    I just hatched out a Java Green Maticus crossed with a White peafowl. I don't know anything about which was hen or cock or if either were also crosses. I was actually trying to get a couple of White eggs and misinterpreted his description.
    I am very new at this. She/he is 6 days old now and very healthy. Has a few white wing feather on one side and just a touch on other. Is this a Spalding?
    Also, after reading a little about Java Greens, I am wondering if this really is one. I pirchas d eggs on ebay! Now I have found BYC and will only get eggs from referred sellers here.

    Pure Muticus X white Cristatus = spalding 50% split white .It's the good way to get ... one day White spalding ... not spalding white eyes !
    Spalding white eyes is a totally other genetic you must use !

    Here is a spalding VERY high percentage white eyes (15/16 green) from Rocking B-A-B Ranch.

    For my he is more than white eyes ! white feather on the corner of the wing ( split white or pied ) and white patch on the neck .

    Thanks Dany, I don't know what is meant by ,,'White Eyes'
    I wish there was a site with some of the different colors and photos of them as babies and mature?
    I also am very worried. My Peachick who hatched last week is doing great. I have been crossing my fingers for the hatching of my last egg from another batch of 4 to hatch. The other 3 never started developing. Very sad. Tonight when I candled I dint see any movement. There was movement 2 days ago. It also looks very strange in ther?
    Oh well, I'm so new at this that I don't really know what I am seeing. Hopefully it is me being ignorant. :fl

    Thanks for the photos. They are great but what I really need is what color the different little ones are?
    Is there anything that shows the different colors as chicks and then as adults?
    Thanks,

    Hi Gerald.
    Yes, I did. Only 1 hatched. He/she is doing great except that I lost my last 2 eggs from a different batch that I was hoping would be her mates to grow up with.
    Today I drilled a hole in the air cell because I wasn't able to see any movement for 2-3 days and knew something was wrong. It looked like her head was stuck under a leg and it couldn't pip through the shell. Very sad.
    She was a White and now that leaves my other chick the last and only one. Now she is called Lonesome :rolleyes:
    I am writing on my iPad and it says something about the 'text editor' that I think BYC uses. Are my texts coming out ok?
    Lonesome now only has 3 Guinea keets to grow up with. I am not sure how that is going to work?? They came with the Peachick eggs. I've never had them before. They remind me of a bunch of mice running around. I put them together today. Lonesome doesn't seem thrilled with the situation but so far everyone seems to be getting along ok.
    Any, here I am with a lone Peachick and 3 keets. I think it more doubtful than not that I will be able to find any more viable Peachick eggs at this late date?
    Carol
