesn't make any sense. I realize that much of the information we have about chickens is due to the poultry industry,i.e. food, but it still stuns me that there doesn't seem to be much consensus on anything in regards to peafowl.
