    hi group,got a mixed batch from leggs farm.
    now they are 4 months old
    1 is a reg IB,but the other 2,looked like BS when chicks,but now ,wandering?
    they have white flight feathers,and their breasts are totally white.
    all other things,as in,neck color,etc are the same as the IB
    are these pieds?
    or is this the "norm",for BS?
    GARY
    ps,really dont care what they are!,but would like to know!!!

    If they started out yellow, and started getting color, yep BS .. BS do have color in their chest and flights. Sound like you may have BS pieds, and yes one bird could show more than one pattern.

    Pic would help, Legg sells many colors and patterns. We should be able to tell what they are from pics.

    hi,sorry,i dont have any way of posting pics
    they started out yellow,then got all colors of white/beige/tan/black
    so thought from posts BS
    like I said,look the same as the IB,but have pure whte breasts
    whether they are BS,or something like pied,will they at least look like an IB ,boby color wise?

    BS peacock look like IB except blackshoulder , need to be 2 or more to have the full color. Now if all white`area of white, then could be BS Pied, YOU have BS ,but maybe also pied.

    pic of one of my Blackshoulder Pied(has more white on his chest)he is also white eye(not alot of white eyes) So he is a blue with 3 patterns
