    It supposed to be a Blue Spalding pied .... but all those grey feathers .... perhaps a little silver-pied blood ?

  2. Looks spalding silver pied to me but I need a picture of the whole bird. I don't know what "blue" spalding is supposed to mean. That is not a common term. Spalding is spalding. Some look more IB than others and some look more green than others.

    I think he was referring to a regular Spalding, as opposed to Cameo Spalding. It looks like it could be pied white-eyed, as it seems to have a lot of green on his tail, but patience pays off, and time will tell.

    Central feathers are white but both sides what color it will end in 2-3 years?
    This peacock comes from Josh from Rocking BAB Ranch... and in fact from his neighbor because spalding pied was out of stock when ordered.
    This is why I do not know its origins - mother and father.

    I do not like pictures of peacock pitching his tail .... we think we see something but in fact we see nothing.
    It's look like " a family outing to the local zoo!" picture.

    Here a 'puzzle'pictureâ—„ [​IMG] shows us something interesting!

    Leg of a pied peahen .... two fingers are pink (as the White Peacock) and one is grey ( as Blue Peacock ).
    The skin of the legs also can be pied ? ..... the skin of the legs is not the same like the skin of the body !
    Skin of the legs and feathers .... same kind? .... remember that a long time ago ... birds were dinosaurs!

    Hi Danny,

    i would say Spalding pied white eyed more than 50% green,

    you already can see a white eye appearing on the left side off the displaying picture, he also has too much colour to be silverpied i think, he looks great , think he will grow out into a very nice male,
