    Quote:The males from the Bronze hen will be IB split to Bronze and Cameo, and the females will be Cameo split to Bronze. If you bred one of those male offspring to another Bronze hen, you could get some hens (1/4 of the female offspring) that are both Bronze and Cameo.

    The white could have anything going on genetically, which is masked by being white, so at best, all I can say is that the male offspring will be "something" split to Cameo and white, and the females will be Cameo split to white, though you could get other stuff if the white peahen is also something else (such as white-eyed, pied, or another color).
