    Well the hen that hatch them was a spalding split charcoal and pied.


    one chick is split pied by the flights, 1 is blackshourder , 1 is i think blackshoulder pied. not even sure the hen was just setting on her eggs,


    in my large flight pen she was only dark hen, others were bs pied , and 1 cameo bs silver pied. peacocks that could be father was purple pied, bs pied white eye, or a charcoal.

    So the two bs are not her chicks, my guess bs pied hens and the bs pied white eye are the parents, as far as i know the purple pied is not split to bs.

    I do have my other penned by color, charcoal with hens split to charcoal....bronze with bronze hen and pied hen split bronze...white (peach) peacock with bs silver pied hens and white hens.


    Less than 20 birds all for sale........sell most in trio. or pairs
