    There is something really special about a loud pied! I've always had an obsession with this mutation! Below are 2 of my boys, the first male has incredible white on his front, but lacking white elsewhere, the other male has great amount of white in his train but too much colour on his front, so hoping to breed the perfect combo some day.

    Wow that is very unique! So he grows the one white feather every season?

    All I can say is two years in a row he grew that same white feather in the center, but after he shed his four year old train one night a raccoon killed him. He was my favorite bird and that was the first predator issue I ever had. My new favorite bird is Peep, who happens to be this bird's son.

    George! It looks like someone stole your photo to sell eggs?
    Perhaps you should watermark your photos so people can't use them?

    O K .. actually I sold that bird to the lady in Fla. . She wanted him to breed from with her silver pied. No problem here.. If you look at him for a while and not just look at the colors, note the stand of his legs and how they are wide apart and his confirmation is good to make a good breeder. He did produce some very nice Pied Spalding's with a fair amount of green color showing up as he was not from a high percentage green bird to start with. connerhills

    that's good to know she did not borrow your photos and he is a gorgeous bird.
    I never realized the width between the legs was a sign of how good of a breeder a male would be, thanks for the info.

    He always was a good breeder.. The confirmation of him is my idea and there will be people question that I guess. It is like other things that are raised be it, cattle, horses, dogs ,sheep. The stance it has, the balance, proportions being equal , temperament . I thank all of peafowl people for their awareness of the photos being used. I guess when she bought the bird the photo went with it, so it is OK by me. connerhills[​IMG] What's going on down there ?
