    I know he isn't a 100% green. What would he be considered or called? I am newer to peacocks and trying to learn what all my birds are. He is going to be 3 this year and this will be his first year with his train.

  3. Any green bird that is not 100% pure is considered and called a spaulding.

    So if a Pavo Cristatusis not 100% and has green blood say 7 generations back is it also a spalding even though it my not show any characteristics of green showing,
    I was told it was long ago.
