    Your peacock is gorgeous and the chick is precious. I never knew there were as many different beautiful color patterns of peafowl.

    Thanks all. yep lot of varieties, I have over 20 , but you can get them in 225 varieties.

    The chick is also spit to one of these patterns. white eye, pied, blackshoulder, or silverpied.

    I like the Bronze color.

    [​IMG] so beautiful! I got my first pair of blues this past week. I am so excited I have been just watching them for days. I can see myself having a lot of them when I have a big farm [​IMG]
