    If they are white, that means both your birds are split to white, or they may even be dark pied. Yes you will get blue peachicks also.

    Pied X Pied =25% white chicks.

    You have pics of the birds. Blackshoulder chicks hatch out yellow with a light color on the wing.

    Unless the parents have some white on their wings and maybe chin too.. the white chicks probably are Black Shoulder chicks. They start out either very white or cream colored with light buff color on the wings. If the wings seem white now but start to show some color as they grow, they are Black Shoulders.
