    I had 7 chicks hatch yesterday (out of 10 shipped eggs). One white, one BS, one almost white white with color on wing tips, and 4 that look sort of IB but very different shades.
    They were in a mixed pen of both males and females of : IB, IBBS, Black Shoulder Pied, opal,blue pied, silver pied.

    Any suggestions as to if these will all look IB or will show any other colors?

    Thanks so much!!

    OMG I am so excited!!!
    My first Java just hatched (day 26/27). Sorry about the crummy pic (cell phone) but I had to share it!!
    It is not as spectacular as Deermans charcoal/spaulding/pied chick, but I must be ALMOST as excited as he was!!
    The white chick is (hopefully) a BS opal. More to come I hope.

    Sorry I cant help on the color phase of chicks... Im still learning... I learned to take pictures of them as chicks and as they grow up so If I ever see another chick.. Ill know what it will become..

    I just wanted to say... Beautiful chicks... I love baby peafowl. I cant belive mine are the size they are now... my 1st peafowl was 2 indian blues that turned out to be male.

    best of luck

    To me yellow, purple and blue tags look white eyed. Orange tag looks darkish.. possibility of another color like bronze? It's also likely a split white due to white feather in wing.

    Congrats on the Java! [​IMG]

    The bad thing is with that many different varieties breeding together and not knowing which is the dad or the mom it will be real hard to tell what these chicks will be, But maybe one of the real experts will be able to tell you...........

    Yea- I'm asking if there was a chance of bronze or other colors in case there were splits or colors not mentioned in list. that one just looks pretty dark to me & doesn't quite match up with any of the listed colors, so..

    Yes all will look blue, Kev is good on seeing the W.E. If white eye ,those should be split to silver pied. One with white flight split pied.

    When the peacocks color out, if split BS will show small area of BS on their shoulder.

    Great job hatching ,and with shipped eggs.........I think the darker chick is just a blue nonwhite-eye

    Thanks!!
    One chick is still alive in the egg (not pipped).

    I do get chicks pipping the wrong end with the r-com.
    What should I do with it f it does not pip today?
    Do people ever help?

    I have sometimes in the past had to help, but not that often. but like I said before you may want to wait on the Peafowl experts to help you out.

    Congrats!

    The pen has:

    1.4 Blue Indias
    2.8 Black Shoulder
    2.2 Black Shoulder Pied
    1.3 Silver pied
    1.4 Blue Pied
    1.1 Opal
    1.1 Black Shouldered Silver Pied

    There also was 1 silver pied male, 1 BS Silver Pied male, and one pair of Purple in the pen when I shipped your eggs, but I had sold them before I sent you the list of what was in the community pen so I forgot to include them in the list. Also the Opals are Black Shouldereds.

    I have been selling more of the adults, and considering selling one of our trios of Emerald Pied Spaldings.

    The BS Silver Pied males, White, 1 Black Shoulder and Blue Pied are the most dominant males usually displaying.
