    I have a 20 mo old Spalding pied MALE peafow that shows 2 ft long tail but with only one real green ocilli on a fairly long tail feather. I intend to pair him up with a two year old Spalding silverpied hen only, no other mature hens in the penn. Can we expect any FERTILE EGGS from this combo. Thanks to all my friends.
