    I guess some have been breed into the other india blues. Nice someone has been keeping them pure.
    Yes the UPA has a list, but only about 100 have been bred to date.
    10 colors and 5 patterns. Make up the 185 Varieties.
    Like the blue come in barred wing,soild wing(blackshoulder),pied, silver pied, and white eye.

    Will that breed true? The oldest chicks definitely look like the parents and the blue hens chicks are feathering in with the lacing, it seems more black with a white lacing on them though.

    Not sure which males that are Nepalese. Know I get these hens sometimes. I sell most of all my blue hens. So I know some of my blue peacocks are Nepalese. This hen is spilt to Charcoal so will be mating her to my Charcoal White Eye Peacock.
    I only breed the India Blues in all colors and patterns. No greens or spaldings.
