    I'm thinking this is a purple male, but am not sure. [​IMG] This chick is just short of 9 weeks old. Quick background on the pen it came from....India Blue White Eyed Pied split Purple peacock with a Purple hen, India Blue Hen and India Blue Pied Hen. Any thoughts?

    Does look like a purple, but I'd wait a few weeks to give the front breast feathers a little more time to show their distinguishing features as to whether male or female.
