    If I were to mix a splading black shoulder peacock, that had a parent with cameo in it with my indian blue hen what color would I get? Also what would the splading black shoulder peacock look like when he fully colored out?

    Your male should be Split to Cameo, Crossing him with your indian blue should give you...

    Indian Blue Peafowl spaulding
    Indian Blue Peafowl spaulding split to black shoulder
    Indian Blue Peafowl spaulding Split to Cameo, Male's only
    Camdo Peafowl spaulding female only...


    Thats if I have my math correct... Your spaulding babies should be low percentage

    They'd possibly have the green bird crest and a little green around the neck and shoulder area, that's about it, do you know the males percentage? If he's 50% yes his offspring would show very littel spaulding characteristics, will also effect what he ends up looking like to

    No I don't know the % he is, the person I might get him from doesn't even know. He said he bought him as a chick and now that eggbid has gone under he is trying to get ride of some of his birds. But they said its a spaulding black shoulder, it looks like a black shoulder, and he said he was told one of its parents was a cameo. anything thing would help. I have a indian blue hen, and I like indian blues the best and cant find any of them so I was wondering if I got this peacock would I get any indian blue chicks out of it?

    Buying from random people does not give you any hope... People will tell you anything to get the sale... If they can provide you with breeding records... considering its just paper... gives you more hope... I have a little book that I write who breed who...

    Best of luck.. if you can post a picture of your male... we can tell you what he looks like... or if he dont look like a spaulding at all..

    If one of his parrents was Cameo...

    He will be split cameo in that case half of his daughters would be cameo , all his sons would look blue, but half split cameo.. That with your blue hen.

    so if I mixed him with my blue hen, half the girls would be cameo the other half blue, then all the males would look blue? Is that right?

    Yes, and the blue hens could not be split to cameo.
