    I have a chick that has a chest which is uniformly more brown than its siblings who have white chests. I might be from a garden center which has a purple black shoulder male and might have some purple hens so I was wondering if the chicks might be purple because it looks kind of like some purple chicks I saw on Amy's Peacock Paradise. Other than the chest it looks like its siblings. I will post a pic as soon as possible.

    Can anyone describe purple peachicks for me. The chick is a male, he has a darker back than the other India Blue male peachick of the same age. His chest is light brownish almost orange instead of light tannish white. I did not have my camera with me so I could not take any pictures today.
