For me, these birds are badly named! Red Buff Spalding . http://peafowlimagedatabase.weebly.com/red-buff-spalding.html Officially there are 12 colors : "Blue, White*, Charcoal, Bronze, Opal, Midnight, Jade, Taupe, Peach, Purple, Cameo, Sonjas Violeta" In fact 11 colors because white is a pattern.( if Pied is a pattern ... white is a pattern or the opposite ! White is a total Pied!) NO RED !!!!! Red Buff appears in the spalding .... only and in the Black Shoulder ..... only! It is the BLUE Black Shoulder spalding that can give either a Red Buff spalding ( Red Buff spalding Black Shoulder ) or a BLUE Black Shoulder spalding (With NO red buff color). Red Buff spalding Black Shoulder :.... true name BLUE red buff spalding Black Shoulder. BLUE spalding Black Shoulder : The pattern Black Shoulder has the particularity of giving very different birds! What do you say to that? Zebra! The mutation spalding Black shoulder gives peahens a chance to be superb birds!....A chance to be unique! They will keep these beautiful colors all their lives long ! The males of these different variations will be almost the same! ....Some want to call this oneurple red buff ! But where are we going?
