    Is this how a 6 months old Black Shoulder Peacock is supposed to look like? We've been trying to figure out what is he since he was little. [​IMG]

    We don't know what the parents were. We have him (His name is Tiesto) and we have 2 India blue and 1 white. Here are some more pictures. But is this how a 6 months old Black Shoulder is supposed to look like?

    Yep its a boy and beautiful might I add. If your wondering about the white feathers, they will slowly go away in time as he matures and gets his big boy wardrobe ready.

    It will take about three years to fully change into his mature colors, but, yes, he is right where he should be at this age.
