    Then hen in front of the male on the left has a few white feathers on her wings. Only like one or two but they are not the flight feathers just small wing feathers LOL I hope that stays and she gets more white on her as she gets older.

    WOW they look almost like my cameo, she has white flight feathers also.
    Do they have light and dark featrhering like my cameo?

    How are peach colors produced?
    I wished i could see them in person, There is a fella a few towns over from me that was said here to have peaches, but when i asked him about cameos and peaches all he said was he never had cameos but would never answer wheather he actually had peaches.

    I was given this link by the person giving me a cameo male and peach hen. He likes to work on peach and I said I would be glad to help. He knows nothing about genetics and has asked me to research some of it for him. He has several pairs of peach he is keeping and I am sure I will learn more as time goes on but for now it is all brand spanking new to me.
