    I have 3 peachicks hatched from a mixed flock of the following varieties:
    INDIA BLUE
    BLACK SHOULDER
    MIDNIGHT BLACK SHOULDER
    SPAULDING-INDIA BLUE/JAVA GREEN
    WHITE
    INDIA BLUE PIED
    BLACK SHOULDER PIED
    PURPLE PIED
    PURPLE PIED WHITE EYE

    Any ideas what these three could be? The 1st and 2nd peachicks could be the same variety since they appear very similar in color.

    Peachick 1: Light brown with white

    Updated pictures of the group of 4 taken today, 7/6. I'm seeing a few greenish-blue feathers on the neck of 3 of these. It's hard to get individual pictures of these - they are really active. I really appreciate those of you who are helping ID these. I am having the hardest time telling subtle differences in the colors of young peachicks.
