    Quote:very valid question tglily! [​IMG] it actually stands for bronze turning white...we have a very special bronze peacock that changes yearly and displays more white with each year. very interesting thread on him here:https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=465834

    Little blue, I'm SO happy they all arrived safely and fyi to others, they were also individually wrapped in bubble wrap for shipping. [​IMG] We are very excitedly watching your progress! [​IMG]

    Have you locked on to the trait, will his offspring be like him?

    We're still working on that. Since it takes at least 3 years for the trait to even start to show up....it's going to be a loooonnnggg project! Well worth it though if we can nail it down. We have incubated the majority of these eggs but knew that little blue loved the boy and we wanted to send her something special so I gave up a few of my most coveted eggs up (I have another pen of Bronze that I normally sell out of). She wanted bronze so worst case it doesn't replicate for her and she gets a gorgeous bronze bird out of it! Best case we get to work together on this project! [​IMG]

    Thanks! I'm such a pea newbie! I've been reading and absorbing as much information as I can.

    That sounds really cool... I hope they breed true for you. From what I understand, charcoal is challenging as well.

    That they are (charcoals)! We have a pen if those too. [​IMG]. Yep, we like a challenge. [​IMG] they are so much fun though and very addictive.

    Really hoping little blue gets a great hatch.
