    See the white flights on my bronze I got from you; does this indicate he is possibly split? He has a few white feathers scattered across his chest also.

    He looks dark pied meaning he is split to white.

    Quote:No not dark pied(yes they look alike) reason I know his father was bronze , 4 hens with him.....blue white eye, silver pied, blackshoulder, and pied, all split bronze.

    Some I knew which egg was from what hen ,others were unknown. So he could be from either pied or silver pied hen, if silver pied hen ,he could be white eye too.

    I have more peachicks from that pen.
