    I just purchased this pair. Man said they were purple BS yearlings. I thought they looked a little rough. Peacocks head feathers are missing. Do they look like Purple?

    Quote:They are certainly black shoulder, I dont know about purple. It is not unusual for peas to peck each others crests off.

    BS but not purple, the male may be split purple......BS purple would have brown specks in place of the black ones...Remember no hen can be split purple,cameo,and peach


    Edit to add that was chemo brain working , read today had put chemo in place of cameo.......[​IMG]
