    I have a emerald pied spaulding and a india blue black shoulder males each 3years old. I have an india blue and blackshoulder peahen each about 3 years old and I have 5 white unsexed peacocoks born in late July last year. I believe 2 or 3 are female. This weekend I had a yellow peachick hatch out. I am assuming that it is a white peacock. Is it possible? If not, what kind do you think it is? Help. I will get some pictures up soon in hopes of getting a better clarification.

    Black shoulder hatch out looking white.. usually they show a slight cream tint on wing feathers and start showing more color as the feathers grow.

    Thanks, this is obviously a blackshoulder. I was really baffled.
